The Tigers did not appear interested in finding out whether this would translate over the course of an entire season, so they did not re-sign him.
Instead, in February of 2021, he signed a one-year contract with the Colorado Rockies.
After being given the opportunity to start at first base, he made the most of it by displaying impressive power at the plate and walking more batters than he ever had before.
On August 16th, he won the game for Colorado with a walk-off home run, which was hit against Daniel Hudson of the San Diego Padres. Colorado won the game 6-5.
The fact that it was the 11th walk-off hit for an otherwise average Rockies team was interesting because it set a new record for the franchise and also led the league at that point.
Because of his consistent hitting throughout the month of August, which culminated in a batting average of .387, 11 home runs, 34 RBIs, and 77 total bases, he was named the National League Player of the Month.
