SOURCE: Rockies Nearing 10 Year Extension With SS Troy Tulowitzki

New, 2 comments

Keith Law of ESPN.com is reporting that the Colorado Rockies and All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki are nearing agreement on a 10-year contract extension.

Tulowitzki, already signed to a team-friendly contract through 2013, with a $15 million club option for 2014. These negotiations come on the heels of a historic season by the 25 year old shortstop, where he was named to his first ever All-Star game, earned his first ever Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards, and placed fifth in the NL MVP voting. In September, after returning from a six week wrist injury, Tulowitzki almost single-handedly kept the Rockies in playoff contention, setting an NL record for home runs and RBI in a single month, smashing 15 HR and 40 RBI.

Though no details have been formally announced, the 10 year extension would likely take place over the current contract and begin in 2011, running through the 2020 season.
