Rockies first baseman Todd Helton has agreed to a two-year, $9 million extension with the team, according to The Denver Post.
The newspaper speculated the contract will allow Helton to retire with the organization that drafted him eighth overall in 1995.
Helton, a five-time All-Star, a three-time Gold Glove winner and the 2000 N.L. batting champion, hit .325 with 15 homers, 86 RBIs and a .416 on-base percentage in 151 games with Colorado last season.
In his 13-season major league career, Helton has a .328 batting average, 325 homers and 1,202 RBIs. His career .427 on-base percentage is the best among active players.
