Known for his effective breaking ball, Senzatela has thrived at hitter-friendly Coors Field. His .667 winning percentage in Denver is the second-highest by a Rockies starter at home (minimum 40 starts) in team history. He trails only Jorge De La Rosa, who was 53-20 at home (.726).
His new deal breaks down like this: $7.25 million in ‘22 and ’23, and $12 million in ‘24, ’25 and ‘26. The club holds an option in ‘27 for $14 million with no buyout. Senzatela can also earn $1 million each in escalators for 200 innings in ’22 and ’23. It would be applied to 2024-27.
Cron is slated to make $7 million next season and $7.5 million in ’23.
The 31-year-old Cron hit .281 with a team-leading 28 homers after signing a free-agent deal last February. His three grand slams this season were the most in franchise history.
He also earned NL player of the month honors for August when he led the NL in hitting (.387), home runs (11) and RBIs (34).
In 2020, Cron was limited to just 13 games with Detroit after undergoing left knee surgery. Cron’s also played for the Los Angeles Angels (2014-17), Tampa Bay Rays (2018) and the Minnesota Twins (2019).
