May 25 - 3:43 PM

Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with tightness in his right quad.

Tulowitzki was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base before exiting. He may have injured the quad on that swipe of second base in the top of the seventh. Ryan Goins moved to shortstop and catcher Russell Martin took over at second to close out the 6-0 loss. Tulo will be reevaluated by the Blue Jays training staff on Wednesday.

Justin Smoak and Troy Tulowitzki hit back-to-back home runs to tie the Rangers in the ninth inning of Saturday's 6-5, 10-inning loss.

Smoak was first up, clobbering a two-run homer off Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson with one out to draw the Blue Jays to within 5-4. That score would not even last one pitch, as Tulo promptly pounced on Tolleson's first pitch for a scalding liner of a homer. Those dramatics were towering, but would be erased one inning later when Drew Stubbs ended the game with a walk-off home run. For Tulowitzki, the ninth-inning homer was his eighth of the season. The slugger holds a .185/.280/.392 triple-slash across 130 at-bats. He has now homered in back-to-back games, perhaps a sign that his bat will soon wake from its slumber.

Troy Tulowitzki homered and knocked in three runs Friday against the Rangers.

Tulowitzki was credited with an RBI on a fielder’s choice in the sixth inning to get the Blue Jays on the board before adding a two-run homer in the eighth for some insurance. The 31-year-old has posted a miserable .175/.274/.357 batting line through 35 games, but he has at least contributed with seven home runs and 19 RBI.
May 14 - 1:35 AM

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three total RBI in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Tulo rocked a solo home run off Matt Cain in the second inning, then backed that up with a sacrifice fly in the seventh and an RBI double in the ninth. It was a strong game for a player who really, really needed one. For the season, he is slashing just .178/.272/.347 with six homers and 16 RBI over 118 at-bats. Tulowitzki holds a career triple-slash of .293/.366/.503 and he should hit a groove eventually, but his bat has yet to reach that lofty career slash with the Blue Jays. In 41 games after he was traded to Toronto from the Rockies last season, he hit .239/.317/.380.
May 11 - 1:11 AM

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

It appears to be a simple day off. Ryan Goins is at shortstop Friday and Darwin Barney is at second base.
May 6 - 3:53 PM

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.
Apr 23 - 4:06 PM

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.
