Troy Tulowitzki to miss time with broken rib


The Colorado Rockies will be without shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for 4-6 weeks weeks. Tulowitzki has a broken rib on his right side.

For weeks Tulowitzki has dealt with sore ribs. He aggravated the injury on Thursday diving for a ground ball and an MRI later revealed the broken rib.

The Rockies are expected to call up Josh Rutledge from Triple-A prior to the start of Friday’s game.

Tulowitzki’s bat will be missed from the Rockies lineup as he was hitting .347/.414/.639 on the season with 16 home runs and 51 RBI.
