Rockies: Tulowitzki To Have Season-Ending Surgery

SAN DIEGO (AP) – The Colorado Rockies say All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will have surgery on his left hip Friday in Vail and miss the rest of the season.

The team announced the news following their 5-3 loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

Tulowitzki, whose .340 batting average remains tops in the big leagues, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 22, three days after he was hurt running out a grounder at Pittsburgh.

While it was Tulowitzki’s first trip to the DL this season, he had taken days off to rest his chronically tight legs. The leg issues date to 2008 when he tore the left quadriceps tendon.
