Big story here from Joel Sherman of the New York Post …

One of the most vital moments of this season will occur Thursday at a breakfast meeting in Los Angeles between Troy Tulowitzki and his longtime agent, Paul Cohen.

The two will decide whether it is time to ask Rockies management for a trade.

“To say that it is not a possibility would be silly,” Cohen told The Post by phone.

Tulo hinted pretty loudly last year that he wanted out of Colorado, and the Rockies again look like a non-contender.

So it sounds like the volume might be ready to pick up from the star shortstop’s camp.

In a followup, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says the Rockies are not ready to talk about a Tulowitzki trade and are instead searching for pitching that would come at a “low acquisition cost.” Good luck with that.

Tulowitzki began the 2015 season with six years and $118 million left on his contract.

The 30-year-old is batting .307/.317/.495 with two homers and 10 RBI in 28 games.

Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke continued to swing a good stick, belting his third homer of the season on Monday night against the Dodgers. With the game tied 3-3 in the second inning, Greinke lined a 1-1 Clayton Kershaw fastball over the fence in left field for a solo homer.

Greinke is the third pitcher to homer off of Kershaw, joining Madison Bumgarner and Tyson Ross. He’s No. 4 if you count Brandon Woodruff‘s home run in Game 1 of the NLCS last year. Greinke now has three homers on the season, setting a career-high. He’s batting .314/.351/.686 with six RBI, seven runs scored, and a stolen base along with the trio of dingers. Absurd numbers from a pitcher.
