Rockies’ rest SS Tulowitzki vs Miami

Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was rested Sunday

against Miami after being bothered by soreness in his rib area.

Rockies’ manager Walt Weiss said Tulowitzki was being kept out

of the lineup as a precaution. Weiss was unsure when Tulowitzki

suffered the injury Saturday during a swing, but he remained in the

game.

Weiss says ”he’s OK, he’s a little sore” before Sunday’s game

at Marlins Park.

Weiss added he wanted to take Tulowitzki out for a pinch-hitter

in his last at-bat Saturday, but the shortstop talked him out if

it.
