McMahon and the Rockies agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.375 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
McMahon's fantasy value continues to be propped up by the fact that he plays half his games at Coors Field, but he's yet to show much at the plate. He hit just .215/.295/.419 last season while striking out 34.2 percent of the time. It's hard to say he's earned anything close to an everyday role, but that's been true for the past two seasons as well and hasn't stopped the Rockies from pencilling his name into the lineup on most occasions.

McMahon went 2-for-3 with two walks, two home runs, four RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Astros.
McMahon's big day at the plate began in the second inning, when he took Cristian Javier deep for a two-run shot. He doubled down on the production with another two-run homer in the fifth frame.

McMahon took Tim Hill deep in the sixth inning, driving a ball just over the center field wall. It was his first home run of the season. While he's managed to reach base 11 times in his first 34 plate appearances, McMahon has struck out at least once in each of his starts this season. That has given him an inflated strikeout rate of 38 percent, a troubling mark even over a small sample size.
McMahon is expected to be the starter at second base this season, but he will also see some time at first base, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Manager Bud Black said in February he expected the 25-year-old to play 150-plus games this season, and though that's now impossible due to the shortened season, his relative outlook remains similar. Daniel Murphy is expected to be the primary starter at first base, but McMahon will likely start there when the veteran slugger serves as the designated hitter. Garrett Hampson, Brendan Rodgers and Chris Owings figure to split time at the keystone in that alignment.
