With the second worst record in the MLB and the worst in their division, not much has gone right for the Colorado Rockies in 2012 and the loss of two-time All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki certainly hasn't helped. After surgery on his left groin on June 21, Tulowitzki has had to sit idly by and watch the Rockies flounder in the NL West.
He may finally be slated for a return, though, as Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the shortstop just needs to pass a Wednesday checkup with the surgeon that performed on his groin before Tulowitzki can begin a rehab assignment over the weekend. While it's purely speculative at this point, Renck predicts it would be Tulsa, then Colorado Springs.
If all goes well, Tulowitzki could rejoin the Rockies in September, although the team will likely be extremely cautious and deliberate with their actions regarding the shortstop.
