After rumors swirled Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was considering asking his team for a trade, many viewed the Yankees or the New York Mets as a potential landing spot. Unfortunately, it’s not happening.
The New York Daily News is reporting it’s highly unlikely Tulowitzi is swapped to either New York team. The Mets are still paying off the outrageous contract of David Wright, who has once again landed himself on the disabled list. The Yankees acquired both Didi Gregorius and Stephen Drew over the offseason to fill the hole that was left vacated after Derek Jeter retired and they don’t want to take on the six-years, $118 Million left in his contract.
The Rockies reportedly said they weren’t as willing to move Tulowitzki in a trade but if there was any chance for the Rockies, Yankees or Mets to work out a deal, it would have to take a dramatic change of internal options.
