DENVER -- Looking to bolster a bullpen that undermined last season's playoff push, the Rockies signed left-handed reliever Mike Dunn on Thursday, Denver7 confirmed.

He will be introduced in a press conference ?at 12:30 p.m. today. Dunn receives a three-year, $19 million deal. He will replace free agent Boone Logan. 

Dunn went 6-1 with a 3.40 ERA last season, with 38 strikeouts in 42.1 innings. His platoon splits run fairly equal against lefties and righties. Dunn, 31, has eight years of experience with the Yankees, Marlins and Braves.

Dunn's signing was first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney.
