Tulowitzki continues rehab with Triple-A squad
ATLANTA -- Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will continue his rehab assignment Monday in Triple-A Colorado Springs' final game of the season, serving as the designated hitter. Tulowitzki will have Tuesday off and then move to Double-A Tulsa for Wednesday and Thursday.

Tulowitzki is recovering from surgery on June 21 that removed scar tissue from a nerve in his left groin. He was scheduled to play shortstop at Colorado Springs today, but Rockies manager Jim Tracy said Tulowitzki is sore.

"It's understandable because he's been kind of pushing it on a fairly regular basis," Tracy said

Tulowitzki is scheduled to play five innings at shortstop Wednesday and seven innings Thursday.

Tulowitzki isn't the only member of the Rockies playing Minor League rehab games. Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will pitch Wednesday for Grand Junction, the Rockies' Rookie League affiliate.

Tracy said De La Rosa is scheduled to throw 45-50 pitches.

"It's really encouraging, I think I've been doing this somewhat off and on over the past few weeks, to be able to walk out here and talk to you guys about significant people that are now getting close to making their way back after having lost them for a significant amount of time," Tracy said.
