Tulowitzki (heel) began ramping up his activities Tuesday after resting during the first week of July, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Tulowitzki rested on the recommendation of the Blue Jays' training staff, but it doesn't sound like it was a result of any setback in his recovery from spring surgery to remove bone spurs from his right heel. The veteran shortstop has already began a running progression and has been hitting and fielding for a while, but it's unclear when he'll be given the green light to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Any rehab stint would likely last close to the maximum 20 days, given that Tulowitzki hasn't faced live pitching in a competitive setting since last July.
Tulowitzki (heel) said he hopes to return sometime this season, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Tulowitzki is slowly working his way back from heel surgery that he underwent at the beginning of April. He remains without a timetable for his return.
Tulowitzki (heel) is scheduled to begin his running progression Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Tulowitzki has been hitting and running on an anti-gravity treadmill with no issues recently, but he's just been cleared to begin a running program. Barring any setbacks as he ramps up his running, the veteran could be cleared to return to game action at extended spring training in the coming weeks. In the meantime, Gio Urshela will continue to man shortstop while Tulowitzki and Aledmys Diaz (ankle) are sidelined.
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.
Tulowitzki (heel) started running on an antigravity treadmill, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Tulowitzki is also taking grounders and hopes to progress to live batting practice sometime next week. He's been on the shelf all season after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in both of his heels at the beginning of April. He won't be eligible to return until the end of May, and it seems likely that he'll require additional time on the disabled list given his lack of progress thus far. Gio Urshela and Richard Urena are splitting duties while both Aledmys Diaz (ankle) and Tulowitzki are sidelined.
