Troy Tulowitzki is out of tonight’s lineup against the Dodgers after he suffered a left shoulder strain yesterday on an awkward slide into home plate.

While it was easy to think the worst given Tulowitzki’s lengthy injury history, fortunately this injury appears to be minor. According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post writes that the 28-year-old shortstop is “doing well” and might hit today. Assuming he doesn’t feel any lingering pain, he could return to the lineup as soon as tomorrow or Wednesday.

Tulowitzki is hitting .308/.394/.603 with six home runs, 22 RBI and a .996 OPS over 24 games this season for the surprising Rockies. He was limited to just 47 games last season due to a groin injury and hasn’t played more than 143 games in a season since 2009.

    50-50 shot he ends up on the DL.

    “He was limited to just 47 games last season due to a groin injury and hasn’t played more than 143 games in a season since 2009.”

    Maybe if he wasn’t always carrying such a heavy wallet he wouldn’t be wearing out.

    There should be a book written called ‘TT on the DL: How to trick people into thinking you actually spend some time on the 25 man roster.’
