ARLINGTON -- Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki returned to Denver on Friday and did some walking for roughly 25 minutes after undergoing surgery to remove scar tissue from his left groin Thursday in Philadelphia.

Tulowitzki hasn't played since May 30 and will likely miss eight more weeks.

In other injury news:

• Right-hander Juan Nicasio, recovering from a left knee strain that he suffered May 22, threw 60 pitches on Friday. His next step will be facing hitters next week.
