Troy Tulowitzki SS COL 2 days ago

Tulowitzki went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Tulowitzki's fantasy owners were bracing for the worst when he missed two games over the weekend with a quadriceps injury, but for the moment, it appears the ailment was only a minor concern, as he's been able to play a full nine innings the last two days. The shortstop has always been one of the league's best offensive talents when healthy enough to suit up, but his production has been curiously AWOL this season. Though he's batting a credible .285, Tulowitzki has just two homers and has only walked three times across 128 plate appearances. Moreover, he's also striking out 22.7 percent of the time, a mark almost seven points above his career norm. This could be the beginning of the decline phase for Tulowitzki, who will turn 31 in October.

Tulowitzki (quad) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

The Rockies will exercise caution by holding Tulowitzki out an additional day, giving the start at shortstop to Daniel Descalso instead. Based on manager Walt Weiss's assessment following Saturday's game, Tulo could be available to pinch hit. If he doesn't appear, consider him day-to-day in advance of Monday's series opener against the Phillies.

While Tulowitzki (quad) will not start Saturday, manager Walt Weiss said Tulowitzki was feeling better than Weiss expected him to be, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

An injured Tulowitzki is never a good thing for fantasy owners, but Weiss seemed encouraged about Tulowitzki's status, and noted that Tulowitzki could pinch-hit Saturday in an emergency. It's a long shot that Tulowitzki will play in Saturday's game, but it seems there is a chance he could return to action Sunday.

Tulowitzki, who exited Friday's game against the Dodgers with a tight left quad, indicated afterward that he doesn't believe the injury is a serious issue, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Tulowitzki suffered the injury while running out a groundout during his third-inning at-bat. The shortstop said it's the first time this season he experienced an issue with the quad, and that he agreed to come out of the game as a precaution to avoid worsening the ailment. Given that Tulowitzki has missed 222 games over the last three seasons and isn't foreign to leg injuries, there's a good chance he'll sit out Saturday's game, which would open up a start for Daniel Descalso.
