Troy Tulowitzki Injury Update: Rockies Shortstop Could Be Done For The Season, According To Report

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that SS Troy Tulowitzki's season could be over. His sources have indicated that Tulo, though recovering, may instead be shut down to ensure a healthy return in 2013, when the team will have a chance to reload and try for the NL West again.

The Colorado Rockies currently sit at 37-60 and 17.5 games behind the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants. Tulowitzki has played in only 47 games for the Rockies in 2012 and a combined 203 late appearances.

He appeared to be on track for a June return, but pulled himself from one of his rehab games with a strained left groin. The Rockies have begun to use rookie SS Josh Rutledge in his place.
