Rockies GM Jeff Bridich said Tuesday that there have not been any negotiations toward a contract extension with star third baseman Nolan Arenado.

Arenado is projected to make close to $13 million in 2017 -- his second year of salary arbitration -- after batting .294/.362/.570 with 41 home runs and an MLB-high 133 RBI in 160 games last season. "We will work on trying to get a one-year deal done and if things come up, just like anything else, we are going to keep an open mind to anything," Bridich told the Denver Post. Arenado, 25, is currently under the Rockies' control through 2019.
