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
Roberto Osuna (back) is available out of the bullpen Monday.
Osuna was complaining about some lower back pain after coming on in relief Sunday, but says he will be available if needed. Osuna has been outstanding this year and could be the solution to the Blue Jays' closer issue. He owns a 2.02 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings and is in the top 30 of the majors in strikeout rate with a 43:10 K/BB ratio. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Dodgers transfer LHP Paco Rodriguez to the 60-day disabled list.
This move allows the Dodgers to bring up Eric Surkamp for tonight's bullpen game. Rodriguez, who last pitched for the Dodgers on May 29, will be out at least 8-10 weeks until September after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his left elbow. He pitched four scoreless innings in a recent rehab assignment but suffered a setback and will now be sidelined even longer than expected. He has a 2.61 ERA in 10 1/3 innings. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
