Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Tulo missed the previous two games after his left quad tightened up on him during Friday's contest. Fantasy owners have their fingers crossed that he'll be able to stay on the field this week with the Rockies having eight games at Coors Field.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

Tulo tweaked his left quad during Friday's contests. It doesn't seem like a potential disabled list situation, but with his history of leg issues you never know. Daniel Descalso is handling shortstop Sunday.

Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Saturday against the Dodgers.

Tulo made an early departure from Friday's game after experiencing tightness in his left quad. The star shortstop is considered day-to-day for now. Daniel Descalso is filling in at short and batting eighth.

Troy Tulowitzki left Friday's game with left quadriceps tightness.

Tulowitzki exited the game in the middle of the third inning. The team is calling his injury "left quadriceps tightness." The positive here is that it's not related to his oft-injured hip. He'll be reevaluated after the game.

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich called recent talks of a possible Troy Tulowitzki trade a "media production."

Trade winds have begun to swirl around Tulowtizki, especially with the Rockies recent struggles, but GM Bridich scoffed at the recent reports. "What's gone on the last few days, especially the last 72 hours, really has a been a media production, more than anything else," said Bridich. Tulo met with his agent, Paul Cohen, on Thursday and has decided that he won't push for a trade for the time being, but even if he does push for it, Bridich indicated that Tulowitzki doesn't have a say here. "...the reality is that Troy doesn't have control of this and neither does his agent, for the contract.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Nationals have "made it clear" to the Rockies that they'd want to be involved if Troy Tulowitzki trade talks ever got serious.

Heyman notes that, not surprisingly, the Nats "likely wouldn't want to part with top pitching prospect Lucas Giolito," but he lists A.J. Cole, Reynaldo Lopez, Erick Fedde and Joe Ross as prospects who could be on the table. Washington, of course, has Ian Desmond at shortstop this season, but it seems to be a foregone conclusion that he'll leave as a free agent next winter and Tulo would represent a long-term solution at the position. Tulo met with his agent, Paul Cohen, on Thursday and determined that he would not demand a trade from the Rockies at this time. However, there's still a good chance he gets dealt eventually.

After meeting with his agent and discussing the matter on Thursday afternoon, Troy Tulowitzki will not demand a trade from the Rockies.

Tulowitzki indicated that he'll have to take it upon himself to play better and end the losing that has been going on in Colorado. The first step towards doing that will be finding a way to stay on the field, as the oft-injured superstar has averaged just 88 games played over the past three seasons.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Troy Tulowitzki will decide in a meeting Thursday with his agent, Paul Cohen, whether it's time to ask the Rockies for a trade.

"To say that it is not a possibility would be silly," Cohen told The Post by phone. The Rockies look like a non-contender again, so it's no surprise that Tulo might have finally reached his breaking point. Sherman notes that the Mets, Pirates, Mariners and Padres all have needs at shortstop, which could potentially create a bidding war for Tulowitzki. He adds that the Yankees are not expected to have interest. Tulo began this season with six years and $118 million left on his contract.

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

It looks like he's just getting a breather. Rafael Ynoa is at shortstop Sunday in Tulowitzki's place.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo home run in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the Giants.

The home run was Tulowitzki's second of the season and gave him nine RBI. He also added a single to finish the game 2-for-5. While his .303/.309/.530 slash-line is impressive in its own right (though his lack of walks is somewhat odd), owners should be even more pleased that Tulo's showing no ill-effect or discomfort from last year's hip surgery. If he can stay healthy, his bat remains one of the best in the game.

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

It appears to just be a day of rest. Daniel Descalso is starting at shortstop Friday in Tulowitzki's place.
Apr 24 - 4:20 PM

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.
Apr 13 - 8:30 PM

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.
