It looks like the Rockies will be getting their star shortstop back very soon. Troy Tulowitzki, who has been on the disabled list since June 18 with a fractured right wrist, fielded ground balls and took some light batting practice before yesterday’s game against the Reds.
Rockies manager Jim Tracy told Jim Armstrong of the Denver Post that Tulowitzki could go out on a minor league rehab assignment as soon as next week.
“He’s making wonderful progress,” said Tracy. “By Sunday, we’ll see
where he’s at, if he needs to be with us for additional time vs.
starting to contemplate the possibility of going out on a rehab
assignment. He’s moving forward. We’ll see where he’s at toward the end
of the weekend.”
The Rockies have actually gone 15-8 since he last played, but the return of Tulowitzki will obviously be quite a boost for a team that is making a serious charge in the National League West. Tulowitzki was batting .306/.375/.502 with nine homers, 34 RBI, 47 runs scored and seven stolen bases before going on the disabled list.
