Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was out of the lineup last night against the Tampa Bay Rays due to what the club is calling “heavy legs,” according to Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post. The decision was made to sit Tulowitzki when the All-Star was running the bases and doing outfield sprints with trainer Keith Dugger yesterday afternoon. While he didn’t sustain an injury during the session, Tulowitzki later told reporters that he is still trying to work out soreness in his legs. "My legs are a little heavy, so I was just out here doing some running," Tulowitzki said. The move was precautionary – according to manager Walt Weiss – and Tulowitzki isn’t expected to miss more than one game as a result. "With Tulo, it's just some general leg soreness, so I wanted to keep him out of there tonight," Weiss said. "It's one of those precautionary things. There was some general soreness in his legs and that general (groin) area. It's nothing major, but I thought it made sense to lay low for tonight." Tulowitzki wasn’t showing signs of being slowed due to the leg issue, as he went 6-for-15 with three doubles and seven RBI on the team’s recent seven-game road trip. On the season, he’s hitting .317 with a team-leading 24 RBI. Jonathan Herrera replaced Tulowitzki at short. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
