Tulo pushing to return on Friday
DENVER -- Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki took batting practice at Coors Field on Sunday, and is pushing to begin a Minor League rehab assignment on Wednesday and return to the club in Detroit on Friday -- the first day he is eligible to come off of the 15-day disabled list.

Tulowitzki, who has not played since May 30 because of a left-groin strain, said he will come to Coors Field on Monday, with the team off, and take some swings and undergo further treatment.

He said "I'm going to push" to return on Friday, but the team's medical staff is being cautious, making sure Tulowitzki takes his comeback steps in the proper order so that they can lessen the possibility of him re-injuring himself.
