News: Tulowitzki (thigh) is expected to return by the middle of August, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports. Impact: The Rockies still aren't providing an official timetable for Tulowitzki's return, so consider mid-August to be the far end for his potential activation from the DL. Tulowitzki spent the past weekend on the East Coast to meet with Philadelphia surgeon Dr. William Meyers, who performed a dry needling procedure on Tulowitzki's left hip flexor. Tulowitzki said the visit with Dr. Meyers went well, but it's not certain when he might resume baseball-related activities.(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki has been receiving dry needling treatment on his ailing thigh in Philadelphia this weekend, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Tulowitzki made the long trek from Denver to Philadelphia in order to meet William Meyers, a surgeon considered one of the foremost experts in sports injuries. The shortstop previously consulted with Meyers for his sports hernia surgery in 2012, but the Rockies are hoping Tulowitzki will be able to avoid that sort of season-ending procedure this time around. Once Tulo returns to Denver, the Rockies should have a better idea on a potential timetable for his recovery.(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki visited noted surgeon William C. Meyers on Saturday to discuss his left hip flexor strain, MLB.com reports. Impact: Tulowitzki will visit the same surgeon who performed surgery to remove scar tissue from his right groin in 2012. The severity of his injury isn't clear, but this likely isn't a good sign.(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki (thigh) was placed on the 15-day DL by the Rockies on Tuesday, the Denver Post reports. Impact: This makes sense given how far out of it the Rockies have fallen. Tulowitzki has been out since getting hurt on Saturday night. "I think this is for the best," Tulowitzki said. "I've already missed some time, and with where we are right now, we think this is the best move so I can get healthy."(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki (thigh) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals. Impact: A thigh cramp forced Tulowitzki from Saturday's game, and he's set to miss a third straight start Tuesday as a result, but the 29-year-old is optimistic he'll be able to avoid the disabled list. It's not clear, however, whether Tulowitzki will be available in any capacity for the final two games of the series against Washington. Josh Rutledge will continue to man short in his absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki (thigh) doesn't believe he'll require a stint on the disabled list, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Tulowitzki is optimistic as expected, and has his sights set on returning to action for Tuesday's tilt against the Nationals. However, if his sore thigh doesn't respond well to Tuesday's pregame exercises, Josh Rutledge would likely man shortstop for the third straight game.(RotoWire, )

News: Tulowitzki (thigh) is out of the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Tulowitzki left Saturday's game in the first inning due to a thigh cramp, and will now miss his second consecutive contest as a result. Although the Rockies recently were graced by the return of Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Morneau (neck) was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday, while Tulo continues to sit out, leaving their offense in a tough spot. Josh Rutledge will make his second straight start at shortstop in place of Tulo.(RotoWire, )
