The Colorado Rockies have signed Matt Belisle to a contract extension, according to the team (via twitter). The deal essentially adds one more year and another $4.3 million, according to Danny Knobler, and includes a mutual option for 2014.

The Belisle extension comes despite Troy Renck's suggestion that Jhoulys Chacin was next, but that certainly doesn't preclude the team from getting his done as well. Renck also previously suggested the team will make no more moves this off-season:

  • Twitter / @Rockies - "#Rockies and RHP Matt Belisle agree on contract extension thru 2013, with mutual option for 2014. Belisle led MLB relievers in wins in 2011."
  • Twitter / @DKnobler - "Belisle already had 2012 deal with Rockies. They added one year plus option for about another $4.3 mill"
