The Colorado Rockies are not having the 2014 season they envisioned, and things took a turn for the worse Saturday with Troy Tulowitzki.
Will Graves of the Associated Press filled fans in on the details:

The Rockies' public relations team provided an update:

Tulowitzki commented on the injury after the game, per ESPN.com, saying, "Nothing serious. We'll see how I wake up (Sunday). The good news is I don't think I tore anything or did anything to where I'm going to miss an extended period of time."
Tulowitzki has been one of the few bright spots for the Rockies this year. The squad sits in last place in the National League West at 40-57 and at this point is just playing out the string.
That takes nothing away from his performance, though. He is raking at the plate with a .342 batting average, 21 home runs and 52 RBI. His OPS is an impressive 1.041, and his 5.7 wins above replacement rate, per ESPN, has helped the Rockies avoid an even worse record.
The question now becomes how serious this injury will be looking forward for next season or in a possible trade. It’s not as if Colorado is going anywhere, but any injury will hurt his value.
