"We're not trying to trade him," Monfort said. "There's no story there."

Tulowitzki has struggled a bit in May, hitting .244 (11 for 45) with three RBI over his last 13 games played (12 starts). He is hitting .285/.297/.447 with two homers and 13 RBI in 128 at-bats this season

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rockies GM on Troy Tulowitzki trade rumors: Not based on facts


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said Friday that the rumors about shortstop Troy Tulowitzki being discussed in trades are not true, reports The Denver Post.

"In my opinion, it's something that has come out of a tough two week stretch for the Rockies, and one, obviously, where we haven't played to our expectations," he said. "That fuels speculation and then people go on the record and try to create types of news stories and controversies by writing opinions that are just that, opinions. They aren't based in fact. So really, nothing has changed."

With the Rockies struggling, Tulowitzki's name has been mentioned in variety of trade rumors, but Tulowitzki said he would not request a trade.

"Whatever happens on the Rockies' end happens, but for me to sit here and try to force my way out of here, that's not the case," Tulowitzki said.


Trading shortstop Troy Tulowitzki could be good for Rockies


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Will the Rockies trade start-shortstop Troy Tulowitzki? That's been a pertinent question for months, if not years. Tulowitzki went on record as recently as Thursday saying that he will not demand a trade and he wants to help the team break out of their losing ways.

But, as CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports, the Rockies may actually benefit from trading their home-grown shortstop. Sometimes a change of scenery is good for the player, and sometimes it's good for the team, and he feels that trading Tulowitzki is the right move for the Rockies. 

Heyman provides a list of 11 possible landing spots for Tulowitzki, with the Nationals looking like the best fit. He says Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo has told the Rockies numerous times that they would be involved if trade talks ever got serious, and they have the pitching prospects to make a deal possible.

Heyman does add that the Mets are not likely to add Tulowitzki at this time, with a Mets official telling him that they are "not interested" in acquiring him. The Mets unlikely to be willing to part with either Noah Syndergaard or Steven Matz, making a deal difficult, if not impossible.


Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki says he will not ask for trade


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said he will not demand a trade, after meeting with his agent. Instead, Tulowitzki is stepping up and insisting that he needs to play better to put an end to the Rockies' losing ways, according to MLB.com.

His agent Paul Cohen reportedly told the New York Post that Tulowitzki had been thinking about asking the team to trade him to a contender. However, the All-Star shortstop says he did not authorize Cohen to tell the publication that he was disgruntled.

Tulowitzki enters play on Thursday with a .303 batting average, but just two home runs on the year. Putting to rest any injury concerns early on, however, he has played in all 30 games for the Rockies thus far, starting all but three of them.


Agent: Troy Tulowitzki considering asking Rockies for trade


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is reportedly considering asking the only team he's ever played with for a trade, his agent Paul Cohen said per the New York Post.

"To say that it is not a possibility would be silly," Cohen said. "It could get to the point for [owner] Dick Monfort and GM Jeff [Bridich] that the storyline every day with the team is when is Tulowitzki being traded. That is negative for the franchise as the idea of trading the face of the franchise. They are smart enough to recognize they don't want that going forward."

Tulowitzki will meet with his agent on Thursday to seriously discuss the decision. He is hitting .307 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 101 at-bats so far this season.

Tulowitzki has slugged 13 doubles on the season to help produce a .307/.317/.495  line, but he hasn't displayed his typical home-run power in the early stages of the season. He's also drawn just two walks while striking out 23 times.

The shortstop, who went two for five with one RBI in the team's 5-2 win over the Brewers, was asked about the team's 2-0 record.
