Troy Tulowitzki Injury: Rockies SS Will Be Re-Evaluated On Monday

Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will travel to Philadelphia on Monday to have his groin injury re-evaluated by Dr. William Meyers. It's possible that Tulowitzki has a sports hernia.

Dr. William Meyers, a surgeon with extensive experience in sports hernia injuries, will look at Tulowitzki’s two previous MRI reports plus conduct his own evaluation. Meyers performed a sports hernia surgery on Rangers star Josh Hamiltion in November 2011. Meyers also has operated on football players Donovan McNabb and Jeremy Shockey, and hockey player Tomas Holmstrom.
