"After we got the X-ray and the MRI and it came back all right, I felt I was going to be in a good spot today," Tulowitzki said before Sunday's series finale vs. the Giants. "It was a little bit of a scare for me just because of my history. Sometimes when it happens, you think the worst."
Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger, who made sure Tulowitzki still felt good after taking batting practice and ground balls, said a shank, or metal insert, was placed in Tulowitzki's shoe so he doesn't rise as high on his toes.
