Why the Rockies Must Trade Troy Tulowitzki

The race is on – for the Rockies to trade Troy Tulowitzki before his next major injury. Colorado's shortstop has hit the disabled list with thigh, thumb, wrist, groin, trunk and hip injuries during his career, and with more than 35 issues listed, the phrase "no longer being updated" appears in red on his player page at Baseball Prospectus. With financial red ink being the larger concern – Tulowitzki is making $20 million this year and is owed $98 million from 2016 through 2020 – rookie general manager Jeff Bridich would be wise to deal his one-time franchise player for whatever he can, as quickly he can. Wait for a market to develop any more than it has and risk having a potential deal blow up in your face.
