Troy Tulowitzki intends to remain a shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki told The Denver Post he has no intentions of changing positions, despite two major surgeries to his left hip and groin area in the past two seasons. Tulowitzki also suffered a torn left quadriceps in 2008.

"No, I won't move," he said in a phone interview. "I will retire before I move.

"No. It's just who I am, it's what I do, it's what I have dreamed of as a kid. It's all I know and it's all I've ever worked for. So I guess when you have a dream and you accomplish it and someone tries to take it away from you ... it wouldn't be worth it for me to try to move somewhere else."

Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Tulowitzki's hip operation was a success and is on track to be ready for spring training. Tulowitzki, who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, is still on crutches, but he's been cleared to ride a stationary bike.

"The hope is that fixing the labrum kind of stabilizes my hip so that it's not the weakest link in my body, because the labrum was torn," Tulowitzki said. "Maybe those muscles in my legs, which have been working so hard ... can actually breathe now. I hope this works, so (the muscles) don't have to take the brunt of the work."


Troy Tulowitzki transferred to 60-day disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. The shortstop is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery.

Troy Tulowitzki proves something in shortened season


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2014) Troy Tulowitzki's career season came to an unceremonious end Wednesday with the announcement he needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

Most people who read that sentence will focus on the bad news -- specifically, three words: surgery, torn and hip. What they'll miss is the good news: career season.

Yes, Tulowitzki entered Thursday leading baseball in batting average (.340), on-base percentage (.432) and slugging percentage (.603). He's been the best hitter in the game this year, and he's done it at by far the weakest position. No Hanley Ramirez to narrow the gap this year. To use Head-to-Head points per game as an example (not because it's the only format that matters, but because it provides a clearer basis for comparison), the next-best shortstop to Tulowitzki, Jose Reyes, is 0.54 behind him. The gap between Tulowitzki and the rest of the position is like the gap between Ian Kinsler and Asdrubal Cabrera at second base.

After a slight dip last year that had some (myself included) fearing the injuries were beginning to catch up to him, Tulowitzki bounced back in a big way, reminding everyone he's the most valuable player in Fantasy when he's healthy enough to play. But of course, he frequently isn't.

Before I learned he needed hip surgery, I was prepared to rank him third, behind Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera, going into 2015. With the reminder of his fragility, I've dropped him to sixth, but I maintain that 110-120 games from him are more valuable than 150 games from a comparable first baseman or outfielder.

You'll find the rest of my projected first round here.


Troy Tulowitzki to undergo surgery, miss rest of season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo labral repair surgery on his left hip Friday and miss the remainder of the season, MLB.com reports.

Tulowitzki has been sidelined since July 19 with the hip injury. He finishes the season with a .340/.432/.603 line along with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 315 at-bats.


Troy Tulowitzki still dealing with discomfort in hip


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Sunday shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has returned to Denver to continue treatment because he continues to feel "on-and-off discomfort" in his hip, according to The Denver Post. Tulowitzki is set to consult with specialists to aid in the recovery process.

Tulowitzki is not close to coming off the disabled list or beginning a minor-league rehab assignment.


Tulowitzki: Staying with Rockies forever would be 'special'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Rockies stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who had been subject of trade rumors at the deadline last week, has stressed that he would prefer to remain with the team for the rest of his career.

"That would be special," he told MLB.com.

Tulowitzki has also expressed frustration over playing for a team that has not enjoyed a winning season since 2010. He had offered that he yearned to play for a club with a chance at the playoffs every year. Those words, uttered on July 4, fueled speculation about a trade. He denied any claims that he wanted to be dealt.

"People twist stories how they want it to be," he said. "I never said I demanded a trade or wanted out. I said if it was the best interest of the team to trade me for prospects and they came to me ... But I signed a contract because I wanted to be with the organization for a long time. Yeah, I'm tired of losing. I think all of us are."

Tulowitzki has been on the disabled list with a hip flexor since July 19.


Troy Tulowitzki takes batting practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki took batting practice before Wednesday's game, the Denver Post reports.

It's Tulowitzki's first workout since going on the disabled list with a hip flexor injury in mid-July. He was eyeing a potential return in mid-August, and he may be able to head out on a rehab assignment soon.


Rockies, Mets blockbuster unlikely to come together


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Rockies and Mets have gotten together a few times to discuss major deal involving Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Wednesday any move is unlikely to come before Thursday's deadline.

"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the talks told Heyman.

Gonzalez and Tulowitzki are both under long-term deals with the Rockies, but the team's struggles have pushed them into considering a move. The Mets would likely have to part with much of their young pitching talent to get the deal done, but that will likely have to wait until the offseason. The report also indicates a deal for Gonzalez is more likely than Tulowitzki, once talks resume after Thursday. 


Troy Tulowitzki to return by mid-August?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) 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
(7/29/2014) 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.


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. A league source told the website said it would take "the offer of the century" in order for a deal to get done by Thursday and "very, very, very highly doubts" Tulowitzki will be traded this week.

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.


Troy Tulowitzki attends game as spectator at Yankee Stadium


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who is slated to meet with Dr. William C. Meyers in Philadelpia Monday to receive treatment on his injured hip, was in attendance for Sunday's Blue Jays/Yankees game in New York.

"It’s a short drive from Philly. I’m with my family. I wanted to see (Derek) Jeter play one more time," Tulowitzki told The Denver Post.

Although Tulowitzki has been mentioned in trade rumors, he is not about to be dealt to the Yankees, a major-league source told The Post.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Troy Tulowitzki could need more than 15 days


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"He's sore," Weiss said. "I still consider him day to day, but he's sore. It could be a couple or three days. We'll monitor it and just check in with him hourly, but I'm expecting it to be another day or two."


Troy Tulowitzki a no-go Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Troy Tulowitzki exits game with thigh injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was forced out of Saturday's game against the Pirates with a cramp in the muscle of his left thigh, the Denver Post reports.

Troy Tulowitzki enters break with shot at Triple Crown


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is the National League leader in batting average and the league's coleader in home runs at the All-Star break, giving himself a legitimate chance at earning the NL's first batting Triple Crown since 1937.

Tulowitzki's .345 batting average is well ahead of the rest of the pack, with the Cardinals' Matt Adams sitting in second with a .329 mark. He's hit 21 home runs, as has the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton. The only category in which Tulowitzki is lagging behind is RBI, where his 52 RBI sit 11 behind Stanton's 63. If Tulowitzki were to pull off the feat, it would make two batting Triple Crowns in three years (Miguel Cabrera, 2012) after the lead went 45 years since its previous Triple Crown.


Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will be on the hill to start the game for the NL All-Stars.
