Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is sitting out tonight’s game against the Rays due to “heavy legs” — his terminology. Weiss described Tulowitzki’s night off as “precautionary”.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post has more:

Tulowitzki was running the bases and doing outfield sprints with Rockies trainer Keith Dugger on Friday afternoon. Tulowitzki, who has a history of leg and groin injuries, said he was not injured. Instead, he said was trying to work out some soreness in his legs.

Tulowitzki missed most of the 2012 season due to a groin injury which required surgery. He is having quite the rebound as he currently has a .317 average with six home runs and a 1.014 OPS with his trademark great defense.

      Players who punish their bodies and try to play though any injury are revered–and their dedication certainly is admirable. However, those who manage their own health carefully are more valuable to the team in the long run.

        “He’s a wuss.”

        You’re a moron.

    Tulo doesn’t take care of himself. Heavy legs at his age? Ok buddy. Sounds like a night out after a day off. Guy in his prime shouldn’t have minor hang ups if he is taking care of his body.

      My thinking exactly. Perhaps MLB should look into recruiting younger players for the bigs, I’m thinking 14-15 year olds. Look at all the stupid antics they pull and come out unscathed. Just last week the news showed a video of a kid going head-over on a motobike, did a sumersault and after dusting himself off, returned to the bike. That’s the durability I’m looking for.

      Let’s play “Drawing Subjective Conclusions.” You’re up first! Oop, looks like you already went.

    Lost a lot respect for this guy last year. I don’t understand the people supporting him on this site. I’m guessing they do not know his history.
