All went well with Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki's workout Wednesday, paving way for the 2011 All-Star to begin his much-awaited rehab assignment, according to the Denver Post's Tory Renck.
Tulowitzki, who hasn't played since May 30, traveled to Philadelphia early Wednesday to visit the doctor who performed surgery on his groin on June 21. From that appointment, and a successful groundball session with fellow injured infielder Josh Rutledge, the team now has enough confidence to allow Tulowitzki to begin making his way back, starting this weekend in Double-A Tulsa.
Tulowitzki had a .287/.360/.486 line in 203 plate appearances before aggravating his nagging groin injury in late May. The Rockies are likely to play it extremely careful with their star 27-year-old though with the team owning the third worst record in baseball and having little but pride to play for.
