Troy Tulowitzki looks good in first batting practice session since suffering hip flexor strain

Aug 6, 2014, 8:44 PM EDT

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is finally making progress in his recovery from a left hip flexor strain. Nick Groke of the Denver Post shared the positive news on Twitter …

Tulowitzki has been on the disabled list since July 20 with what was originally called a left quadriceps cramp. He paid a visit to a sports hernia surgeon last week in Philadelphia and apparently got a good report.

The star 29-year-old looked to be on the way to his first National League MVP award before suffering the hip injury, batting .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs, 52 RBI, and 71 runs scored through 91 games played.

      The Yanks system can’t tug out what it takes to get him. So keep dreaming.

    Pay attention to some of the young Yankee pitchers and you will see what they have to offer.
