SAN FRANCISCO — Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki departed Friday nights 7-4 success over the Giants with a proper toe injury after major off the top of the ninth inning with a single. X-rays on the third bone on the right foot had been negative.
Right now, it looks like some sort of sprained toe, manager Walt Weiss said. He felt something in his foot, and thats what we are calling it right now.
Beyond damages and the X-rays, the Rockies had no here is how much time Tulowitzki could miss, or perhaps whether he would miss video games. The clubs regular playing baseball order currently is without having left fielder Carlos Gonzalez (benign tumor within left index finger), right fielder Erina Cuddyer (fractured left shoulder) and third baseman Nolan Arenado (broken left center finger).
With the Rockies trailing by two runs and Leaders closer Sergio Romo pitching, Tulowitzki singled into heart field, but he pulled up as he reached first foundation. The hit started some sort of game-winning rally.
Charlie Culberson replaced him as well as scored on Ryan Wheelers two-run, bases-loaded sole that tied the game from 4. DJ LeMahieus single to help center drove in the go-ahead work. Michael McKenry added an RBI solitary, and LeMahieu scored when McKenry seemed to be picked off first base.
Tulowitzki — who entered the game foremost the Majors in hitting (.356), on-base percent (.488), slugging (.667) and OPS, or on-base percentage plus slugging percentage (1.115) — went 1-for-3 with a walk. Tulowitzki also came into the week leading many National League players with All-Star fan voting. He is seeking his second straight fan-elected start.
The Rockies are already careful with Tulowitzkis health the very last couple of seasons, and he has never experienced the long-term leg muscle mass injuries that have kept your ex off the field in the past. Theyve given him days off from the starting lineup on occasion in an effort to stave off muscle injuries.
But particularly doesnt prevent all accidents. Last year, Tulwotizki missed 25 activities after he dove for a surface ball June 13 — per year to the day ago — in addition to suffered a broken rib on the suitable side.
