Troy Tulowitzki did not record a hit in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.
Tulo ended the game 0-for-3. He shouldn't hang his head, though, as the Dodgers combined to hold the Rockies to just four hits in the contest. Even with the uneventful day at the park, Tulowitzki's still hitting .326/.340/.543 with one home run, seven RBI and eight runs scored. As always, if Tulowitzki can remain healthy, he will be one of the top offensive producers in baseball. To this point, his hip has not started barking at him. Apr 19 - 8:22 PM

Troy Tulowitzki had an RBI single in Monday's win over the Giants.

The Rockies got some insurance in the seventh inning on an error from Chris Heston on a play at home plate, but Tulo's fourth-inning single was all they needed. He finished 1-for-4 on the day and is batting .370 (10-for-27) with six doubles and five RBI through seven games. Who knows how long he'll stay healthy, but he appears back to 100 percent after hip surgery.

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a day off after playing in the Rockies' first five games. Daniel Descalso is handling shortstop in Tulo's place. Nick Hundley is also receiving a breather, with Michael McKenry starting at catcher.

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and three runs scored on Opening Day against the Brewers.

Tulowitzki was arguably the best player in baseball last season before undergoing hip surgery, but he's back to full health now and already showing it with the bat. He's obviously capable of being the top fantasy shortstop this season, but it's just hard to count on him to stay on the field.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a pair of home runs on Wednesday, finishing 3-for-5 against the Rangers in Cactus League action.

Tulowitzki's first home run, off of Colby Lewis, put the Rockies up 2-1 in the bottom of the first inning. He went yard off of Lewis again, a solo shot, in the third inning to break a 3-3 tie. Not that it's any surprise, but Tulowitzki nears the end of spring training with fantastic numbers: a .385 average (15-for-39), five home runs, and 11 RBI.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Cactus League match-up with the Giants.

Tulowitzki took Tim Hudson yard in the fourth inning, part of a three-run frame for the Rockies. The shortstop has three homers on the spring along with eight RBI and a .375 average (9-for-24). Tulowitzki should contribute immense fantasy value provided he can stay healthy.

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with a bases-clearing double Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Tulowitzki doubled with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, running the Rockies' lead to 5-0 at the time. The performance runs his average up to .333 (6-for-18) and he has two home runs and six RBI to go with it. If Tulowitzki can stay healthy, he should post MVP-caliber numbers. He had a 1.035 OPS in 375 plate appearances last season.

Troy Tulowitzki slugged a two-run home run in Sunday's Cactus League match-up against the Royals.

Tulowitzki took Aaron Brooks deep in the first inning to put the Rockies up 2-0 early. Justin Morneau immediately followed up with a homer of his own to go back-to-back. The Rockies' shortstop now has two dingers on the spring. There's never been a question whether he'll hit; it's always been whether he'll stay healthy. Tulowitzki missed a few games in the first half due to minor ailments, then missed the final two and a half months due to a torn labrum in his hip. He finished with a 1.035 OPS in 375 plate appearances.
Mar 15 - 6:59 PM

Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Mariners in the Cactus League.

Tulo walked in his only other at-bat. The homer came in the first inning off Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez, his first of the spring. As long as he remains healthy there will be plenty more where that came from for the 30-year-old this season.
Mar 11 - 7:10 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) is making his spring debut in Monday's Cactus League game versus the Reds.

He is batting third and starting at shortstop. Tulo sat out the first week or so of Cactus League games as a precautionary measure following last year's hip surgery. He should be 100 percent on Opening Day.
Mar 9 - 11:03 AM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) began base-running work Monday.

He is easing into action this spring after undergoing season-ending hip surgery last August. Tulowitzki should be ready for Opening Day and remains a first-round fantasy guy because of his immense level of production when healthy. He hit .340/.432/.603 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI in 91 games last season.
Mar 2 - 12:28 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) will run the bases next week.

Tulo is recovering from surgery to repair his torn left hip labrum, and the Rockies are taking it slow with their superstar as he returns to action. Tulowitzki has already been taking infield practice this spring, another good sign. Assuming his progress continues, Tulo should be ready to roll for Opening Day.
Feb 28 - 6:29 PM

Rockies general Jeff Bridich told FOX Sports' Jon Morosi on Tuesday that it's "highly, highly unlikely" either Troy Tulowitzki or Carlos Gonzalez will be dealt before Opening Day.

There's been some debate about whether the Rockies actually want to move them at all, but Tulowitzki is coming off hip surgery and Gonzalez is working his way back from knee surgery, so teams likely want to see how they look in the spring and/or the early part of the season before seriously thinking about the possibility. Tulo is owed $114 million over the next six seasons while CarGo is owed $53 million over the next three seasons.
Jan 27 - 2:48 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (hip) began fielding drills this week.

"Tulo was in Denver last week just for a couple days for a routine checkup on his progress, and everything's great," Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said. "He's swinging fully, he's taking full batting practice in the cage, and this week he's starting to add taking ground balls in the infield and really starting to ramp up the pure baseball activity." Making his way back from surgery to repair his torn left hip labrum, Tulo is expected to enter spring training with no restrictions. However, he’s only been on the field for an average of 88 games over the last three seasons and remains a huge health risk.
Jan 23 - 12:22 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have checked in with the Rockies on Troy Tulowitzki.

Heyman reported late last week that the Mets and Rockies had been "quietly discussing" the parameters of a Tulowitzki trade, but the two sides have not been able to find a match. And while the Yankees also have a big hole at shortstop, they probably don't possess the kind of elite-level prospects that Colorado would want in a return package. Heyman writes Monday that it "remains unclear how committed the Rockies-owning Monfort brothers are to trading the beloved Tulo."
