Troy Tulowitzki injury: Rockies SS won't play again in majors in 2012

Troy Tulowitzki won't play in either of the Colorado Rockies' final two games

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hasn't played in a Major League game since May 30. Turns out that will be the last Major League action Tulowitzki sees in 2012.

The Rockies' all-star shortstop won't return to the field for either of team's two final regular season games on the road against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday or Wednesday, according to the Denver Post. He played in an instructional league game on Monday, playing six innings and hitting a homer. But the team will hold him out of any real action.

Tulowitzki was hitting .287 with 8 homers and 27 RBIs before going down with a groin injury May 30. He was scheduled to return to the team in mid-September but suffered setbacks in his rehab assignments.

The report goes on to mention that teams could inquire about trading for the two-time all-star, but the Rockies will likely hold on to the 27-year-old star.
