Troy Tulowitzki will undergo labral repair surgery on his left hip Friday in Vail, Colorado and will miss the rest of season.
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
Addison Russell was 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Sunday.
Top prospect Addison Russell had his timetable to the majors sped up this season with the Cubs and has responded admirably. Russell has played 87 games with 33 runs, seven home runs, 27 RBI and two stolen bases with a .237 average. Signs point to a better year in 2016 but for this year, Russell will put up stats but is a batting average risk. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Adam Morgan tossed five innings in Sunday’s 6-2 loss to the Braves, surrendering four runs on seven hits and three walks while recording just one strikeout.
After holding the struggling Braves scoreless over the first four frames of Sundays outing, Morgan ran into big trouble in the fifth. The young lefty did finish out the inning, but not before being tagged for four runs. Morgans first two starts in the bigs, which came on June 21st and July 3rd respectively, were impressive and left some fantasy players feeling that he could become a deep-league option for the second half, especially in N.L.-only formats. However, over his last five turns in the Phillies rotation Morgan has provided a mixed bag of results. ultimately pitching to a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 3.5 K/9 across 25 2/3 innings. He is expected to be back on the bump Saturday night in San Diego. Analysis: Nate Miller
