Latest Update Rockies transfer INF Troy Tulowitzki from 15-day DL to 60-day DL. Tue Aug, 19, 08:21 PM
The whole package at shortstop: has a fantastic glove and range, a great arm, a power bat, the stroke to hit for a high average, excellent patience and the ability to steal a bag. Is also a leader.
Flaws: : Tends to start seasons slowly and needs to find his groove--making him somewhat too streaky. Strikes out too much and could also stand to be more efficient as a base-stealer.
Tulowitzki's placement on the 60-day DL opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Rockies.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Fantasy owners who thought they would get one of those patented Tulowitzki Septembers got a huge slap in the face with reality as the star shortstop has been told that surgery is the recommended course of action and he is done for the year. This year looked as if he would be primed and ready for a phenomenal season, batting ,340 with 21 home runs, but injuries derailed things once again and while his overall production numbers were first-rate for a shortstop., the unfinished job is leaving a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.Analyst: Howard Bender
Reports are that Tulo continues to have discomfort in his hip. Given the fact that he has yet to begin a rehab assignment nor have the Rockies eluded to any timetable for his return it is possible that Tulo might miss the entire month of August. His visit on Wednesday will go a long way in deciding Tulo's availability going forward.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
What was initially thought to be a minor issue has snowballed into an injury that could end up costing Tulo most of the second half. He was well on his way to capturing his first MVP award, but the hip injury has all but eliminated the uber-shortstop from the running. He hasn't run since hitting the DL in late-July, so that would be the first indication of an impending comeback. Analyst: Spencer Silva
