The Colorado Rockies and free-agent first baseman Justin Morneau agreed to a two-year deal worth $13 million, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

The Rockies need to replace Todd Helton, who retired at the end of last season.

Morneau, 32, is a former American League Most Valuable Player who hit .259 with 17 home runs with 77 RBI in 152 games for the Minnesota Twins and the Pittsburgh Pirates last season.

Morneau has dealt with various injuries over the years, including missing 78 games in 2010 after suffering a concussion. The next season, he sat out 55 games because of a herniated disc.
