Blue Jays placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Tulowitzki joins Josh Donaldson (calf), Aaron Sanchez (finger) and J.A. Happ (elbow) among the Blue Jays' walking wounded. He suffered the injury Friday while running to third base on a wild pitch by Cam Bedrosian. Manager John Gibbons said the new 10-day rule was "definitely a factor" in placing Tulowitzki on the DL. Utility man Ryan Goins is starting in his place Saturday against the Angels.

Troy Tulowitzki will get the day off Thursday.

Ryan Goins is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in the Blue Jays' series finale against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Tulowitzki has batted just .264/.286/.396 through 56 plate appearances this season, though he does have 10 RBI in 14 games.

Troy Tulowitzki doubled twice and drove in all three runs for the Blue Jays in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

Tulo hit a deep sacrifice fly in addition to RBI two-baggers in the first and fifth innings. The latter double cut the Brewers' lead to one, but that was the last scoring of the contest. Tulowitzki has nine RBI on the season even though he's batting just .185/.207/.407.
Apr 11 - 11:46 PM

Troy Tulowitzki swatted his first home run of the season and plated four runs as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays in a wild game at Tropicana Field on Friday evening.

Tulo got the scoring started in this one with a two-run double off of Rays' starter Matt Andriese in the first inning. He added an opposite-field solo homer in the fourth inning, trimming their deficit to 6-3. Tulowitzki also drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning that briefly put the Jays back ahead at 7-6. With his 2-for-4 night, he's now hitting .118/.167/.353 on the season.
Apr 7 - 11:09 PM

Troy Tulowitzki doubled and singled in his two at-bats Friday against the Red Sox.

Tulo was leading off again today, and it seems like manager John Gibbons might be thinking of putting him there to begin the regular season. Gibbons did use him there after the Jays first acquired him in July 2015, but he declared last spring that he had no intention of doing it again and he hit Tulo in the middle of the order all year long. Devon Travis is the ideal option for the Jays in the top spot, but he's just working his way back and the team might figure it'd be asking too much to put him there on Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 4:51 PM

Troy Tulowitzki smacked a two-run home run in Friday's ALDS Game 2 victory over the Rangers.

Tulo's blast over the left-field wall in the second inning off of Yu Darvish got the scoring going. He also later added a single, as he was the lone Blue Jays player to tally multiple hits. The Jays went deep four times off of Darvish, as Kevin Pillar, Edwin Encarnacion and Ezequiel Carrera also hit one over the boards. The Blue Jays are taking a commanding 2-0 series lead back to Toronto.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-3 and scored a run in a loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

He doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly in the second inning. His team held the lead all night until squandering it in the ninth inning. Tulowitzki has failed to deliver anything close to the numbers he put up routinely in Coors Field in his days with the Rockies. He is batting .255/.318/.448 with 24 longballs, 78 RBI and just 54 runs in 127 games.

Troy Tulowitzki knocked in four runs Friday against the Yankees.

Tulo went 2-for-4 on the night. He drove in two runs with a single in the first inning before adding another two-run single in the seventh. The 31-year-old is hitting .253/.318/.445 with 24 homers and 77 RBI in his first full season with the Blue Jays. Those numbers don’t stand out as much at the shortstop position these days in fantasy leagues.

Troy Tulowitzki unloaded for a grand slam in Sunday's 11-8 loss to the Red Sox.

Tulowitzki stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the third inning. Squaring off against Clay Buchholz with one out, he proceeded to rock a granny to boost Toronto to a 6-4 advantage. The Red Sox would go on to score seven more runs, the Blue Jays just two. For the season, Tulo is slashing .258/.327/.461 with 23 homers and 71 RBI over 414 at-bats.

Troy Tulowitzki doubled twice in four at-bats as the Blue Jays got shut out by the Yankees on Wednesday.

He is now batting .253/.321/.454 with 22 home runs and 67 RBI in 108 games. Those are respectable numbers but they don't hold a candle to his days as a superstar at Coors Field. He missed a few weeks on the disabled list earlier this year to account for some of the depressed counting stats but the slash line is by far the worst of his career.

Troy Tulowitzki is getting the day off Monday.

Darwin Barney will start at shortstop and bat ninth versus Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. Toronto will also hit Devon Travis leadoff and Jose Bautista second in this afternoon opener at Yankee Stadium.

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Tulowitzki opened the scoring with an RBI single off Mike Fiers in the first inning. He would burn Fiers again several frames later, swatting a two-run home run off him in the fifth. For the season, Tulo's counting stats (20 homers, 61 RBI) are plenty respectable, though his current .248/.319/.464 triple-slash is noticeably lower than his career mark of .293/.365/.504.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-3, walked, homered and drove in five runs in the Blue Jays' win on Wednesday.

He cracked a three-run home run in the first inning, drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, then singled in a run in the sixth frame. He has had an up-and-down season. He is batting .248 with 19 home runs and 58 RBI. His counting stats are depressed due to a DL stint earlier in the year. He is still a solid fantasy shortstop but his Coors Field salad days as a perennial first round draft pick are long gone.

Troy Tulowitzki (thumb) is back in the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday against the Astros.

He'll bat seventh against Astros right-hander Mike Fiers. Tulowitzki had missed the previous three games with a chip fracture in his right thumb. It's great news for fantasy owners as Tulo is fourth among shortstops in home runs (18) and is coming off his best month of the season (.308 AVG in July) . Darwin Barney filled in at shortstop during his brief absence.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Tulo isn't in an elite spot in the order, but he's still a perfectly suitable GPP target tonight thanks to his .232 ISO vs. RHP. Mike Fiers has been a reverse splits pitcher this season with a .355 wOBA allowed to RH bats (.325 to LHs) including a 1.5 HR/9 rate and a very poor 26.2 Hd-Sft%. Fiers is a very hard guy to project on a start-by-start basis given his volatility, so picking on him with a few of the Jays power bats definitely has some upside.
