Update: Troy Renck, who covers the Rockies for the Denver Post counters this report. He just tweeted that, based on his conversations with Tulowitzki, Tulo is not done. He’s currently four and a half weeks out of surgery with an estimated recovery time of eight weeks.
Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, originally expected to be out six or eight weeks after groin surgery in late June, could miss the remainder of the season, people familiar with the situation say.
While Tulowitzki could possibly be ready to play late in the year, the Rockies have vowed not to push it, considering they are a non-contender and he is a foundation player. The club understands it may be a lost year for Tulo.
At 17 and a half games back, the Rockies season is toast anyway, so no sense in rushing him back. If his season is over, it ends at .287/.360/.486 with eight homers and 27 RBI in 47 games.
