Troy Tulowitzki Injury: Rockies SS Leaves Rehab Game, To Be Evaluated In Denver

Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki returned to Denver for evaluation after pulling himself from a rehab game with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday, as Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Tulowitzki was 2-for-2 with a homer during the game, but he pulled himself out of the game after running the bases.

Tulowitzki has been on the disabled list since May 31 with a strained left groin, but there was optimism that he'd be able to return soon after beginning his minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday. Unfortunately, that didn't even last a game before the shortstop appeared to have a setback, making it unclear when he'll be able to return to the Rockies.

He would have been eligible to return on Friday, but now the Rockies may have to go with Marco Scutaro at shortstop for the near future.
