DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado Rockies have traded shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, according to the Associated Press.
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Tulo is headed to the Toronto Blue Jays. CBS4’s Vic Lombardi reports that relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins is part of the trade, and other reports say the Rockies will get Jose Reyes, possibly Miguel Castro and minor league players.
The Rockies pulled Tulowitzki in the ninth inning of their Tuesday night loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field possibly due to the trade, according to Lombardi. Tulowitzki was 0 for 5 with an RBI in the Rockies 9-8 loss.
Up until this week, Tulowitzki had spent his entire professional career in Colorado.
He was drafted in 2005, and made his debut in August 2006 against the New York Mets.
