#Rockies Tulo injury: Hockey/Baseball Pitcher Syndrome is a type of athletic pubalgia or core injury to his left groin region. Con't— Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) June 20, 2012
The team's Twitter account went on to mention that Tulo is set for surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday. Dr. William Meyers will perform the surgery. And then there was the final announcement that there is no timetable for his return.
With the diagnosis out of the way and the surgery scheduled, I guess we can all breathe a little bit. And, hey, the team also came out with an update on Jorge De La Rosa: he's "good physically" but when is he getting back to baseball activity? TBD.
Everyone go back to talking about the four-man rotation.
