Troy Tulowitzki is a terrific two-way player at one of the most demanding positions in baseball, the position of shortstop. “Tulo” is a very productive offensive shortstop, who is one of the best power hitters at his position in all of baseball. He is also as solid as it gets on the defensive side of the game. Last June, Gibbons raved about Tulowitzki’s defence saying “If you eliminate anything he did with his bat, just on what he did defensively for us last year, he was worth it.” That just goes to show you, just alone what his defence has meant to the Toronto Blue Jays in his short time playing in the city.

Troy Tulowitzki 2016 Defensive Highlights
Tulowitzki is still a very productive offensive player, although he may not be the .300/.370/.520 hitter, he was in Colorado. He is still a huge middle of the order bat that any team would be lucky to have. Last year, Tulowitzki had a slash line of .254/.318/.443 and hit 24 home runs while driving in 79 runs in just 131 games played. Troy Tulowitzki is a terrific all around shortstop, and there is a lot more in the tank for him to put up even better offensive numbers in the 2017 baseball season.
