Troy Tulowitzki Insists He's Healthy

Jan 24, 2015 10:03 PM

Troy Tulowitzki insists he is healthy and can stay that way for an entire season, according to an ESPN.com report.

The Rockies' often-injured, veteran shortstop realizes everyone is wary of such talk. So, he took a different path when asked about the status of his surgically repaired hip.

"Honestly, I can say I feel as good as new," Tulowitzki said Saturday at Rockiesfest at Coors Field. "But at the same time, no one is going to believe me until they see me go out and see me play. Come to spring training, watch me play and then make your opinion."

Rockies Getting Calls About Drew Stubbs

Jan 9, 2015 8:31 AM

Drew Stubbs, who is in his final season of arbitration, could be a valuable asset on the trade market.

The outfielder is in line to make around $5.7 million this season, according to estimates.

"In general, there has been interest in Drew from teams looking for very specific fits in their outfield," general manager Jeff Bridich said recently. "Teams see him as a fit, but he's a fit for us as well."

With no control over his future, Stubbs is simply hoping for as much playing time as possible.

"This club, not only in the outfield, but in a lot of aspects, has a lot of decisions to make this offseason," Stubbs said. "But the nucleus of players we have here is good, and can compete and vie for a division title if everybody stays on the field.

"[Trades] are completely out of my hands. If I'm here in the future, that's great. Hopefully, I'll get to stay here for a while, because I've enjoyed playing in Denver. But at the same time, it's a business and they've got to make the best decisions for the team."

The New York Yankees checked in with the Colorado Rockies about the asking price for Troy Tulowitzki recently.

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."
