Troy Tulowitzki to return by mid-August?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:05 pm ET) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who underwent a dry needling procedure Monday for his injured left hip flexor, said he will get back to movement activities Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

It is believed Tulowitzki might be back by the middle of August, but for now he is taking his recovery day to day.

"It wasn't an easy process -- a tough day for me," Tulowitzki said in a telephone interview Tuesday morning. "But I feel all right. The plan is to get back to starting movement, see how it feels.

"(Wednesday) I'll start moving around and doing some stuff. I'll be jogging and walking a little bit -- obviously, it's not baseball activity, just getting moving to see how I feel."


Report: Rockies evaluating players from three teams


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) While it seems unlikely the Rockies will trade shortstop Troy Tulowitzki by Thursday's non-waiver deadline, MLB.com reports the team spent much of Monday evaluating major-league players and prospects from the Mets' organization. New York has been a team linked to Tulowitzki rumors in the last week.

MLB.com also reports the Rockies spent time evaluating players within the Cardinals and Angels organizations. They are considered two teams with money and major-league-ready players that would intrigue the Rockies' front office, if they were to inquire about a trade.


Jordy Mercer emerging as option to bat second vs. LHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:06 am ET) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer was slotted second in the batting order Monday against the Giants for the third time this season and second time in three games.

Mercer has become an option to hit second when a left-handed starter is on the hill, as was the case Monday with Giants hurler Madison Bumgarner.

"I think he gives us, against left-handed pitching, probably the best dynamic in that spot right now," manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "From last season into this season, he’s been one of our better hitters against left-handed pitching. He’s a guy we’ve used to play some small ball with, a guy who’s shown an ability to barrel the ball. He’s leading the team in RBIs against left-handed pitching in probably less at-bats than the other guys had."

Mercer is batting .319 with a .351 on-base percentage, .458 slugging percentage and .809 OPS in 40 games against lefties this season.

Source: Unlikely Troy Tulowitzki gets dealt this week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) The chances of Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki getting dealt before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline appear to be very slim, according to SBNation.com.

Mets could deal Noah Syndergaard to land Troy Tulowitzki


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) The Mets could be willing to give up premier pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard in an attempt to land stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki from the Rockies, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Tulowitzki,, however, is dealing with an injured hip that could prove problematic in any trade talks. He still owns a sensational stat line of .340/.432/.603, though the differences in his home-away splits are significant. He's batting .417 at home with 14 home runs and 35 RBI. He's at .257/7/17 on the road.
