He’s been traded from the struggling Colorado Rockies, but the destination is a shocker — the Toronto Blue Jays. The trade hasn’t been confirmed by either team, but mutiple reporters, including Yahoo Sports’ Tim Brown , say it’s happening. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal was first to report the deal . Based on what’s been reported thus far, the return for the Rockies is veteran shortstop Jose Reyes, young fireballer Miguel Castro, top pitching prospect Jeff Hoffman and one more unnamed prospects. Relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins is also heading to the Blue Jays, filling another of their needs as they make a push toward the postseason.  [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] There’s a belief that Reyes, 32, could be flipped by the Rockies in another deal. He’s owed $22 million in each of the next two seasons and has a rough injury history. Not exactly a player to rebuild around.  Tulowitzki has voiced his desire for a trade in the past , saying numerous times that he’s tired of losing in Colorado. The New York Mets and New York Yankees had both been considered possible destinations for Tulo. The San Francisco Giants were one of his preferred teams, since he’s from the Bay Area. As for the Blue Jays, well, they weren’t on anybody’s radar.
