Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (hip) is working out but not doing any baseball related activities. Manager Walt Weiss said: "I'm encouraged that maybe it won't be as long as I thought..."
The rough estimate for his return is mid-August, but the fact that he's not doing anything baseball related right now makes it surprising that Weiss is speaking so confidently. The workouts are obviously the first step and he could start ramping up activities pretty quickly, but until you see that he is taking grounders in the infield and running the bases at full speed, you should probably hedge your expectations. We'll continue to update regularly here, but you may want to count on him coming back later in the month than sooner.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
