Andrew Martin of Purple Row reacts to the Tulo injury:
So far this season, Tulo has posted a .306/.375/.502 line with 9HR, 34RBI. Tulo’s .386 wOBA was 3rd best on the team, and his 2.3 WAR ranked 2nd.
Word is that Clint Barmes will slide to SS. I’d like to see Nelson take some reps there as well.
With a less than adequate replacement at shortstop in Barmes and the unproven Herrera and Nelson platooning at second, the Rockies will need to avoid a June and July swoon. If not, the playoffs will be out of reach.
