DENVER — Colorado finalized $27 million, three-year contracts with right-hander Bryan Shaw and lefty Jake McGee on Friday, moves the Rockies hope will fortify their bullpen.

The 30-year-old Shaw was 4-6 with three saves and a 3.52 ERA last season for Cleveland. His 475 appearances since his 2011 debut are the third-most among relief pitchers in that span.

McGee was acquired from Tampa Bay before the 2016 season. The 31-year-old was 0-2 with three saves and a 3.61 ERA this year as the Rockies returned to the postseason for the first time since 2009 only to lose to Arizona in the NL wild-card game.

Shaw gets salaries of $7.5 million next year, $8.5 million in 2019 and $9 million in 2020, and the Rockies have a $9

Colorado has a $4.25 million option for 2020 with a $750,000 buyout, and that year's salary would become guaranteed if he has 220 starts at catcher in 2018-19 combined and is healthy.

A fourth-round pick by Colorado in 2004, Iannetta spent parts of six seasons with the team before being traded to the Los Angeles Angels on Nov. 30, 2011, for pitcher Tyler Chatwood. Iannetta was with the Angels for four seasons. He signed with Seattle for the 2016 season.

Another downtown Denver parking lot will soon be plowed under to make way for a mixed-use development. This project has the potential to be particularly unique. It will have space for Dinger.

Stantec, a multi-national architectural design firm, this week released renderings of a forthcoming outdoor plaza complex it is designing on behalf of the Colorado Rockies. The structure, which is expected to include restaurants, offices, a hotel and residences revolving around a screen-laden public plaza, will rise where a parking lot now sits at 19th and Wazee streets. The project’s chief attraction, according to the designer, will be all about baseball: The Rockies’ team hall of fame.
