Tulowitzki took Tim Hudson yard in the fourth inning, part of a three-run frame for the Rockies. The shortstop has three homers on the spring along with eight RBI and a .375 average (9-for-24). Tulowitzki should contribute immense fantasy value provided he can stay healthy. Mar 25 - 6:48 PM

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with a bases-clearing double Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Tulowitzki doubled with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, running the Rockies' lead to 5-0 at the time. The performance runs his average up to .333 (6-for-18) and he has two home runs and six RBI to go with it. If Tulowitzki can stay healthy, he should post MVP-caliber numbers. He had a 1.035 OPS in 375 plate appearances last season.

Troy Tulowitzki slugged a two-run home run in Sunday's Cactus League match-up against the Royals.

Tulowitzki took Aaron Brooks deep in the first inning to put the Rockies up 2-0 early. Justin Morneau immediately followed up with a homer of his own to go back-to-back. The Rockies' shortstop now has two dingers on the spring. There's never been a question whether he'll hit; it's always been whether he'll stay healthy. Tulowitzki missed a few games in the first half due to minor ailments, then missed the final two and a half months due to a torn labrum in his hip. He finished with a 1.035 OPS in 375 plate appearances.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Mariners in the Cactus League.

Tulo walked in his only other at-bat. The homer came in the first inning off Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez, his first of the spring. As long as he remains healthy there will be plenty more where that came from for the 30-year-old this season.

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) is making his spring debut in Monday's Cactus League game versus the Reds.

He is batting third and starting at shortstop. Tulo sat out the first week or so of Cactus League games as a precautionary measure following last year's hip surgery. He should be 100 percent on Opening Day.
Mar 9 - 11:03 AM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) began base-running work Monday.

He is easing into action this spring after undergoing season-ending hip surgery last August. Tulowitzki should be ready for Opening Day and remains a first-round fantasy guy because of his immense level of production when healthy. He hit .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 91 games last season.
Mar 2 - 12:28 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) will run the bases next week.

Tulo is recovering from surgery to repair his torn left hip labrum, and the Rockies are taking it slow with their superstar as he returns to action. Tulowitzki has already been taking infield practice this spring, another good sign. Assuming his progress continues, Tulo should be ready to roll for Opening Day.
Feb 28 - 6:29 PM

Rockies general Jeff Bridich told FOX Sports' Jon Morosi on Tuesday that it's "highly, highly unlikely" either Troy Tulowitzki or Carlos Gonzalez will be dealt before Opening Day.

There's been some debate about whether the Rockies actually want to move them at all, but Tulowitzki is coming off hip surgery and Gonzalez is working his way back from knee surgery, so teams likely want to see how they look in the spring and/or the early part of the season before seriously thinking about the possibility. Tulo is owed $114 million over the next six seasons while CarGo is owed $53 million over the next three seasons.

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.

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.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 02:24:00 PM

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.
