Troy Tulowitzki was traded from the Colorado Rockies to Toronto, which did not make him happy.
Relations soured between Tulo and the Rockies (primarily then-GM Jeff Bridich) when they traded him to Toronto at the trade deadline in July 2015.
He ended up last playing in the majors in 2019 with the Yankees after extensive injuries throughout his career, both with the Rockies and after. He had a career 44.5 rWAR and 39.5 of that came with the Rockies.
Some of the players that were drafted after Tulo in the first round include:
- Outfielder Andrew McCutchen, 11th overall pick, Pirates (2013 NL MVP, three more top 5 NL MVP finishes, five-time All-Star, four-time Silver Slugger winner, Gold Glove winner, 46.5 rWAR).
- Outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, 23rd overall pick, Red Sox (one-time All-Star, Gold Glove winner, Silver Slugger winner, 31.2 rWAR)
- Pitcher Clay Buchholz, 42nd overall pick, Red Sox (two-time All-Star, 16.7 rWAR)
The Rockies had another first-round pick, as they had a comp pick for losing Vinny Castilla in free agency. With the 32nd overall pick, they drafted pitcher Chaz Roe.
Roe never made it to the majors with the Rockies as they traded him to Seattle after the 2010 season for infielder José Lopez but Roe has spent parts of nine seasons in the majors with 245 relief appearances.
