Troy Tulowitzki ahead of schedule, could return this month

Jul 13, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

Troy Tulowitzki was initially given a six-week recovery timetable after an Alex Burnett fastball broke his left wrist on June 17, but the All-Star shortstop said yesterday that he’s ahead of schedule and could return as soon as two weeks from now.
Tulowitzki has been throwing and fielding ground balls for two weeks already and is expected to take batting practice during the Rockies’ upcoming road trip to Cincinnati, after which he could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment.
Tulowitzki was having a great season before the injury, playing his usual stellar defense and hitting .306/.375/.502 to rank second among all shortstops in OPS, but the Rockies have surprisingly gone 15-7 since he went down to move into a tie with the Dodgers for the Wild Card spot with Clint Barmes sliding to shortstop and Jonathan Herrera replacing him at second base.

    Two weeks from today is July 27, which would be five weeks and five days from his injury. That’s not a ton ahead of schedule, is it?
