Troy Tulowitzki to the DL

New, comments

According to Tracy Ringolsby, Troy Tulowitzki has indeed broken his wrist and will be sent to the DL.

SS Chris Nelson is being called up from AAA Colorado Springs to take his roster spot.

So far this season, Tulo has posted a .306/.375/.502 line with 9HR, 34RBI. Tulo's .386 wOBA was 3rd best on the team, and his 2.3 WAR ranked 2nd.

Word is that Clint Barmes will slide to SS. I'd like to see Nelson take some reps there as well.

 

Ringolsby reports Tulowitzki will be out 6-8 weeks.

 

Troy Renck follows up to tell us that Tulowitzki's hamate bone has been broken, and that the DL stint may only be 4-6 weeks.

He also brings one big line from GM Dan O'Dowd:

O'Dowd admitted he will be looking at possible trades while Tulowitzki is out, to add infield depth.
