Troy Tulowitzki gets trade rumor updates from the Rockies


I’m always curious how much players know about trade rumors surrounding them and how they respond to them. Thomas Harding of checked in with Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, whose name continues to swirl around as being available for the right price:

I’m keeping up but I’m not worrying about it. I’m just doing my rehab and want to get back on the field. That’s my main focus. … You see what’s going on, but I think it’s smart to focus on my main issue–working on my rehab and getting back on the field. I just want to play and help win games.

Harding says Tulowitzki has checked in with Rockies officials 3-4 times because they “promised to keep him informed if there is any movement.”

And presumably he subscribes to the HardballTalk RSS feed and has NBC’s SportsTalk app on his phone.
