The agent of Troy Tulowitzki told the New York Post that his client is considering asking the Rockies to be traded.
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that the Rockies are not ready to discuss a trade involving the shortstop. He said Colorado is currently looking to make a low cost acquisition to get pitching help.
Tulowitzki and his agent, Paul Cohen, will meet Thursday to decide whether to request a trade, according to the Post.
"To say that it is not a possibility would be silly," Cohen told The Post.
Cohen also told The Post that he spent a "tremendous amount of time" talking about a potential trade with Tulowitzki last off-season. The Post reports that the 30-year-old is frustrated with Colorado's four straight losing seasons.
Tulowitzki has been with the Rockies for his entire 10-year career. He's hitting .307 with two home runs and 10 RBIs through 28 games this season.
