Credit: AP/Al Behrman The first place Colorado Rockies are holding their breath at the moment, as two-time All Star SS Troy Tulowitzki left Sunday’s game with a strained left (non-throwing) shoulder, according to Thomas Harding at MLB.com.  The injury appeared to have occurred during a slide at home plate.  The optimist would note that he played two more innings before being removed. 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.
