Tulo homers in Arizona instructional league game
PHOENIX -- Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hit a home run on Monday in an Arizona Instructional League game, as he continued to test his surgically repaired left groin. However, manager Jim Tracy could not say whether Tulowitzki will play in the final two regular-season games against the D-backs.

Tulowitzki last played on May 30 and underwent surgery on June 23. Although he played several games in Triple-A and Double-A, Tulowitkzi was not fully confident after those rehab stints to return to the active roster.

The three-game series against the D-backs, which will finish the regular season, is Tulowitzki's last chance to play a Major League game before 2013. It's not clear if he'll push it, or if the Rockies will allow it.

"He did fine, that's my understanding," Tracy said. "He hit a home run -- a long home run. He did have one play that he felt strongly he should have made. But all I wanted to hear was he did not have any type of discomfort or pain in trying to make the play.

That's what you look forward to hearing after having your guy being out as long as he's been out. It has more to do with mental peace of mind more than anything physically."
