Update: Tulowitzki left the game with a cramp in his left thigh muscle, the Rockies announced. Doesn't sound like anything serious, which is good news for everyone.

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki exited Saturday's game after running out a ground ball in the fourth inning. He pulled up lame and was grabbing at his upper left leg/quad area. Tulowitzki walked off the field under his own power and was pulled between innings.

Here's the play:

Tulowitzki has had more than his fair share of injury problems over the years. He missed time with a groin issue earlier this year and spent a few days on the shelf with a left hip problem back in 2011. A left quad strain cost him two months back in 2008.

The 29-year-old Tulowitzki came into Saturday's game leading the league in batting average (.342), on-base percentage (.434) and slugging percentage (.607). He's also hit 20 home runs and was an All-Star for the fourth time.

The Rockies have not yet released an update on Tulowitzki, who has seen his name pop-up in trade rumors as the club has fallen out of contention.
