Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort has said he’s not trading all-star Troy Tulowitzki.
Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reported this week that the Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals could potentially discuss a trade involving the shortstop at the GM/owners’ meeting in Orlando.
The Cardinals have shown significant interest in Tulowitzki and have also inquired about the availability of a shortstop from the Texas Rangers, who have Elvis Andrus and Jurickson Profar.
From The Denver Post: “According to those familiar with the Rockies’ thinking, however, there has been no shift in their thinking regarding Tulowitzki. The Rockies always field the call when teams inquire about a player. So, if the Cardinals were to make some crazy proposal — like including starter Michael Wacha, closer Trevor Rosenthal and first baseman Allen Craig in an offer — the Rockies would listen.
“But there are no indications that the Cardinals will move any of those players, let alone all three. And a package of pitcher Carlos Martinez, first baseman Matt Adams and infielder Kolten Wong wouldn’t come close to getting the talks percolating.”
However, the Rockies have talked to a couple of teams about trading center fielder Dexter Fowler.
