Rockies-tulowitzki-hits
The Colorado Rockies were without Troy Tulowitzki during yesterday’s weekend finale against the Miami Marlins, as manager Walt Weiss told reporters – including Steve Dorsey of MLB.com – that he was resting the shortstop after he experienced soreness in his left side during Saturday’s contest. While the discomfort was enough to keep Tulowitzki out of the Rockies’ lineup, Weiss said the All-Star is “OK.” "He's OK. He's a little sore," Weiss said of the Rockies' shortstop. "He felt something in his side last night. He talked me into letting him hit that last time up. I was planning on pinch-hitting for him there. He's a little sore today, so we're going to keep him down today. I wouldn't say it's an oblique, but it's in that area." The Rockies’ offense has been hampered by injuries throughout the season, as several key players have been limited. Tulowitzki has been one of them, as he’s missed over 30 games this season. When he has been healthy enough to suit up, Tulowitzki has posted MVP-like numbers, hitting .315/.386/.568 with 23 doubles and 22 home runs over 399 plate appearances. In addition to Tulowitzki, Weiss offered updates on a pair of other ailing players, Yorvit Torrealba and Tyler Chatwood. Weiss said that he doesn’t believe Torrealba will be activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list when he’s eligible today. The skipper said that he expects Chatwood to begin his rehab assignment this week. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
