Troy Tulowitzki (heel) has begun running on an anti-gravity treadmill.
Tulowitzki is also taking groundballs and is hoping to progress to live batting practice by the end of this week. The veteran shortstop underwent surgery in early April to address bone spurs in both of his heels and he's doubtful to be an option for the Blue Jays before mid-June. May 15 - 4:48 PM

Date:

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) will be reevaluated next week.

This will be his first follow-up since undergoing surgery on both heels earlier this month. Tulowitzki was placed on the 60-day DL and won't be eligible to return until the end of May. Aledmys Diaz has been filling in at shortstop for Toronto.

Troy Tulowitzki underwent surgery Tuesday to address bone spurs in both of his heels.

No timetable has been revealed, but Tulowitzki was placed on the 60-day disabled list on Opening Day and figures to be sidelined through the first half of the season. Aledmys Diaz and Gift Ngoepe have both drawn starts at shortstop for Toronto in the early going. Yangervis Solarte could see some action there too.

Troy Tulowitzki will undergo surgery to remove bone spurs in both ankles later this week.

Tulowtizki was placed on the 60-day disabled list with bone spurs in his right heel, but it sounds like the shortstop has issues with both of his feet. Injuries have plagued the 33-year-old infielder, and even when "healthy" he's become impossible to trust. Don't expect to see Tulowtizki back in the field for the Blue Jays until summer, at the earliest.

Blue Jays placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 60-day disabled list with bone spurs in his right heel.

Tulo was scheduled to see an ankle specialist on Wednesday and the news apparently wasn't good, as the Jays have opted to put him on the 60-day DL rather than the 10-day DL. Aledmys Diaz, who batted just .259/.290/.329 in 301 plate appearances last year with St. Louis, will open the 2018 season as the Blue Jays' primary shortstop.

Troy Tulowitzki is scheduled to see an ankle specialist on Wednesday.

Tulo is still dealing with bone spurs in his right ankle along with discomfort in his heel -- issues that are related to an awkward play at first place last July. He's been ruled out for the first couple weeks of the 2018 regular season and it remains unclear when he might be ready to join the Blue Jays' active roster. "We’ll have clarity (Wednesday) on it," said GM Ross Atkins. "(Wednesday) I’ll have a lot more information. We obviously have a lot of information from the course of the offseason and after putting all the information together, there’s another specialist we’d like to see and he’d like to see."

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Tuesday that Troy Tulowitzki (heel) has been officially ruled out for Opening Day.

Gibbons already said a couple of weeks ago that Tulo wasn't expected to be ready, but now it's official. The veteran shortstop has been limited in camp due to a chronic bone spur in his right heel. While Tulo has taken batting practice, he hasn't been able to run at full speed. And it's unclear when he will be able to do so. Yangervis Solarte and Aledmys Diaz figure to fill in at shortstop.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that he doesn't expect Troy Tulowitzki (heel) to be ready for Opening Day.

"I don't expect he'll be ready," the skipper said. "But he's moving in the right direction." Tulowitzki is dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel and has been limited to monitored workouts to this point. It's unclear when he might be ready for game action. It appears that Yangervis Solarte or Aledmys Diaz will be the Blue Jays' Opening Day shortstop.
Mar 4 - 9:49 AM

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) fielded grounders with his teammates on Sunday.

Tulo had been limited to individual drills with third base coach Luis Rivera. Most of the grounders Sunday were hit right at him, as he's not able to test his range much yet as he works his way back from a chronic bone spur in his right heel. Tulowitzki said recently that he wasn't sure whether he'd be ready for Opening Day.

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) couldn't say for sure Monday that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Tulowitzki missed the final two months last season with ligament damage in his right ankle and it was revealed last week that he's been dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel. He said he felt good on the field Monday, but that he plans to take it "day by day." There's still a long way to go before Opening Day, but fortunately the Blue Jays have Aledmys Diaz and Yangervis Solarte as insurance for their middle infield.

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) took grounders on the field and hit with no issues on Monday.

Tulowitzki is making progress, but he reported to camp with a bone spur in his heel and the Blue Jays plan to take it easy with him early on in spring. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons doesn't expect him to play for the first couple of games of the Grapefruit League schedule.
Feb 19 - 1:39 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters Wednesday that Troy Tulowitzki has been dealing with a bone spur in his heel.

And we're off. Gibbons said the bone spur shouldn't be a significant issue but might cause some delays for Tulowitzki at the start of spring training. So it's at least kind of an issue. The veteran shortstop appeared in only 66 games last season and batted just .249/.300/.378 with seven home runs and 26 RBI when healthy. He is a high-risk fantasy bet for the 2018 campaign.
Feb 14 - 12:32 PM

Blue Jays activated SS Troy Tulowitzki, 2B Devon Travis, RHP Aaron Sanchez and OF Dalton Pompey from the 60-day disabled list.

All of the players are now back on the 40-man roster. Tulowitzki missed the final two months of the season with ligament damage in his ankle.

Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) is dead-set on remaining at shortstop until the end of his career.

We have seen players adamant about position switches in the past who ultimately made successful transitions, but at least for now, Tulowitzki is not open to moving. The 32-year-old is currently on the shelf with ligament damage in his right ankle sustained in late July. He is not going to play again this season, but should be ready for spring training in 2018. If a position-switch is in play for next season, expect further updates this winter.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) should be healthy come spring training in 2018.

Tulowitzki sustained ligament damage in his right ankle near the end of July. He is expected to miss the remainder of the 2017 season, but barring offseason complications, it sounds like he should be a full-go for next spring.
