Troy Tulowitzki hasn’t played since May 30 and it’s been three weeks since he was supposedly on the verge of rejoining the Rockies’ lineup, but the star shortstop still hasn’t given up on returning from groin surgery this season.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Tulowitzki will play an instructional league game Sunday, which is the only rehab game option left at this point because the minor league season ended already.

And from there? “Maybe I will play in one of the last two regular season games,” Tulowitzki said. “But I have to be smart. I might just stay in [the instructional league] and play more games down there.”

Sadly, considering how the past four months have gone for Tulowitzki and his rehab process the smart money would probably be on him not being in the Rockies’ lineup for those final two games.

    This is crazy. Why would he risk this?

    I hope he does play. I’ve missed him!

    Injuries suck. I would hold him out, hoping for next year. It must be maddening to know that you are one of the top 5 guys in the world at what you do, but that you can’t do it right now. Hopefully he is healthy next year.
