Blue Jays’ Tulowitzki is back
By THE SPORTS XCHANGE
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki returned to the lineup on Friday after missing three weeks because of injuries.
He is batting seventh and playing shortstop in the game at Tampa Bay.
Tulowitzki had not played since Sept. 12, when he suffered a cracked scapula and bruised upper-back muscles as a result of a collision with teammate Kevin Pillar.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Tulowitzki will get Saturday off, and then will play in Sunday’s game, which is the final game of the regular season.
Tulowitzki had a homer, two doubles and a walk in six plate appearances during a simulated game Friday against a pair of minor league pitchers.
Toronto acquired Tulowitzki from Colorado on July 28 in a multi-player deal. He’s is hitting .232 since the trade, but the Blue Jays are 30-8 with him in the starting lineup.
