Tulowitzki (calf) announced his retirement Thursday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Injuries have gotten the better of Tulowitzki recently -- he's appeared in just 71 games over the past three seasons -- prompting the veteran shortstop to call it quits after 13 seasons with the Rockies, Blue Jays and Yankees. Tulowitzki will finish his career with a .290/.361/.495 slash line and 225 home runs in 1291 games.
Tulowitzki (calf) remains at home while considering his options, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Tulowitzki recently hit a snag in his rehab due to a lingering calf issue. The veteran likely joined the Yankees in hopes of establishing himself as a useful piece prior to Didi Gregorius' return from Tommy John surgery, but he appeared in just five games before going down with an injury of his own. With Gregorius now back from the injured list, there's certainly no starting role available for Tulowitzki and possibly no bench role either. It's unclear if Tulowitzki's options extend all the way to retirement or simply to asking for his release to find a new opportunity. The former can't be ruled out, despite the fact that he's just 34 years old, as he's been battered by injuries in recent years, appearing in just 71 games over the last three seasons.
Tulowitzki (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.
Tulowitzki will take the place of Didi Gregorius (elbow) on the 60-day IL with Gregorius making his return to the 25-man roster after Tommy John surgery last year. Tulowitzki was sent home to take some days off from his rehab earlier this week and doesn't seem particularly close to returning to the majors.
Tulowitzki (calf) has been given a few days off from his rehab, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Tulowitzki seemed to be nearing a rehab assignment, but his progress has apparently stalled. Manager Aaron Boone told reporters the Yankees have sent the shortstop home for a few days to rest his lingering calf issue. Tulowitzki appeared in just five games this season before going down with injury, and this latest development indicates he's still a ways off from a return to the field.
Tulowitzki (calf) is "pretty much over the injury," and the team is now discussing when he will begin a rehab assignment,Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Tulowitzki took batting practice and fielded grounders about two weeks ago and has had no further setbacks. As a result, he should begin a rehab assignment soon, which will clarify his timeline for a return to the active roster.
Tulowitzki told the Yankees he's willing to play different positions when he's able to return from his calf injury, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
With Didi Gregorius progressing from his elbow injury, Tulowitzki reportedly told the club he's willing to play different positions, and he took grounders at third base in addition to his reps at shortstop Monday. With Gio Urshela and DJ LeMahieu each performing well at the dish, however, the veteran might have a tough time regularly breaking into the Yankees' infield rotation when he does get healthy enough to rejoin the big club. Tulowitzki has resumed baseball activities, but there's still no timetable for his return.
Tulowitzki (calf) took batting practice and fielded grounders Monday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Tulowitzki (calf) was pulled from a minor-league game at High-A Tampa with left calf tightness Wednesday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.
The Yankees labeled his removal as precautionary, but it's nonetheless concerning the issue is with the same calf in which he suffered the strain in early April. The 34-year-old's status should receive some additional clarity after he is further evaluated.

Tulowitzki singled in his first and only at-bat before exiting. The reason for his removal remains unclear at the moment.

Tulowitzki (calf) is expected to play in rehab games at extended spring training in a couple of days, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Miguel Andujar (shoulder) is scheduled to play third base in an extended spring training game Friday, and it doesn't sound like Tulowitzki is too far behind him. While the veteran shortstop is trending in the right direction, he remains without a timetable for his return at the moment; Tulowitzki will likely play a few games at extended spring training before being reevaluated.

Tulowitzki (calf) took batting practice and ran on the field Tuesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
This marks another step forward for Tulowitzki, who hadn't run on flat ground since suffering the calf injury, per Adler. He's obviously trending in the right direction but remains without a firm timetable for a return.
Tulowitzki (calf) is improving and took some swings Friday, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Tulowitzki suffered a calf strain during his fifth game of the season. He's making progress towards a return but remains without a clear timetable.
Tulowitzki (calf), who was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Thursday, said he doesn't know a timeline for his return to the Yankees' active roster, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Tulowitzki felt discomfort in his left calf during an at-bat in Wednesday's game against the Tigers and was pulled from the contest, with manager Aaron Boone relaying afterward that the veteran would require an IL stint. The Yankees plan to have Tulowitzki limit his activity for at least the next few days before he's re-evaluated by team doctors, at which point a firm timeline could be established. While Tulowitzki is sidelined, Gleyber Torres is expected to shift over to shortstop on a full-time basis, while Tyler Wade and recent callup Thairo Estrada could share duties at the keystone.
The Yankees placed Tulowitzki (calf) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
To little surprise, Tulowitzki will become the 11th resident on the Yankees' injured list after sustaining a low-grade left calf strain in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers. While the fact that Tulowitzki's calf injury isn't a significant one is encouraging, the 34-year-old is well established as a slow healer at this point, making it more likely than not that he misses more than the 10-day minimum. The Yankees will likely use a combination of Gleyber Torres and Tyler Wade to cover for Tulowitzki at shortstop.
Manager Aaron Boone said Tulowitzki (calf) will "almost certainly" land on the injured list, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Tulowitzki exited Wednesday's loss to the Tigers after the third inning with what is being called a low-grade left calf strain, and while nothing is official, the veteran infielder will likely be placed on the IL as a result. Look for Gleyber Torres and Tyler Wade to cover the middle of the infield in Tulowitzki's absence, while Thairo Estrada will likely be summoned from the minors to take his spot on the active roster (once his move to the IL is official).
Tulowitzki left Wednesday's game against the Tigers after the third inning with a left calf strain, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
Curry says it's unclear if he will end up on the IL, but considering he is going to a local hospital for further tests, it seems likely that he will end up on the shelf. The Yankees can hardly afford another injury, but Gleyber Torres should man shortstop while Tyler Wade plays second base while Tulowitzki is sidelined. Thairo Estrada would likely be summoned from the minors as a corresponding move if Tulowitzki hits the IL.
