Tulowitzki will make his second straight start, serving as the DH and batting fifth, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tulowitzki returned to action Saturday after sitting out Friday with a calf injury, and he'll serve as the DH for the second straight game Sunday. Until he's ready to play the field, Ryan Goins, who is making his third straight start at shortstop Sunday, will continue to see reps.

Tulowitzki (calf) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians, batting fifth.

EDGE Analysis

After getting the night off Friday to rest a calf injury, Tulowitzki will make his return to the lineup Saturday. However, there is a chance his calf isn't quite 100 percent yet seeing as he'll be serving as Toronto's designated hitter. Regardless, his return adds a potent bat back to the middle of the Blue Jays' lineup.

Tulowitzki is out of the lineup Friday with a calf injury, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Something seemed off with Tulo being left out of the lineup following an off day, and manager John Gibbons later confirmed that the shortstop is battling calf soreness. The Blue Jays are listing him as day-to-day, but Tulowitzki's availability for the rest of the weekend is up in the air. Ryan Goins will get the nod in his absence.

Tulowitzki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

EDGE Analysis

A reason for Tulowitzki's absence was not immediately provided but something seems amiss, as the Blue Jays just had a day off Thursday. Tulowitzki has been on a roll of late, collecting nine hits (including a pair of home runs) in his last four games, boosting his line for the month to .340/.404/.532. Ryan Goins will fill in at shortstop Friday.

Tulowitzki went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs in Tuesday's 12-6 win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Tulowitzki was seeing the ball well all night, picking up two of Toronto's four hits against starter Michael Pineda before smashing an Anthony Swarzak offering over the fence in the sixth. He also got involved in the Blue Jays' eight-run eighth inning to complete a four-hit night. Health has always been the limiting factor for a power-hitting shortstop that has still managed .257/.325/.476 line in what has been a slightly disappointing campaign. He's heating up, though, with a pair of homers among his eight hits over the last three games.

Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with two runs scored, three RBI and his 20th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

He now has two homers and eight RBI in his last four games, although in keeping with Tulo's season to date he went 0-for-7 during the two games in which he didn't hit one out of the park. Despite his various injuries over the years, he's now popped 20 or more home runs in a season seven times in his career and Tulowitzki becomes the fourth Blue Jay to reach the mark in 2016, joining Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson and Michael Saunders.

EDGE Analysis

The shortstop went deep with two on and two out in the first inning, giving the Blue Jays an early lead. In the second, he walked with the bases loaded to record another RBI. Then in the sixth, Tulowitzki came through with a second two-out hit to drive in his fifth run. He is 7-for-23 (.304) with one extra-base hit, six RBI and three runs in August. For the season, Tulowitzki is hitting .248 with 19 bombs and 58 RBI.

Tulowitzki went 1-for-3 with an RBI, his 53rd of the season, in Friday's win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Tulowitzki had by far the best month of his season in July. A finger injury kept him out the first three contests of this month, but the veteran will hope for a better August than he had a year ago when he hit .214 with more strikeouts (28) than hits (22). Tulowitzki's unreliable nature this season has kept him in the bottom half of the batting order -- a place he's extremely unfamiliar hitting from. Over his past three seasons, 95 percent of the shortstop's at-bats came from hitting somewhere between leadoff and cleanup. This season, Tulowitzki's logged just nine of his 303 at-bats from within the top four slots.
