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.

Troy Tulowitzki (thumb) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Tulowitzi is trying his best to slog through a chip fracture in his right thumb suffered after being hit by a pitch on Sunday. The hope remains that the slugger will be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list. Darwin Barney will start at short on Wednesday and bat ninth.
Aug 3 - 5:43 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (thumb) remains absent from the Blue Jays' lineup on Tuesday night.

Tulowitzki suffered a small chip fracture in his right thumb when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday. He played catch and went through some other pregame drills on Tuesday evening, but it's not clear when he might return. Darwin Barney is starting at shortstop and batting ninth versus the Astros.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The spot for Lance McCullers improves even further. He had a 35.5 K% in July, which is good for just second best on the board today with several pitchers above 30% last month. The pitch counts can be an issue as he’s only gone past six innings a few times this year but has struck out exactly 10 in three of his last five and allowed a single run in five of his last six. Toronto is really a neutral matchup and maybe a plus draw given how weak the bottom half of the lineup is. They strike out fairly often (22.3% vs RHP), but also walk a bit (10.1% vs RHP) and have some power (14.9 HR/FB vs RHP).
Aug 2 - 4:50 PM

Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Monday that the team is confident Troy Tulowitzki (thumb) will avoid a stint on the disabled list.

Tulowitzki suffered a small chip fracture in his right thumb when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday, but the Blue Jays are optimistic the injury won't require an extended absence. Ryan Goins is starting at shortstop on Monday.
Aug 1 - 6:02 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced Sunday that Troy Tulowitzki suffered a chip fracture in his thumb when hit by a pitch in the sixth inning on Sunday.

The team isn't yet sure if he'll require a trip to the disabled list or not, it will depend on how he feels in the next couple of days and if he's able to tolerate the pain. If Tulo is forced back to the disabled list, Darwin Barney should see increased run at the shortstop position.
Jul 31 - 5:19 PM

Troy Tulowitzki is getting the day off Wednesday.

Darwin Barney will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo. This is just a day of maintenance for Tulo, who's batting .317/.348/.500 with four homers and 17 RBI so far in July.
Jul 27 - 10:29 AM

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.
Jul 7 - 11:51 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 5:34 PM

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.
Jun 18 - 12:15 PM

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.
