The Mets have talked to the Rockies about a trade involving shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources told Yahoo Sports. However, the fear is the Mets can't afford acquiring Tulowitzki, but the two sides are still talking.
CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms the two sides aren't engaged in significant talks at this juncture.
The Mets announced Monday they signed Tulowitzki's former Rockies teammate, Michael Cuddyer. The Mets gave up a 2015 first-round pick to sign Cuddyer, who turned down a one-year qualifying offer from the Rockies.
The oft-injured Tulowitzki played just 91 games in 2014 for the Rockies, but hit .340 with a .630 slugging percentage and 1.035 OPS. He has a career .299/.373/.517/.891 slash line. Although, his career splits at hitter-friendly Coors Field (.323/.565/.962) are much better than his road numbers (.274/.469/.818).
