Mets Rumors: Troy Tulowitzki Trade to Mets Not Happening
Many have speculated like Jon Heyman of CBS Sports that the Mets and Rockies were in talks for a deal involving superstar shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, but according to Rockies GM Troy Renck it's not happening.
Reasons why the Mets and Rockies can't get together on a trade for Tulowitzki are that the Mets are uncertain about the his health and the $118 Million dollars that is owed to him.
Plus that, the Mets would have to give up a boatload of minor league talent including the likes of Noah Syndergaard, Kevin Plawecki, Rafael Montero, and others for the Rockies face of their franchise.
Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports had said that there was a 5%-10% chance of anything happening because of all the reasons above.
Given all the information from reports, the Mets could revisit the situation during spring training after the Mets see that Tulowitzki is fit to play the position, but that is even a stretch.
The Mets right now going forward are looking for Wilmer Flores to carry the load at shortstop and will look to sign a stopgap free agent like Everth Cabrera or Stephen Drew on a one year deal to back him up at the position.
Everything else involving something big remains slim to none....
