Blue Jays hoping Troy Tulowitzki can return in 2-3 weeks
Tulowitzki suffered a crack in his left shoulder blade and severe upper back bruising Saturday in a collision with teammate Kevin Pillar. There should be a better read on Tulo’s exact recovery timetable when he’s reevaluated later this week.
“Not everyone heals the same way,” Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters Sunday morning. “It’s a very small crack. There’s a lot of bleeding internally that needs to subside at this point. I really think after the Atlanta series (the team’s next stop), we’ll have more of a feel to see how well he is doing.”
Tulowitzki has hit just .232/.314/.368 in 39 games since the Blue Jays acquired him from the Rockies, but it’ll be a tough blow if the star shortstop is not able to make it back by early October.
