Troy Tulowitzki (hip) began fielding drills this week.
"Tulo was in Denver last week just for a couple days for a routine checkup on his progress, and everything's great," Rockies 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." Making his way back from surgery to repair his torn left hip labrum, Tulo is expected to enter spring training with no restrictions. However, he’s only been on the field for an average of 88 games over the last three seasons and remains a huge health risk. Jan 23 - 12:22 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have checked in with the Rockies on Troy Tulowitzki.

Heyman reported late last week that the Mets and Rockies had been "quietly discussing" the parameters of a Tulowitzki trade, but the two sides have not been able to find a match. And while the Yankees also have a big hole at shortstop, they probably don't possess the kind of elite-level prospects that Colorado would want in a return package. Heyman writes Monday that it "remains unclear how committed the Rockies-owning Monfort brothers are to trading the beloved Tulo."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Rockies "have been quietly discussing" a potential Troy Tulowitzki trade for weeks.

He adds that pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard "is said to be the centerpiece of discussions" of the package that would head to the Rockies. However, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the two teams have talked all offseason but no traction has been gained. A source told him he thinks the chances of the two sides completing a deal are "5-10 percent." In other words, nothing has really changed here.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Rockies have been "poking around" on a potential Troy Tulowitzki trade with the Mets, but he continues to hear that a deal is "not happening."

In other words, not much has changed over the past month. Rockies owner Dick Monfort is close with Tulo and is inclined to keep him or get the OK from his star shortstop before signing off on a deal. Things could change if the Mets (or someone else) gets aggressive, but at this point it looks like Tulo is staying put in Colorado.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Rockies owner Dick Monfort "suggested to inquiring teams" at the owners meeting that Troy Tulowitzki isn't available for trade.

General manager Jeff Bridich has indicated that he's willing to listen to offers for Tulo (and Carlos Gonzalez), but Heyman notes that Monfort is "extremely close" to the shortstop and is inclined to keep him. Heyman also adds that, even though Tulo doesn't have a no-trade clause, Monfort wouldn't approve dealing the shortstop to a club unless Tulo OK'd the trade. It probably wouldn't be the best time for the Rockies to deal their star, anyway, given that he's coming off an injury-shortened season and is recovering from hip surgery.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that there are "strong indications" that the Yankees will not be in on Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

To start with, rival officials who have spoken with the Rockies over the past two weeks are under the impression that Tulowitzki will not be traded. However, even putting that aside, Martino hears that the Yankees are not interested in taking on the remainder of his contract. While the 30-year-old is elite when healthy and a perfect replacement for Derek Jeter on paper, he's owed $114 million over the next six seasons. Things could change, but the Yankees appear likely to do something less splashy.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York hears from sources briefed on the matter that a potential trade between the Mets and Rockies involving Troy Tulowitzki is "not happening."

There are a number of factors which understandably give them pause, including his health, the $100-plus million remaining on his contract, and the number of elite prospects they would have to give up in a deal. The Mets aren't enthused about the shortstop options in free agency, so they are expected to explore the trade market to find a solution. Rubin lists the Diamondbacks, Mariners, White Sox, and Cubs among the more realistic trade partners.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Mets have yet to talk to the Rockies about a trade for Troy Tulowitzki.

ESPN's Buster Olney has confirmed Saunders' report, which contradicts an earlier report from Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. The Mets have been mentioned often as a potential landing spot for Tulo, and although it's possible they've had internal talks about him, it doesn't appear the two teams have discussed a deal yet. The Rockies are expected to listen to offers for Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez this winter.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Mets have talked to the Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki.

Passan adds, however, that the Mets "fear they can't afford" the Rockies' asking price -- likely multiple top prospects. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported last week that Colorado's front office finally has its "eyes and ears" open to a trade involving Tulo or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, but they're both coming off injury-plagued seasons. It's not a certainty that either player is moved this winter.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears the Rockies are keeping their "eyes and ears open" for potential trades involving Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez.

Rosenthal clarifies that the club isn't shopping either player, but rather that they'd be willing to listen to offers for either or both. It's not surprising given how much money the team has tied up in the pair despite annually finishing near the bottom of the National League. Even so, a deal for either would likely require a team to pay a steep price in terms of prospects and major league players.

Rockies activated SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 60-day disabled list.

Tulo's 2014 campaign ended in August when he had surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip. He's expected to be ready for spring training.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) said Friday that he will retire before he considers a position change.

Tulo has had two major surgeries to his left hip and groin area in the past two years and also tore his left quad in 2008. Moving to a different position would theoretically give him a better chance of staying healthy, but he's not interested. "No. It's just who I am, it's what I do, it's what I have dreamed of as a kid," said Tulowitzki. "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 and move somewhere else."

Rockies transferred SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Matt McBride. Tulo, of course, is out for the season following surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip.

Troy Tulowitzki underwent successful surgery Friday to repair the labrum in his left hip.

The Rockies haven't provided a timetable on Tulowitzki's recovery, but he should be ready to go for spring training. The operation ends what was shaping up to be a terrific season for the shortstop, as Tulo hit .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI over 91 games.

Troy Tulowitzki will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip.

Tulo visited an orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday with the fear that his labrum might be involved, and that appears to be the case. It's a disappointing development for the potential NL MVP. Tulowitzki's season ends with the shortstop hitting .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI.
