Tulo, De La Rosa making progress in rehab

DENVER -- Troy Tulowitzki resumed his rehab assignment today and went 1-for-2 with a walk while playing five innings at shortstop at Triple-A Colorado Springs. He is scheduled to play seven innings Monday at shortstop in the final game of the Pacific Coast League's regular season and then be re-evaluated.

Tulowitzki played three games there last week, one as the DH, as he works his way back from surgery June 21 that removed scar tissue from a nerve in his left groin area. Tulowitzki strained the groin May 30, the last time he played for the Rockies.

Meanwhile, left-hander Jorge De La Rosa had no arm soreness after throwing a 45-pitch simulated game Saturday. He is scheduled to make a rehab start Wednesday against Ogden for Rookie league team Grand Junction, in their second-last game of the regular season.

De La Rosa will parachute into a pennant race, since Grand Junction enters Sunday in second place, 1 1/2 games behind Ogden in the North Division of the Pioneer League.

He underwent Tommy John surgery in June 2011. He twice had rehab assignments halted this season due to elbow soreness and forearm tightness.
