Troy Tulowitzki’s May Not Play Again in 2012


Troy Tulowitzki (groin) is trying to return from a groin injury that has sidelined him since late May. Tulo and the Rockies had hoped that he would be ready to rejoin the team on Saturday when rosters expand. But, now it appears that he will not be ready to play on Saturday. Tulo is without a clear timetable for his return, but what we know is that he won’t be activated from the disabled list this weekend. And, a return to the Rockies in September is not a lock either. Both Tulowitzki and Jason Giambi (viral syndrome) will move their rehab assignments Wednesday to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Josh Rutledge (quad) returned to action Tuesday and will continue to serve as the everyday shortstop.

In other fantasy news…..

  • Jose Bautista (wrist) will undergo season-ending surgery to stabilize a tendon in his left wrist. The recovery period is three to four months and he would be ready to play long before the start of spring training next year.
  • Andy Pettitte (ankle) is expected to throw a bullpen session this weekend after passing the first test on Tuesday.
  • Joey Votto (knee) played five innings and went 0-for-1 with a walk in his first rehab game with Class A Dayton.
  • Matt Kemp underwent an MRI on his right knee and a CAT scan on his jaw Tuesday night after crashing hard into the center field wall.
  • Johny Cueto earned his Major League-leading 17th win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, giving up just two runs while striking out five in seven strong innings.
  • Wilin Rosario belted his 22nd home run while going 3-for-4 and collecting three RBI. Rosario doesn’t play everyday and won’t provide fantasy owners with a high average, but he will provide strong power numbers from a fantasy position that doesn’t offer much of it.
  • Kris Medlen was dominate once again on Tuesday night against the Padres. Medlen threw eight innings of shutout ball while striking out nine and no walks in Tuesday’s win.
  • Yadier Molina left Tuesday’s contest at Pittsburgh with an upper back, left shoulder, and neck strain, after Josh Harrison ran Yadi over at the plate.
