|Troy Tulowitzki out of Wednesday lineup|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is out of Wednesday's lineup, MLB.com reports.
The Rockies have said on record they want to go easy on Tulowitzki's legs. As such, it seems reasonable to expect they will have Tulowitzki sit most, if not all day games after night games, as Wednesday's tilt is.

(5/19/13) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who has started 35 of 43 games, is fine with not playing every day in an attempt to make sure he doesn't suffer a setback with his surgically repaired groin, according to The Denver Post.
"I am right there with them," Tulowitzki said. " I'd love to be out there every day, but at the same time I am not capable of it right now. Some of those days off make me better in the long run rather than continually wearing myself down. If I played (every day), I would be more (vulnerable) to injury. I am sure it's tough for people to understand. I totally get that. But it is what I have to do. The (training staff) has convinced me, and I have seen over the last couple of years that it's the way to handle it."
Tulowitzki had a big day Saturday against the Giants with a season-high four hits. He had a double, a run and two RBI. Tulowitzki is batting .392 (20 for 51) in 15 May games (13 starts), raising his season average from .308 to .341.

(5/15/13) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki managed three hits, including two doubles, during Tuesday's game against the Cubs. It was his fourth multi-hit game in May, but Tulowitzki entered play Tuesday mired in a 2-for-17 slump.
Despite the slide, Tulowitzki has managed to raise his batting average from .292 to .324 in his last 16 games thanks to a .370 average (17 for 46) in that span. Tulowitzki has two home runs, six doubles and 15 RBI in his last 16 games.

(5/13/13) The Rockies have been managing shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's left groin injury to the best of their ability, MLB.com reports. Colorado had kept Tulowitzki out of the lineup for three of the six games on their most recent homestand because of inflammation.
Although that decison can be unpopular, it appears to be helping Tulowitzki over the long haul. He's hitting .324 with eight homers and a team-leading 31 RBI.
"Every single day I've gotten better," Tulowitzki said. "It's kind of a marathon. As long as I'm there in September, that's the goal, not run myself into the ground. I've had a chance to catch up. I've felt better and better every single game. I'm excited about that. Instead of going out there being sore and being close to blowing out, I think we made the right decision."
The Rockies will continue to manage his injury, which means he'll sit out more regularly than he normally would. The shortstop is also learning to be more reserved in moments when the situation calls for it.
"We're always trying to work on different parts of the game, and that's it for me," he said. "I'm just trying to play within myself, not lunging too much. Maybe sometimes, when the game asks for 100 percent, I can only give it 80, but that's smart on my part, so I can be out there every single day."

(5/12/13) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki blasted a three-run homer in the third inning to end Colorado's scoreless streak at 28 innings during an 8-2 rout at St. Louis on Sunday. He finished 1 for 4 against the Cardinals with just his second hit over the past five games as his batting average has slipped to .324.
Tulowitzki's eighth homer of the season stopped the Rockies' scoreless streak two innings shy of the team record. They went 30 innings without a run from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3, 2010, according to STATS.
|Troy Tulowitzki has had struggles with staying healthy over his career, but health woes played a bigger role for him than usual in 2012. He missed the last four months of the season due to a groin injury and subsequent surgery, so Tulowitzki's season ended after only 47 games. For the portion of the schedule he did play, Tulowitzki's production was not quite up to his norm, as he hit .287 with eight home runs, but only eight doubles and two stolen bases. Given that the seven-year veteran is expected to be ready for spring training and that his dropoff was mild and over a short time period, there is no reason to think of him as anything less than the best shortstop in Fantasy. No other player at the position has the consistent track record of high batting averages, 30-plus home run power and run production that Tulowitzki has. He is still a legitimate first-round pick in all formats. (Updated 1/2/13)|
