Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays.
Edwin Encarnacion's RBI ground out in the eighth inning snapped a 1-1 tie, but it was Tulowitzki who truly salted the game away. His three-run homer off reliever Alex Colome later in the frame took the edge off what had been a tense pitcher's duel between Marcus Stroman and Jake Odorizzi. While Sunday's three-run dinger was nice, we are still waiting for Tulo to lock into any sort of a consistent groove. His .172/.291/.356 slugging percentage is troubling for obvious reasons, but he makes for a prime buy-low candidate if owners are beginning to grow skittish. May 1 - 4:10 PM

Troy Tulowitzki smashed a pair of solo home runs on Saturday, helping to lead the Blue Jays to a 9-3 victory over the Athletics.

It's the 12th multi-home run game of Tulowitzki's career. He tagged A's starter Chris Bassitt for the first blast in the sixth inning, increasing the Jays' lead to 6-2, then added another solo shot off Liam Hendriks in the seventh. Tulowitzki also singled, finishing the afternoon 3-for-4 to raise his season slash up to .188/.293/.391 to go along with four homers and 10 RBI.

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

Tulo has had a little hip soreness lately, but this is mostly just getting him some routine rest. Ryan Goins is playing shortstop and Darwin Barney is at second base. Michael Saunders is also off Friday, with Ezequiel Carrera covering left field.

Troy Tulowitzki hit his second home run of the season Thursday against the Yankees.

Tulowitzki took Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi deep for a solo shot in the sixth inning. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The 31-year-old has been struggling at the dish to start the year, hitting .139/.220/.306 with 12 strikeouts in 36 at-bats. He's obviously talented and couldn't ask for a better lineup, though, so nobody should sound the alarm bells just yet.
Apr 14 - 9:39 PM

Troy Tulowitzki drew a walk but went hitless in his other three plate appearances in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Tulo struck out twice on the night and has now whiffed 12 times in 28 at-bats this season. After slugging a two-run homer on Opening Day, the shortstop has gone 2-for-25 with 10 strikeouts and just two singles. He could probably use a day off.
Apr 12 - 10:48 PM

Troy Tulowitzki slugged a two-run shot in the Blue Jays' season-opening win over the Rays on Sunday.

It was an eighth-inning bomb to left field off Rays reliever Ryan Webb. Tulo also drew a walk in the first inning against Rays starter Chris Archer, though he struck out in his other two at-bats. The five-time All-Star can be a fantasy monster this year with Toronto if he is able to avoid long stays on the disabled list.
Apr 3 - 7:27 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hand) could return to the Blue Jays' spring lineup on Friday.

Tulo took a pitch off his knuckles on Wednesday, but X-rays came up negative. He just suffered a couple of bruises. The oft-injured shortstop has been having a terrific Grapefruit League and should be a fantasy stud this year in Toronto if he can stay healthy. There's value here for fantasy drafters willing to take the risk.

X-rays came back negative on Troy Tulowitzki's right hand.

Tulo got hit in the knuckles by a pitch on Wednesday but survived the frightening incident with only a couple of bruises. He should return to Grapefruit League action over the weekend. No worries here.
Mar 23 - 5:08 PM

Troy Tulowitzki is getting precautionary X-rays on his right hand.

Tulo was forced to exit Wednesday's game against the Mets after he was hit in the hand by a pitch. He was specifically hit in the knuckles and suffered some contusions, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says it isn't considered serious. Still, the team is sending him for X-rays just to be on the safe side.
Mar 23 - 3:41 PM

Troy Tulowitzki exited Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets after he was hit in the right hand by a pitch.

Bartolo Colon doesn't throw particularly hard, but the trainer was concerned enough by what he saw for Tulo to exit the game. The Blue Jays should pass along an update at some point on Wednesday.
Mar 23 - 2:22 PM

Troy Tulowitzki had a three-run homer as part of a five-RBI day as the Blue Jays crushed the Tigers 15-1 on Tuesday.

Tulowitzki has homered in three consecutive starts. The first was a solo shot on March 18 and the second was a two-run homer on March 20, so he appears to be on pace to hit a grand slam on March 24. Tul always been an especially big power guy in March; he now has 32 homers in 469 career spring training at-bats.
Mar 22 - 5:14 PM

Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run homer Sunday to lead the Jays to a 3-2 win over the Pirates.

It was Tulo's third homer of the spring. He's batting .259/.355/.593 in 27 at-bats. The Jays plan on batting Tulowitzki fifth behind Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. It's a pretty good RBI spot for him, but it'll mean few plate appearances and fewer runs scored that he usually gets.
Mar 20 - 3:58 PM

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-2 with a walk in his three plate appearances Tuesday against the Twins.

The Jays have said that Tulo isn't a candidate to hit leadoff, though he started there for the second time this spring. They've said that Michael Saunders is a candidate to hit leadoff, though he still hasn't spent any time there. They're kind of odd like that. We'd sure like Tulo better batting leadoff. It'd cost him RBI, but the runs scored and the extra couple of plate appearances per week would make up for that. Plus, he'll almost surely have a better OBP than either Saunders or Kevin Pillar.
Mar 8 - 5:45 PM

Troy Tulowitzki came up with a huge hit in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Royals in Game 5 of the ALCS, smacking a three-run double in the sixth inning.

Tulowitzki finished the contest 2-for-4. He stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and the Blue Jays holding a 2-0 lead in the sixth inning, then cracked a bases-clearing double off Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera to push the advantage to 5-0. One of the Blue Jays' new toys acquired in July, Tulowitzki's made good on the investment with seven postseason RBI to this point. Next up, Game 6 on Friday, as Tulowitzki and his fellow Jays look for another win to force a winner-take-all match in Game 7.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is using what has become his standard lineup in Tuesday's ALCS Game 4 against the Royals.

The Blue Jays' offense erupted for 11 runs in Game 3 on Monday night and Gibbons isn't making any changes. Troy Tulowitzki has shown some signs of life lately, going 4-for-8 with a homer and a double over his last two games. The full lineup: Ben Revere LF, Josh Donaldson 3B, Jose Bautista RF, Edwin Encarnacion DH, Chris Colabello 1B, Tulowitzki SS, Russell Martin C, Kevin Pillar CF, Ryan Goins 2B. The Blue Jays will send knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to the hill in an attempt to even the series. Chris Young will start for the Royals.
