According to Jim Armstrong of the Denver Post, Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has begun traveling with the Rockies and plans to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point this week. First, he wants to fit in a few more rounds of batting practice.
Tulo was placed on the disabled list on June 18 after breaking his left wrist. If he continues to make steady progress, a return on the early side of his six-to-eight week timetable seems likely.
“I feel good,” the shortstop said Sunday. “Each and every day, I get a little
more excited that I’m that much closer. I’m definitely moving in that
direction and happy with my progress.”
Tulowitzki, 25, was batting .306/.375/.502 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 235 at-bats before the injury. His Rockies, as it stands, are four games behind the Padres in the race for the National League West and a half-game behind the Cardinals for the Wild Card.
