The Rockies have signed Mike Jacobs to a minor-league deal to provide insurance behind Todd Helton at first base. Colorado added Ty Wigginton to spell Helton at first last week. Jacobs hit 32 home runs for Florida in 2008. He will make $14,000 a month in the minor leagues and $700,000 if he's in the majors, according to the Denver Post.
