Tulowitzki Focusing On Rehab Despite Trade Rumors

Dec 22, 2014 12:13 AM

Keeping up with the free-agent and trade activity is secondary to getting healthy for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, even though he is the subject of prominent rumors.

"I'm keeping up but I'm not worrying about it," Tulowitzki said from his Las Vegas home Sunday night. "I'm just doing my rehab and want to get back on the field. That's my main focus."

Reports that the Mets will trade for Tulowitzki have circulated since before the July non-waiver trade deadline.

Mets Sign Cuddyer To Two-Year Deal

Nov 10, 2014 4:52 PM

The New York Mets have signed Michael Cuddyer to a two-year contract.

Cuddyer, 35, will earn $21 million in the deal -- $8.5 million in 2015 and $12.5 million in 2016, according to a source.

The Colorado Rockies had issued Cuddyer a qualifying offer, meaning New York will have a surrender a draft pick for signing the slugger.

"Michael is a tremendous addition to the middle of our lineup," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said in a statement. "He is a proven offensive threat who also brings versatility in the field with the ability to play multiple positions."

Asking Price For Tulowitzki Likely Sky-High

Nov 10, 2014 8:29 AM

Reports have indicated that the Colorado Rockies are finally willing to listen to trade offers for stars Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.

Listening to offers and completing a trade are two different things. Tulowitzki, who has had issues remaining on the field, is owed $20 million per year until 2019. The shortstop is also on the books for $14 million in 2020 with either a $15 million option for $4 million buyout in 2021.

The Rockies are expected to value Tulowitzki high, reflecting when he is 100% healthy. That puts the asking price extremely high.
