Tulowitzki (heel) has progressed to hitting BP and has a follow-up with surgeon Thomas Clanton next week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Tulowitzki had already progressed to running and fielding, so hitting BP is a new step in his rehab. It would seem that the next major step will be playing in games at extended spring training and then progressing to a rehab assignment with one of the Blue Jays' minor-league affiliates. Gio Urshela and Richard Urena are splitting duties at shortstop while Tulowitzki and Aledmys Diaz (left ankle sprain) are sidelined.
