DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies and Toronto Blue Jays have swapped star shortstops.
The teams confirmed the blockbuster trade Tuesday that sends Jose Reyes and right-handed pitchers Miguel Castro, Jeff Hoffman and Jesus Tinoco to the Rockies for Tulowitzki and right-handed reliever LaTroy Hawkins.
Both shortstops have remarkably similar career statistics but also a history of injuries.
Tulowitzki is a five-time All-Star and a career .299 hitter. He’s hitting .300 this season. At 32, the speedy Reyes is two years older than Tulowitzki. He’s a lifetime .291 hitter and is hitting .285 this season.
Reyes is signed through 2017. Tulowitzki’s contract runs through 2020.
