Troy Tulowitzki flew to Philadelphia to be examined by the doctor who performed his groin surgery on June 21 and has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Tulowitzki will likely begin playing at Double-A this weekend, although nothing is official yet. He hasn’t seen game action since May 30, but fielded ground balls and took batting practice with the Rockies recently without any issues.

His return won’t do much for the Rockies beyond helping them avoid 100 losses, but finishing the season strong and heading into the offseason healthy would be a nice way to end a rough year for everyone involved.

    Shut him down for the year. It’s silly to re-risk injury for a team that’s going to lose 100 games
