DENVER (AP) – The Colorado Rockies are holding shortstop Troy Tulowitzki out of the lineup because of soggy weather and not soreness in his legs.

Tulowitzki says he ran before the game Wednesday against the New York Yankees and his legs “felt good.”

But given the damp conditions expected throughout the night the Rockies elected to play it safe and sit the All-Star out for a second straight game.

Manager Walt Weiss, trainer Keith Dugger and Tulowitzki met in Weiss’ office for quite a bit before reaching the decision. Tulowitzki says he will be available to pinch hit and “hopefully come up in a big spot and get a big hit for the team.”

Tulowitzki missed most of last season with a groin injury that required surgery to remove scar tissue.
