Free agent catcher Chris Iannetta is returning to the Colorado Rockies, the team announced Friday afternoon.

It's a 2 year, $8.5 million deal, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.

Iannetta started his career with the Rockies, where he played six seasons from 2006-2011 and batted .235.

He played this past year with the Arizona Diamondbacks, totaling 70 starts in 89 games.

Now a seasoned veteran, Iannetta comes back to Colorado as a career .231 hitter with 124 home runs and 445 runs batted in over the course of 12 seasons.

The biggest question now is what the organization will decide to do with former starter Jonathan Lucroy, who is also a free agent.

Lucroy--who was acquired by the Rockies in a trade in July--played a big role for the team in its postseason run in 2017, hitting .310 in 46 games.
