Michael Cuddyer signing with Rockies “could happen today”

Josh Willingham’s three-year, $21 million deal with the Twins isn’t finalized yet, but it sounds just about official and that means the man he’s replacing in Minnesota, Michael Cuddyer, could also be on the verge of choosing a new team.

Cuddyer has been linked to Colorado all offseason and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are “still firmly in the mix to get Cuddyer” and it “could happen today.”

Cuddyer delayed his decision on the Twins’ three-year, $25 million offer to the point that they simply decided to move on, so presumably he felt confident about having a similar (or better) deal on the table elsewhere.
