The recent news that Rockies young superstar Troy Tulowitzki will hit the disabled list just got a lot worse. Doctors realized today that the tear in Tulowitzki’s right quadriceps is going to keep him out much longer than the originally prognosticated two weeks, according to a statement from his agent.
‘Best case scenario is six weeks. The realistic one is a few months,’ agent Paul Cohen told The Associated Press on Thursday. ‘We’re hoping it’s a couple months, but we won’t know until they do further medical tests.’

Cohen said team doctors will have a better feel for a timeline next week after ‘massive swelling and bleeding’ subside. ‘It’s a non-surgical tear, which could be a good thing.’
The combination of “massive swelling” and “bleeding” is about as pleasant and hopeful as “barely broken” and “light hemorrhaging”. This a massive blow to the Rockies, of course, who also recently lost Jeff Baker for an unknown amount of time.

The injuries forced Clint Hurdle to put catcher Chris Iannetta at third and Garrett Atkins at second for the remainder of the game on Tuesday. It’s a shame too, because Tulowitzki, even if he is slightly overrated on offense because of his monster season last year, is one of the best defensive players in the game.
