The Rockies are willing to listen to offers for Tulowitzki (hip), the Denver Post reports.
Nothing is imminent, but the Rockies are "keeping their eyes and ears open" for potential deals for their top starts, Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. Of the two, Gonzalez seems more likely to be traded, with the team surprisingly extending Michael Cuddyer a $15.3 million qualifying offer Monday. It does not appears Cuddyer would have a starting spot available unless a corner outfielder is moved this winter. Moreover, Gonzalez's contract is much more tradeable, as he's owed $53 million over the next three years, whereas Tulowitzki is owed $118 million through 2020 and would receive an additional $2 million assignment bonus if he's dealt. Tulowitzki's career OPS is over 140 points below his mark at Coors Field, and his health is a big question mark, but all that aside, there figures to be a couple teams that at least test the waters on a trade. He said Wednesday that his hip feels good and he is on schedule in his rehab.
