The Rockies got a little scare from shortstop Troy Tulowitzki on Thursday in camp.

The 26-year-old was lifted prematurely from the Rockies’ Grapefruit League game against the Giants after nailing his right heel with the tip of his bat on a hard third-strike swing. A trainer met him just outside the batter’s box and he headed to the clubhouse for further examination.

That further examination didn’t take long.

Tulowitzki was diagnosed quickly with only a bruised heel, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, and is expected to be just fine after a couple days of rest. He was already scheduled to skip Friday’s road game against the Indians along with a handful of other Rockies regulars. Look for him to return at some point this weekend or, at the latest, early next week.

    Tulo hurt again. What a surprise. He seems destined to follow the injury path of Nomar Garciaparra.

      Apropos of nothing; how hard is it to have to type Tulowitzki and Garciaparra in one sentence? Never mind. I’ve answered my own question; very.
