Report: Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki looks completely healthy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki looks completely healthy heading into the final week of spring training, the Denver Post reports.

"I think if anything, this spring has given me confidence," Tulowitzki said. "When I was diagnosed with a torn labrum last summer, you think about a lot of things. You think about your career and whether or not you'll be the same player. You check out how you feel, day in and day out. I know it's just spring training, but for me, I've gained a lot of confidence. I know I can be the same player, if not better."

Tulowitzki was in the midst of his finest offensive season last year before undergoing hip surgery and being limited to 91 games. He finished with a .340/.432/.603 line with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 315 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was scratched from the spring lineup Saturday against the Dodgers. Luckily, though, it was not due to injury.

"He's fine," Weiss said, per MLB.com. "I was just mapping out his workload. I just made a decision to give him a day today, as opposed to playing him back-to-back. It had nothing to do with how he felt physically."

Tulowitzki has a history a leg injuries and is coming off hip surgery in August. He is batting .214 (3 for 14) with two home runs and three RBI in seven spring games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Gonzalez, who is on his way back from August knee surgery, will bat second. Tulowitzki, who is recovering from August hip surgery, is slotted third. Both players have been ahead of schedule this spring.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Tulowitzki testing surgically-repaired hip with simulated game action


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is testing surgically-repaired hip with extensive workouts at Salt River Fields in Arizona. Tulowitzki is creating game scenarios at the plate, on the field and on the bases to see how his hip responds, per MLB.com.

"I'm trying to put myself in game situations with all the things that I'm doing so that something doesn't sneak up on me that I haven't done before," Tulowitzki said Friday morning. "There are a lot of situations in a game that happen, and there are only so many days to work on those. I can't just throw them into one big session."


Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez run bases Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez ran the bases Monday morning, the Denver Post reports.

Tulowitzki is returning from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is working his way back from August knee surgery. Manager Walt Weiss pointed out Saturday that the ability to run the bases is a big step in the recovery of both players.

"It's not [far off], relatively speaking," Weiss said when asked when the two would play in games, per MLB.com. "I don't want to put a time frame on it, but put it this way: It's going to happen sooner than I probably thought this winter."


Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez to start running bases next week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are slated to start running the bases next week, MLB.com reports.

The team is taking it slow with both players after they lost a significant part of the 2014 season to injuries after undergoing surgeries in August. Neither player will see time in Wednesday's Cactus League opener.

"There are still some things they need to do on the field before they're even ready to go into a game -- running bases, specifically," manager Walt Weiss said Saturday. "Last year, we'd have been very happy with the way they're at right now when we thought about their recovery and everything they had to go through. With where they are now, we're very encouraged by it."


Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki ready to go coming off hip surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki arrived to spring training Monday eager to get back on the field following August hip surgery, per The Denver Post.

"I'm ready to go," Tulowitzki said. "As far as my schedule is concerned, I'm not too sure about it. Walt (Weiss) is the manager. I'll go at his pace, but it'll probably be slower than I'd like.

"That's what I like to do is compete -- at the highest level. What gets my blood flowing is competing out there in games. So I'm excited."

Tulowitzki has had his fair share of injury issues throughout his career, but he has no doubts he can be in the lineup for an entire season.

"The injury history is something I have to talk about because it is an issue and it's hurt me in the past," he said. "If there's anybody in this locker room who knows baseball and pays attention to it, it's definitely myself.

"But I don't want to talk about this stuff too much. When gametime comes and you see me out there, judge for yourself. I can say I'm as healthy as I want, but it doesn't matter until I go out there and play."


Rockies' Weiss: CarGo, Tulo won't be rushed at start of spring training


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said the team will take it easy on outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki at the outset of spring training, per The Denver Post. Tulowitzki is recovering from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is recovering from August knee surgery.

"Yes, I think that's the plan," Weiss said. "We will go slowly with those two guys. I feel like position players get ready pretty quickly, so I don't think you need a ton of at-bats. You can always go over to the minor-league side to get at-bats in a day, if needed.

"So I'm not concerned about those guys being ready. They will get their at-bats. The plan is to take it slow early on with Tulo and CarGo, and not put them into a game until they are absolutely ready to do so."


Rockies manager Walt Weiss: CarGo, Tulo are 'ahead of schedule'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday morning shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez "are on schedule or even ahead of schedule," per MLB Network Radio. Tulowitzki is recovering from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is recovering from August knee surgery.

"We feel like CarGo and Tulo are still elite and in their prime. We feel like there's a window of opportunity here," Weiss said.

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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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

"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."

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).
