Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is 'staying put'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) A team source told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman that Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is "staying put."  Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told FOX Sports earlier in the week that it is "highly, highly unlikely" Tulowitzki will be traded before opening day.

Tulowitzki, who has been linked to trade rumors involving the Mets this offseason, is under contract through 2020 on a six-year, $118 million deal. He is also recovering from August hip surgery.


Rockies' Bridich: 'Highly unlikely' Tulo, CarGo traded before opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told FOX Sports on Tuesday that it is "highly, highly unlikely" shortstop Troy Tulowitzki or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will be traded before opening day.

Tulowitzki, who has been linked to trade rumors involving the Mets this offseason, is under contract through 2020 on a six-year, $118 million deal. He is also recovering from August hip surgery.

Gonzalez is under contract through the 2017 season on a seven-year, $80 million contract. He is also recovering from surgery in August to repair the patellar tendon in his left knee.


Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki wants to move past injury concerns


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has heard the rumors about being injury-prone and he said it only motivates him to play better, reports MLB.com.

Tulowitzki only appeared in 91 games during the 2014 season and said his main goal for 2015 is to stay on the field.

"I've heard that I'm injury-prone. I've heard that I'm getting older. I like it," he said. "That stuff fuels me. It makes my workouts better. It makes me want it that much more. I just want to prove that I can do it. For so long, I've worked so hard to try to stay on the field. That's what keeps driving me - to stay on the field, help this team win and try to solidify myself as the best player in the game."

He added that he wants to play between 140 and 160 games, but he knows it will be a challenge as he gets older.

"It's been a battle for me, no doubt," Tulowitzki said. "I do everything I possibly can to prepare for the season and make myself healthy."


Rockies' Bridich: Tulo 'starting to ramp up the pure baseball activity'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who underwent surgery to repair a torn left hip labrum, has been cleared to ramp up baseball activities, per MLB.com.

"Tulo was in Denver last week just for a couple days for a routine checkup on his progress, and everything's great," Rockies senior vice president and general manager Jeff Bridich said. "He's swinging fully, he's taking full batting practice in the cage, and this week he's starting to add taking ground balls in the infield and really starting to ramp up the pure baseball activity."


Rockies co-owner Monfort: Tulo to Mets is 'not happening'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) If there was any hope for Mets' fans seeing shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in a New York uniform next season, Rockies co-owner Charlie Monfort did his best Thursday to shoot down that scenario.

“It’s not happening,” Monfort told the New York Post. “I can’t speak for him, but yeah, we want him. I think he’s strong and he’s worked hard and he’ll be back. He’ll be Tulo of old.”

The Mets and Rockies have engaged in trade talks during the offseason, but haven't made progress because the Rockies have asked for significant talent in return, including current major-leaguers and prospects, per the Post. The Rockies have also not offered to pay for any of the $118 million Tulowitzki is still owed on his contract through the 2020 season.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported in December that Mets starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard was at the center of the trade talks in a deal for Tulowitzki.

Tulowitzki is open to a trade to a contender and the Yankees have a significant need at shortstop. But it remains to be seen how committed Colorado is to dealing him.

Mets P Syndergaard center of Tulowitzki talks with Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Premier Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard is the centerpiece of trade talks involving Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who is further reporting that the teams are not close to finalizing a trade.

The pitching-rich Mets are dangling the 22-year-old Syndergaard, who struggled at the Triple-A level in 2014 with a 4.60 ERA and career-worst 1.48 WHIP. Syndergaard has fanned 474 in just 426 2/3 innings.


Mets, Rockies still in talks for Troy Tulowitzki


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Mets and Rockies have been discussing a potential deal that would sent shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to New York this offseason, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. However, it remains to be seen how likely of a chance New York will have of acquiring Tulowitzki via trade. A source told Heyman the likelihood of a trade to the Mets appear to be "slim" at the moment.

Tulowitzki was hitting a league-best .340 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI before suffering a hip injury in the middle of the year. He has $118 million remaining over the next six seasons.


Rockies GM listening to offers for Tulowitzki, nothing 'serious'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Rockies General Manager Jeff Bridich said Sunday he is listening to offers for short stop Troy Tulowitzki at the Winter Meetings, but nothing "serious" has developed, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

Tulowitzki is set to make over $118 million through 2020. He was hitting a league best .340 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI before suffering a hip injury in the middle of the year. 

"There hasn't been anything serious enough yet with Tulo -- just talk, ideas thrown out," Bridich said.


Report: Yankees unlikely to make a run at acquiring Troy Tulowitzki


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) While the Yankees are usually in the mix any time a big-name player is mentioned, it appears they will not make a run at acquiring Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to replace retired shortstop Derek Jeter. The Yankees acquiring Tulowitzki has always been considered a long shot, but there are now strong indications it won't happen, according to the New York Daily News.

According to the report, the Yankees are sending clear signals they have no interest in assuming the $114 million remaining on Tulowitzki's contract, which runs through 2020 and has a $15 million team option for 2021.


Report: Rockies lean toward keeping Tulowitzki, Gonzalez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Rockies are leaning toward standing pat rather than trading stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, according to ESPN, which is speculating that despite injuries and contract obligations, both are too talented to be swapped without receiving equal value.

The timing for such a deal could indeed be wrong considering that both lost about half of the 2014 season to injuries.


Rockies' Tulowitzki getting close to increasing intensity in workouts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is nearing the point in his rehab from August hip surgery where he is ready to increase the intensity, according to MLB.com. 

"He's running," Bridich said Wednesday. "Rotational stuff? No. Cuts, I don't know. It's been a progression, I'm not entirely sure where he's at.

"December is a really important month where we start to ramp things up. Some of it was being patient and letting the rehab take its course and not overdo it."


Troy Tulowitzki 'right on schedule' coming off August hip surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who is the subject of trade rumors, is progressing well coming off August hip surgery, according to Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich. He said he saw Tulowitzki at the team's spring training facility in Arizona during a voluntary "fitness summit."

"Troy looked really good. He's right on schedule," Bridich said, per The Denver Post. "The surgery went really well, and now Tulo is working his (tail) off to get back. That's one thing about him: You always know he's committed."


Report: Rockies trading Troy Tulowitzki to Mets is 'not happening'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) While there are reports the Mets are talking to the Rockies about a potential trade for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources briefed on the matter told ESPN that a trade is "not happening." Although, the Mets are planning to make a trade in order to upgrade at shortstop.

The Diamondbacks, Mariners, White Sox and Cubs are viewed as four possible trade partners for the Mets. A deal for Tulowitzki is not on the Mets' radar because of the $100 million-plus still owed, as well as the crop of elite prospects the Mets would likely have to deal to Colorado to land Tulowitzki, according to the report.


Report: Mets talking to Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Mets have talked to the Rockies about a trade involving shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources told Yahoo Sports. However, the fear is the Mets can't afford acquiring Tulowitzki, but the two sides are still talking.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms the two sides aren't engaged in significant talks at this juncture.

The Mets announced Monday they signed Tulowitzki's former Rockies teammate, Michael Cuddyer. The Mets gave up a 2015 first-round pick to sign Cuddyer, who turned down a one-year qualifying offer from the Rockies.

The oft-injured Tulowitzki played just 91 games in 2014 for the Rockies, but hit .340 with a .630 slugging percentage and 1.035 OPS. He has a career .299/.373/.517/.891 slash line. Although, his career splits at hitter-friendly Coors Field (.323/.565/.962) are much better than his road numbers (.274/.469/.818).


Rockies to listen on Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The Rockies are willing to listen to offers for Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, according to FoxSports.com.

The team won't actively shop either player, but is willing to listen to offers, which is a departure from the past. Both players have immense talent, but that comes with a disposition toward injuries. Tulowitzki was limited to just 91 games last year due to a hip injury. Gonzalez played in just 70 games due to finger and knee issues.

Both players also are owed a fair amount of money moving forward. Tulo still has $114 million left over six seasons. Gonzalez is owed $53 million over the next three. 


Trading Tulowitzki, Gonzalez would be 'tough pill to swallow' for Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki have been linked trade rumors quite often. New Rockies general manager Jeff Birdich seems against trading Colorado's two superstar players, but he appears willing to listen to offers.

"We are well aware how talented they both are," Birdich told MLB Network Radio Thursday. "Thinking about trading them would be a tough pill to swallow. Though, it would be unwise for us to close our ears or eyes to any trading possibility."


Troy Tulowitzki intends to remain a shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki told The Denver Post he has no intentions of changing positions, despite two major surgeries to his left hip and groin area in the past two seasons. Tulowitzki also suffered a torn left quadriceps in 2008.

"No, I won't move," he said in a phone interview. "I will retire before I move.

"No. It's just who I am, it's what I do, it's what I have dreamed of as a kid. It's all I know and it's all I've ever worked for. So I guess when you have a dream and you accomplish it and someone tries to take it away from you ... it wouldn't be worth it for me to try to move somewhere else."

Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Tulowitzki's hip operation was a success and is on track to be ready for spring training. Tulowitzki, who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, is still on crutches, but he's been cleared to ride a stationary bike.

"The hope is that fixing the labrum kind of stabilizes my hip so that it's not the weakest link in my body, because the labrum was torn," Tulowitzki said. "Maybe those muscles in my legs, which have been working so hard ... can actually breathe now. I hope this works, so (the muscles) don't have to take the brunt of the work."


Troy Tulowitzki transferred to 60-day disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. The shortstop is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery.

Troy Tulowitzki proves something in shortened season


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2014) Troy Tulowitzki's career season came to an unceremonious end Wednesday with the announcement he needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

Most people who read that sentence will focus on the bad news -- specifically, three words: surgery, torn and hip. What they'll miss is the good news: career season.

Yes, Tulowitzki entered Thursday leading baseball in batting average (.340), on-base percentage (.432) and slugging percentage (.603). He's been the best hitter in the game this year, and he's done it at by far the weakest position. No Hanley Ramirez to narrow the gap this year. To use Head-to-Head points per game as an example (not because it's the only format that matters, but because it provides a clearer basis for comparison), the next-best shortstop to Tulowitzki, Jose Reyes, is 0.54 behind him. The gap between Tulowitzki and the rest of the position is like the gap between Ian Kinsler and Asdrubal Cabrera at second base.

After a slight dip last year that had some (myself included) fearing the injuries were beginning to catch up to him, Tulowitzki bounced back in a big way, reminding everyone he's the most valuable player in Fantasy when he's healthy enough to play. But of course, he frequently isn't.

Before I learned he needed hip surgery, I was prepared to rank him third, behind Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera, going into 2015. With the reminder of his fragility, I've dropped him to sixth, but I maintain that 110-120 games from him are more valuable than 150 games from a comparable first baseman or outfielder.

You'll find the rest of my projected first round here.


Troy Tulowitzki to undergo surgery, miss rest of season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo labral repair surgery on his left hip Friday and miss the remainder of the season, MLB.com reports.

Tulowitzki has been sidelined since July 19 with the hip injury. He finishes the season with a .340/.432/.603 line along with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 315 at-bats.


Troy Tulowitzki still dealing with discomfort in hip


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Sunday shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has returned to Denver to continue treatment because he continues to feel "on-and-off discomfort" in his hip, according to The Denver Post. Tulowitzki is set to consult with specialists to aid in the recovery process.

Tulowitzki is not close to coming off the disabled list or beginning a minor-league rehab assignment.


Tulowitzki: Staying with Rockies forever would be 'special'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Rockies stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who had been subject of trade rumors at the deadline last week, has stressed that he would prefer to remain with the team for the rest of his career.

"That would be special," he told MLB.com.

Tulowitzki has also expressed frustration over playing for a team that has not enjoyed a winning season since 2010. He had offered that he yearned to play for a club with a chance at the playoffs every year. Those words, uttered on July 4, fueled speculation about a trade. He denied any claims that he wanted to be dealt.

"People twist stories how they want it to be," he said. "I never said I demanded a trade or wanted out. I said if it was the best interest of the team to trade me for prospects and they came to me ... But I signed a contract because I wanted to be with the organization for a long time. Yeah, I'm tired of losing. I think all of us are."

Tulowitzki has been on the disabled list with a hip flexor since July 19.


Troy Tulowitzki takes batting practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki took batting practice before Wednesday's game, the Denver Post reports.

It's Tulowitzki's first workout since going on the disabled list with a hip flexor injury in mid-July. He was eyeing a potential return in mid-August, and he may be able to head out on a rehab assignment soon.


Rockies, Mets blockbuster unlikely to come together


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Rockies and Mets have gotten together a few times to discuss major deal involving Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Wednesday any move is unlikely to come before Thursday's deadline.

"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the talks told Heyman.

Gonzalez and Tulowitzki are both under long-term deals with the Rockies, but the team's struggles have pushed them into considering a move. The Mets would likely have to part with much of their young pitching talent to get the deal done, but that will likely have to wait until the offseason. The report also indicates a deal for Gonzalez is more likely than Tulowitzki, once talks resume after Thursday.
