Colorado Rockies' shortstop Troy Tulowitzki played in his first rehab came at Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday night, and although he had soreness on Tuesday, he expects to rejoin the Rockies soon. As reported by Ian McCue of MLB.com, "Tulowitzki, who took two at-bats and fielded several grounders with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday night, said he could tell when he woke up this morning that he had done more than just take swings in the cage. However, the pain he played through was no worse than predicted." ""Just being out there on the field is nice, and then to come out of it healthy and feeling good is even a bonus," Tulowitzki said. "There's some soreness -- I'm not going to lie and say it felt great. There's definitely some soreness, I could tell I hadn't been in games for awhile. But it was a step in the right direction."" Tulowitzki was 1 for 2 with a double and was swinging freely. He chose not to dive for a ground ball up the middle in attempts not to aggravate the broken rib.  He played the game with a protective rib pad, which he expects to use for the rest of the season. He was expected to get three at bats in Tuesday's game, or play 5 to 7 innings, whatever comes first. Tulowitzki, who is a 3 time All-Star and 2 time Gold Glove Award winner, played in only 47 games last year. He is a career .296 hitter with 146 home runs and 521 runs batted in. This season, Tulowitzki is batting .347 with 16 home runs and 51 rbi's in 61 games.
