Troy Tulowitzki (hip) said Friday that he will retire before he considers a position change.
Tulo has had two major surgeries to his left hip and groin area in the past two years and also tore his left quad in 2008. Moving to a different position would theoretically give him a better chance of staying healthy, but he's not interested. "No. It's just who I am, it's what I do, it's what I have dreamed of as a kid," said Tulowitzki. "It's all I know and it's all I've ever worked for. So I guess when you have a dream and you accomplish it and someone tries to take it away from you ... it wouldn't be worth it for me to try and move somewhere else." Aug 29 - 4:47 PM

Rockies transferred SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Matt McBride. Tulo, of course, is out for the season following surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip.

Troy Tulowitzki underwent successful surgery Friday to repair the labrum in his left hip.

The Rockies haven't provided a timetable on Tulowitzki's recovery, but he should be ready to go for spring training. The operation ends what was shaping up to be a terrific season for the shortstop, as Tulo hit .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI over 91 games.

Troy Tulowitzki will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip.

Tulo visited an orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday with the fear that his labrum might be involved, and that appears to be the case. It's a disappointing development for the potential NL MVP. Tulowitzki's season ends with the shortstop hitting .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI.

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) will visit orthopedic surgeon Dr. Marc Philippon on Wednesday.

Tulowitzki has been on the shelf since July 19 with a strained left hip flexor, but the Rockies suspect there could be an issue with his labrum. Even if it's determined that he does have a labrum issue, it's possible Tulo could treat it with rest and rehab and still return this season. More will obviously be known after Wednesday's exam.
Aug 12 - 11:55 PM

The Rockies are consulting doctors in hopes of determining whether Troy Tulowitzki might have a labrum issue with his left hip.

Tulo has been on the disabled list since late July with what's been called a left hip flexor strain, but he hasn't recovered as quickly as hoped and the Rockies are trying to find out whether there might be a more serious underlying issue. It's not clear at this point if a labrum issue might require surgery, but it would surely end his season either way.
Aug 10 - 3:52 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) has yet to run the bases since landing on the disabled list.

Tulo has gone through on-field drills, including batting practice, but the biggest step will be to test his left hip flexor strain on the basepaths. It's not clear when that might happen. The shortstop has been out since late July and there's no timetable for his return.

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) took on-field batting practice before Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

It was the first time Tulo had taken BP or done anything baseball related since landing on the disabled list on July 22. He appeared relatively unaffected, too -- Nick Groke of the Denver Post said he was hitting balls into the upper deck during the session. The Rockies haven't given any sort of timeline for Tulo's return, but Wednesday was certainly a positive step. A return in mid-to-late August appears within reach.
Aug 6 - 7:03 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) has yet to resume baseball activities.

However, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday that he's more encouraged by Tulo's progress now than he was a week ago. "I'm encouraged by what he's doing. He's running around," Weiss said. "I'm encouraged that it maybe won't be as long as I thought maybe a week ago." There's no timetable for the shortstop's return.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports hears that teams have called to express interest in Troy Tulowitzki, but that the Rockies have no plans to move him.

There's increased speculation that Tulo wants to be part of a winner, but a deal appears unlikely to come together before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline, especially considering that he is currently on the disabled list with a left hip flexor strain. Putting the rumors aside, the Rockies would likely have to be overwhelmed to move him. We're guessing it has a better chance of happening this winter, if anything.

According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, the Mets have reached out to the Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki.

Passan says New York is "prepared to offer top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard in a deal for" the star shortstop, who is signed through 2021. The Cardinals have also made their interest known, but it doesn't sound like the Rockies are going to budge this summer on a trade involving the current face of their franchise. Tulo is currently on the disabled list anyway with a left hip flexor strain. He flew to Philadelphia this weekend to meet with a sports hernia surgeon and took in a game (quite controversially) on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Troy Tulowitzki flew to Philadelphia on Saturday to see a sports hernia surgeon regarding his leg injury.

Tulowitzki has been out since July 20 with a left hip flexor strain and apparently hasn't made much progress on his current rehab program. The star shortstop holds a sensational .340/.432/.603 batting line with 21 home runs and 52 RBI on the season, but it's not clear at this point how long he is going to be sidelined.
Jul 26 - 11:31 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have told the Rockies that they want in on the bidding if Colorado ever decides to trade Troy Tulowitzki and/or Carlos Gonzalez.

At least publicly, the Rockies have maintained a commitment to both players. However, there's some feeling that they could eventually change their mind, whether it be at the trade deadline or this offseason. The Mets have been shopping for a shortstop for a while now and have a bevy of pitching prospects, so they could be a fit. However, Sherman notes that Tulo has a no-trade clause and might prefer to play for the Yankees than the Mets. Sherman also adds that the Cardinals are "enamored with Tulowitzki and would move significant pieces to land him." Rest assured, there will be multiple teams in on the bidding if Tulo and/or CarGo are put on the trade block.
Jul 25 - 12:12 AM

Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said Tuesday that there's no guarantee Troy Tulowitzki (hip) will be ready for activation when his 15 days are up.

Tulo was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a left hip flexor strain. It's possible he'll be ready to go in two weeks, but it's far from a given, particularly with his history of leg issues. Josh Rutledge will handle shortstop while Tulo is out.
Jul 22 - 6:30 PM

Rockies placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with a left hip flexor strain.

Tulo suffered the hip strain Saturday while trying to leg out a single. The Rockies called the injury a quad "cramp" at first, but Tulo wasn't making much progress and will now be sidelined through the July 31 trade deadline. He wasn't likely to be dealt anyway. Josh Rutledge will fill in at shortstop and could be a decent mixed-league fantasy option for a bit.
