Here's something you weren't expecting to read: The Colorado Rockies have traded Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and prospects. Ken Rosenthal has reported all of that so far tonight. At the moment, there aren't any specifics about the prospects heading to the Rockies in the deal.

Tulowitzki has been one of the best shortstops—if not overall players—in the game for quite some time. He got off to a slow start this year, but he's hitting .305/.353/.478 this year with a 111 wRC+. That's not quite up to his career standards, but it's very good for a shortstops.

Reyes has hit .285/.322/.385 for the Blue Jays this year. Of course, he spent nine seasons with the Mets before hitting free agency and signing with the Miami Marlins before the 2012 season. After that season, Miami sent him to the Blue Jays, where he's been ever since.

And last but not least, Hawkins, who is now 42 year old, spent the 2013 season with the Mets and was one of the team's best relief pitchers. He signed a two-year deal with the Rockies following that season. This year, he has a 3.63 ERA and 3.56 FIP in 22.1 innings.
