Mets Rumors: New York still considering trade for Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki

The New York Mets remain intrigued by Colorado Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, despite numerous reports indicating that such a deal could be extremely difficult to pull off.

Per Mike Puma of the New York Post, "Troy Tulowitzki remains on the Mets’ radar for a would-be blockbuster swap, according to a person with knowledge of trade discussions that have involved the Rockies’ All-Star shortstop."

As Puma reports, the two teams had fleshed out potential parameters for such a deal at the recent MLB winter meetings, with little to no actual progress having been made.

The source cited by Puma "cautioned it’s an extreme longshot the Mets and Rockies will find common ground that would bring Tulowitzki, who is coming off hip surgery and still owed $106 million, to Flushing."

While the Mets have shown willingness to play ball when it comes to packaging some of their most coveted prospects in such a trade, the money owed to Tulowitzki coupled with his recent injury history could be a deal-breaker.
