Troy Tulowitzki SS COL 7 Hrs

Troy Tulowitzki had a huge day at the plate on Friday against the Phillies, going 3-for-3 with a home run, five RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.

Tulo terrorized the Phillies on Friday, delivering a three-run homer in the second inning, an RBI double in the fourth, and an RBI single in the sixth. Oh, and he also drew a 14-pitch walk against Jonathan Pettibone in a four-run first inning. The veteran shortstop is hitting .360 (18-for-50) with eight extra-base hits (two home runs), 11 RBI, and a .460 on-base percentage through 16 games. It goes without saying, but he's a fantasy monster when healthy.

Troy Tulowitzki is in Tuesday's lineup even though he's dealing with a "slight pull" of his right quadriceps muscle.

Tulo had to exit Monday's game early with the injury after going 3-for-3 with a double and solo home run. He's back in there Tuesday, but with his history of leg injuries he'll be monitored closely. "My leg is a little tight, and I think it's just fatigued after playing some games and making a lot of early plays," Tulowitzki said.

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-3 with a double and solo home run as the Rockies defeated the White Sox 8-1 on Monday.

He also walked and scored a pair of runs. Since going 0-for-4 on Opening Day, Tulo has hit safely in six straight games and drawn a walk in five straight. In between all that raking, the stud shortstop was given a mandatory day off on Saturday. The Rockies don't figure to give him many more breathers going forward.

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-3 with a solo home run as the Rockies defeated the Royals 8-2 on Monday.

Tulowitzki took Jeremy Guthrie deep in the second inning, his third blast of the spring. The shortstop is only hitting .160 in 25 at-bats, but he has been drawing walks and hitting for power otherwise, which should ease any concerns about his production.

Troy Tulowitzki went 0-for-3 against the Padres on Monday.

It was Tulowitzki's first game back since being hit in the leg by Wade Miley. He grounded into a double play, struck out, and flied out. The Rockies aren't concerned about the results, though; they are simply happy that he was well enough to play. Prior reports had indicated the shortstop might have needed to wait until Wednesday to return.

Troy Tulowitzki (calf, fibula) was able to take ground balls and do light running on Saturday.

Tulowitzki still feels fluid and inflammation in his calf, but is close to returning to Cactus League action. The oft-injured superstar shortstop shouldn't have any problem being ready for Opening Day, but is a strong candidate to hit the disabled list at some point during the season.
