The Rockies are already without Carlos Gonzalez, Michael Cuddyer, and Nolan Arenado in their lineup, but now they might have to do without their star shortstop for a little while too, as Troy Tulowitzki was forced to exit last night’s game against the Giants with a right toe injury.

Tulowitzki came up hobbling as he was running up the first base line on a leadoff single in the top of the ninth inning. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative on the third metatarsal on his right foot and Rockies manager Walt Weiss said after the game that the early diagnosis is a “sprained toe.” It’s unclear how long he’ll be sidelined.

Tulowitzki has been the game’s best player so far this season, batting .356/.449/.662 with 17 home runs and 43 RBI over over 64 games while playing quality defense at shortstop. It would be a shame to see another injury get in the way of him playing a full season. The 29-year-old hasn’t played more than 143 games in a season since 2009.

    Sounds like “I’ve got the sign” might need a toe truck.
