DENVER -- Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and center fielder Dexter Fowler were back in the Rockies' lineup on Thursday. Tulowitzki was hit with a Dillon Gee pitch on the left elbow in the first game Tuesday and pinch-hit in the second game of a doubleheader. Tulowitzki said he could have played Wednesday had the Rockies-Mets game not been postponed by snow and cold, but that the day off was good for his elbow.

Fowler fouled a ball off his left foot Sunday at San Diego. He didn't play in Tuesday's first game and struck out as a pinch-hitter in the second game. Fowler said his foot was "a little sore" Wednesday "but nothing I can't play through." Before Thursday's game, Fowler said his foot was "still a little sore, but it doesn't matter."
