In addition to Tulowitzki, the Rockies sent 42-year-old reliever LaTroy Hawkins to the Blue Jays.Along with Reyes, the Rockies picked up reliever Miguel Castro and two minor league pitchers.

Fox Sports first reported the teams had agreed to a trade involving Tulowitzki, Reyes and minor leaguers.

What the Blue Jays will be getting is both an offensive and defensive upgrade at one of the most important spots on the diamond.

Tulowitzki is owed $113.7 million through 2020, according to MLB.com, and would receive a $2 million bonus for being traded.

His contract also would convert to include a full no-trade clause from here on out, per Fox Sports.

Tulowitzki was in the manager's office in the visitors clubhouse after the Rockies' 9-8 walk-off loss to the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, according to

ESPNChicago.com's Jesse Rogers. At some point, Colorado manager Walt Weiss walked in as well.

Members of the media waited around in the locker room but were eventually made to leave and told by the Rockies' public relations staff that the trade was not official.
