The 27-year old shortstop was hitting .287/.360/.846 at the time of the injury with eight homers and 27 RBI. The Rockies have struggled immensely without their two-time All-Star in the lineup, as the team has now lost 12 of their last 13 games. Tulo hasn't played since a May 30 contest vs. the Houston Astros.

Veteran Marco Scutaro has replaced Tulowitzki as Colorado's everyday shorstop. The 36-year old Scutaro is hitting .273 with four homers and 18 RBI this season.
