Troy Tulowitzki has been out for nearly three months with a groin injury that required surgery and the only thing the Rockies have left to play for is avoiding 100 losses, but the shortstop is still working his way back from the disabled list.
Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Tulowitzki took batting practice and fielded ground balls yesterday with the team in New York and will be examined by a specialist Wednesday to determine his next step.
If all goes well he could be cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend, although presumably the Rockies won’t be rushing him back after just a few games.
Before being shut down in late May he hit .287 with eight homers and an .846 OPS in 47 games, essentially matching his overall career numbers.
