DENVER – The Colorado Rockies lost All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a minimum of 15 days as he was placed on the DL because of a strained left groin. Tulowitzki said he felt the pain when he grounded out to second base during the Rockies six run sixth inning against the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Rockies manager Jim Tracy said “This is the right thing to do, this is the right move to make,” I don’t think it’s anything structurally bad. However, he’s very sore and very tender. Tulowitzki was on a nine-game hitting streak and had been hitting .388 during the streak. Teammates were quick to respond and hopeful of a quick recovery. “I just want him to be healthy and get right and we all believe he’s going to be even better,” outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said after Wednesday’s game.
