Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was forced to leave Sunday's game at Arizona due to a strained left shoulder, the team announced. He's considered day to day and will be re-evaluated after the game.

Tulowitzki is hitting .308/.394/.603 with six homers and 22 RBI this season, in addition to sporting his always-stellar defense at short. Needless to say, losing him for any amount of time would be a rather large blow to the Rockies -- who entered Sunday having lost five of their last seven.

Unfortunately, Tulowitzki is no stranger to the disabled list. He played in only 47 games last season, 122 in 2010 and 101 in 2008.

Jonathan Herrera took over for Tulowitzki at shortstop and figures to see the largest increase of playing time if Tulowitzki is forced to miss any time.
