The pessimist would note that Tulowitzki has only exceeded 125 games once since 2009 and has a history of going out for periods of time.  In fact, he’s already played more than half the games he did all last year, when he was sidelined with a groin injury that never healed after being sidelined in May. Tulowitzki is leading shortstops with a .610 slugging percentage, to include 6 HR and 22 RBI for the surprising first place Colorado Rockies.  At the age of 28, many fans are calling for him to move to a less physically demanding defensive position, although few if any of his injuries could be attributed to the range required to play shortstop. The Rockies consider their franchise player day-to-day and the injury will be reevaluated on Monday. -Dave (@lhd_on_sports) Follows us on Twitter @rbts_baseball The post Troy Tulowitzki exits game with shoulder strain appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
