Well, here we go again Rockies fans. We are just under two weeks into the Major League Baseball season and Troy Tulowitzki is already dealing with an injury. Before Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox, Troy told skipper Walt Weiss he was dealing with a so-called ‘slight-pull’ of his right quadriceps. In Monday night’s game, Colorado was up 7-0 in the seventh inning and Troy was pulled because of the tightness. Despite the injury, Tulo went 1-for-3 in Tuesday’s game with an RBI double.
Here is what Troy told The Denver Post:
“My leg is a little tight, and the (cold) weather had a little bit to do with it, too,” Tulowitzki said. “I think it’s just fatigued after playing some games and making a lot of plays.”
Skipper Walt Weiss added his two-cents on the situation:
“We talk every day to make sure we’re on the same page,” manager Walt Weiss said. “I’ll continue to keep an eye on him and make sure he’s OK, especially the leg. I try to talk to everybody every day, but Tulo specifically because he has some history there (with his legs).”
Troy reiterated that the injury isn’t related to the groin injury he suffered in 2012 that would limit the all-star shortstop to just 47 games. Rockies fans may panic about this referring to Tulo’s injury history but right now this doesn’t seem like a big deal. The weather hasn’t been the best as its natural that some players legs are heavy due to the cold. But I guess you never know with Troy Tulowitzki. If the Rockies want to make a run at the postseason, they will need their all-star shortstop in the lineup and healthy. Troy is currently hitting .407 with one home run and five runs batted in.
