Tulowitzki hopes to avoid a trip to the disabled list for the injured groin suffered during Wednesday's game, and he is on Thursday's lineup card, so he hasn't been sent to the DL yet. As he continues to get treatment on the groin, that could change.
The first pitch of Thursday's game is set for approximately 6:40 p.m. MT.
