Troy Tulowitzki made his Blue Jays debut and went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.
What a way to make a debut. He struck out in his first at-bat with his new club, but made up for it with a two-run home run in the third inning. He added an RBI double in the sixth. Tulowitzki now has 13 home runs on the year with 56 RBI along with a .305 average. The Rogers Center is friendly to right-handed hitters, so the move away from Coors Field may not hurt his numbers all that much. Jul 29 - 9:54 PM

Troy Tulowitzki is at shortstop and batting leadoff in his Blue Jays debut Wednesday.

He might be lower in the order if Devon Travis (shoulder) wasn't hurt, but, unfortunately, that's not the case. It's the first time in Tulowitzki's career that he's hit leadoff.

Blue Jays acquired SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins from the Rockies for SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco.

While many expected the Blue Jays to make a big splash for their pitcher, they stunned the baseball world late Monday night by upgrading what was already the best offense in the majors. Tulowitzki has managed to stay mostly healthy this season while batting .300/.348/.471 with 12 home runs and 53 RBI over 87 games. His injury history is a concern, especially on the turf at Rogers Centre, but the 30-year-old could age better in the American League because of the ability to DH. Tulowitzki will receive a $2 million assignment bonus for being traded and his contract now includes a full no-trade clause. He's owed $94 million from 2016-2020 with a $15 million club option or $4 million buyout in 2021.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins have been traded to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and minor leaguers.

Well, how about that for a late-night surprise? Offense certainly wasn't a need for Toronto given that they are leading baseball in runs by a wide margin, but they obviously saw an opportunity to make a strength even stronger. They're also improving their defense with the deal, as Reyes' defense has really gone south. Tulo is under contract through 2020 with a club option for 2021. Reyes might be flipped elsewhere, as dealing Tulo but then taking on Reyes' contract wouldn't mesh with the Rockies' rebuild. Colorado is reportedly set to receive Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and one other minor leaguer in the deal.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mets made a push for Troy Tulowitzki but came away with the impression that the Rockies will not move him.

The Mets have the kind of young pitchers the Rockies should be trying to stockpile, but there has been no indication from the Colorado front office that Tulo is on the block. And it seems the Mets have now moved on to other offensive targets like Ben Zobrist, Jay Bruce, and Justin Upton. Tulowitzki, 30, is under contract with the Rockies through at least 2020.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a three-run homer in the first inning and went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Tulowitzki's three-run bomb in the first inning was his ninth homer of the season. He's been his typically brilliant self this season, slashing .321/.358/.489. While the power's down from some of his best seasons, Tulo's been healthy to this point, which is what matters most for the oft-injured star. Management has stressed that the shortstop won't be traded, but expect his name to at least surface in rumors over the next three weeks, even if he doesn't ultimately change uniforms.
