Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Blue Jays came back to beat the Tigers 5-4 on Thursday.

Tulo had an RBI single in the seventh inning before coming to the plate with two outs and the bases loaded in the eighth. He delivered a two-run single that gave the Jays the lead, and they won by the same score. It hasn't been vintage Tulo in the season's first half, but he does have 15 home runs and 43 RBI to go with a disappointing .239/.320/.466 line overall.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Tulowitzki and Devon Travis both launched two-run homers off Chris Tillman in the second inning. Tulo has been one of the more frustrating fantasy players this season. Not only did he miss close to a month with a strained right quad, he is hitting just .206/.288/.400 with nine homers and 25 RBI in 48 games.

Blue Jays activated SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 15-day disabled list.

Tulowitzki has been sidelined since May 28 due to a strained right quad. Prior to landing on the shelf, the 31-year-old was hitting .204/.289/.383 with eight homers and 23 RBI in 46 games.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is set to begin a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin on Thursday.

Tulowitzki took four at-bats at the team's minor league complex on Wednesday and felt fine. Unless he wakes up Thursday morning feeling discomfort, he will begin his rehab assignment later that day. He was initially placed on the disabled list with a strained right quad on May 28, then suffered a setback last Friday while playing in an extended spring training game. The Jays face the Orioles this weekend and Tulowitzki could return during that series if he survives his rehab assignment.
Jun 15 - 8:57 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is expected to resume activity Wednesday in Dunedin.

The original hope was that Tulowitzki would be able to return from the disabled list when first eligible on Monday, but he suffered a setback during an extended spring training game on Friday. He's still likely a few days away, at the very least.
Jun 13 - 4:23 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons offered no update Sunday on the status of Troy Tulowitzki.

Probably because there was nothing to update. Tulowitzki landed on the disabled list May 28 with a strained right quadriceps muscle and suffered a setback last week in an extended spring training game. He remains shut down, with no clear timetable for his return to the Blue Jays' active roster. Ryan Goins and Darwin Barney will continue to fill in at shortstop for Toronto.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) was forced to an early exit in an extended spring training game on Friday.

Everything had looked in order for Tulowitzki to return to the Blue Jays on June 13. This latest setback muddies the water considerably. The veteran slugger was expected to begin a rehab stint at Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, but no word as of yet whether that remains the case.
Jun 10 - 5:30 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons confirmed Wednesday that Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is on track to return from the disabled list when first eligible on June 13.

Tulowitzki is already doing hitting drills and will presumably resume running within the next couple of days. It appears he will skip a minor league rehab assignment. Tulo landed on the 15-day disabled list May 28 because of a strained right quadriceps muscle, after batting just .204/.289/.383 (with eight homers) in his first 46 games. Darwin Barney and Ryan Goins have been filling in at shortstop for Toronto.
Jun 8 - 11:51 AM

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) could be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on June 12.

Blue Jays trainer George Poulis said Sunday that Tulo is feeling "better and better each day." The shortstop will hit off a tee on Monday at the team's spring training complex. Tulowitzki has batted .204/.289/.383 with eight homers for Toronto this season.
Jun 5 - 12:05 PM

Blue Jays placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup again on Thursday.

May 26 - 1:55 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) was feeling better on Wednesday, but is still considered day-to-day.
