Report: Rockies unlikely to trade Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez to Mets
Though the New York Mets had inquired about trading for Rockies players Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez prior to the non-waiver trading deadline, Jon Heyman of CBSSports reports if a deal happens, it likely won't occur until after the season.
According to Heyman, there likely isn't enough time for the trade to take place before Thursday at 4 p.m. ET.
"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the limited talks said.
The report also says that the Mets' target will likely just be Gonzalez because Tulowitzki "wants to be a Yankee," according to one of Heyman's Mets sources.
The shortstop is currently on the disabled list with a hip flexor strain, and had a "dry needling" procedure done Monday to help speed the recovery process.
Tulowitzki has five years and $104 million left on his contract.
