Terrible Season Just Got Worse For The Colorado Rockies

Not only did the Colorado Rockies suffer a three-game sweep Wednesday afternoon at the hands of the San Diego Padres, they would also receive terrible news after the loss. According to Thomas Harding who covers the Colorado Rockies for MLB.com, All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo labral repair surgery Friday in Vail, Colorado on his left hip.

Tulowitzki, 29, last played on July 19th against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tulo tried running out a routine ground ball but came up limping, grabbing his left quad. Troy was tearing up the league, hitting an MLB best .340/.432/.603 with 18 doubles, 21 home runs, and 52 RBI’s. He was well on his way to an MVP season but it was highly unlikely he would achieve the award with the team’s record.

Rockies fans would receive more bad news as Harding would also report that Carlos Gonzalez‘s damage on his patella tendon has increased slightly.

CarGo struggled mightily once he came back from finger surgery. The native of Maracaibo, Venezuela was hitting a career-low .238 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI’s. His plate discipline was non-existent to say the least as the outfielder struck out 70 times in 70 games — 1 per.

The Colorado Rockies at 46-74 are well on their way to a top pick in next years draft and the future of the club just got a bit hazy.
