The New York Mets have inquired about Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.
The Rockies have said that they don't want to trade either player. The Rockies have the worst record in the National League and have lost seven of their last 10 games.
Gonzalez is batting .250 with nine home runs and 34 RBI this season.
Tulowitzki, who is currently on the disabled list with a hip flexor strain, leads the majors in batting average, on-base percentage, and OPS. He has five years and $104 million left on his contract.
More from the New York Post:
But keep in mind Tulowitzki has indicated he has become frustrated playing his prime mainly in non-contention. And there is belief if he were to request a trade, ownership would strongly consider fulfilling his wishes. However, Tulowitzki has a no-trade provision, wears No. 2 in honor of Derek Jeter and is thought to be considerably more interested in being a Yankee than a Met. And Colorado already has expressed interest to the Yankees in their top pitching prospect, Luis Severino.
