After dealing their star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Rockies are reportedly looking to trade Carlos Gonzalez in what would seem to be another move in the apparent initiation of a rebuild.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS, teams around the league have been made aware of the availability of the Rockies' star outfielder. CarGo's value has got to be pretty high right now considering his play of late, and the Rockies could get a nice return for a player who they probably don't need now that Tulo is gone and the window of contention has likely been pushed beyond the length of his contract.

Gonzalez is a free agent after the 2017 season and will make $43 million over the remainder of his deal. Heyman lists the Angels, Mets, and Orioles as possible trade partners, as all three are in need of an offensively-gifted outfielder. Regardless of who may be interested, Hayman quotes one unnamed GM who said of the situation, "They [the Rockies] expect to move him."

Buckle your seat belts, we could be in for an even crazier deadline.
