Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Tuesday that Troy Tulowitzki (heel) has been officially ruled out for Opening Day.
Gibbons already said a couple of weeks ago that Tulo wasn't expected to be ready, but now it's official. The veteran shortstop has been limited in camp due to a chronic bone spur in his right heel. While Tulo has taken batting practice, he hasn't been able to run at full speed. And it's unclear when he will be able to do so. Yangervis Solarte and Aledmys Diaz figure to fill in at shortstop.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that he doesn't expect Troy Tulowitzki (heel) to be ready for Opening Day.

"I don't expect he'll be ready," the skipper said. "But he's moving in the right direction." Tulowitzki is dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel and has been limited to monitored workouts to this point. It's unclear when he might be ready for game action. It appears that Yangervis Solarte or Aledmys Diaz will be the Blue Jays' Opening Day shortstop.

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) fielded grounders with his teammates on Sunday.

Tulo had been limited to individual drills with third base coach Luis Rivera. Most of the grounders Sunday were hit right at him, as he's not able to test his range much yet as he works his way back from a chronic bone spur in his right heel. Tulowitzki said recently that he wasn't sure whether he'd be ready for Opening Day.

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) couldn't say for sure Monday that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Tulowitzki missed the final two months last season with ligament damage in his right ankle and it was revealed last week that he's been dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel. He said he felt good on the field Monday, but that he plans to take it "day by day." There's still a long way to go before Opening Day, but fortunately the Blue Jays have Aledmys Diaz and Yangervis Solarte as insurance for their middle infield.

Troy Tulowitzki (heel) took grounders on the field and hit with no issues on Monday.

Tulowitzki is making progress, but he reported to camp with a bone spur in his heel and the Blue Jays plan to take it easy with him early on in spring. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons doesn't expect him to play for the first couple of games of the Grapefruit League schedule.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters Wednesday that Troy Tulowitzki has been dealing with a bone spur in his heel.

And we're off. Gibbons said the bone spur shouldn't be a significant issue but might cause some delays for Tulowitzki at the start of spring training. So it's at least kind of an issue. The veteran shortstop appeared in only 66 games last season and batted just .249/.300/.378 with seven home runs and 26 RBI when healthy. He is a high-risk fantasy bet for the 2018 campaign.

Blue Jays activated SS Troy Tulowitzki, 2B Devon Travis, RHP Aaron Sanchez and OF Dalton Pompey from the 60-day disabled list.

All of the players are now back on the 40-man roster. Tulowitzki missed the final two months of the season with ligament damage in his ankle.

Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) is dead-set on remaining at shortstop until the end of his career.

We have seen players adamant about position switches in the past who ultimately made successful transitions, but at least for now, Tulowitzki is not open to moving. The 32-year-old is currently on the shelf with ligament damage in his right ankle sustained in late July. He is not going to play again this season, but should be ready for spring training in 2018. If a position-switch is in play for next season, expect further updates this winter.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Troy Tulowitzki (ankle) should be healthy come spring training in 2018.

Tulowitzki sustained ligament damage in his right ankle near the end of July. He is expected to miss the remainder of the 2017 season, but barring offseason complications, it sounds like he should be a full-go for next spring.

Blue Jays transferred SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

He's now not eligible to return until late September, which means he's effectively ruled out for the season. Tulowitzki suffered ligament damage in his right ankle late last month.

An MRI revealed ligament damage in Troy Tulowitzki's right ankle.

A timetable for how long Tulowitzki might be sidelined won't be known until after he visits with a foot/ankle specialist, but the injury has the potential to be a season-ender. Tulo was injured during Friday's game versus the Angels.

Blue Jays placed INF Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a right ankle injury.

Tulowitzki suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Angels. He's heading for an MRI on Saturday to determine the full extent and severity of the ailment. Ryan Goins and Darwin Barney will occupy the middle infield in Toronto for the time being.

Troy Tulowitzki was removed from Friday's game against the Angels with an ankle injury.

Tulowitzki landed awkwardly on first base while attempting to beat out a ground ball and collapsed in a heap. Look for the Blue Jays to provide an update on his status after Friday's game.

Troy Tulowitzki singled twice and drove in a run Tuesday against the Athletics.

Tulo's RBI groundout in the second inning got the scoring going, as the Blue Jays took advantage of an A's error and plated four runs that frame. It's been another disappointing second at the plate for the shortstop, as he's sporting a pedestrian .252/.302/.380 batting line.

Troy Tulowitzki (groin) has returned to the Blue Jays' lineup Monday.

Tulo apparently got the go-ahead after taking ground balls and doing some light baserunning early Monday. The veteran shortstop sat out Saturday and Sunday with groin soreness.
