Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is working hard to recover from groin surgery to remove scar tissue and address chronic pain in his groin, and although most estimates have the young star out until August he is starting to feel better and is generally pleased with his progress in his recovery. As he said on Thursday, "I'm feeling better every day." The update comes via Troy E. Renck and Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post as a footnote to their story about the Rockies getting back to baseball after the all-star break, but Tulowitzki's status is anything but a footnote to the franchise.
Although the team has suffered through a string of unfortunate injuries in 2012 and is no longer primed for a playoff push, it is good to hear that Tulowitzki is recovering well. There is no rush to get him back on the field, but his long-term health is vital to the future of the franchise.
