Report: Troy Tulowitzki to see doctor
Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will visit another doctor on Monday as he tries to determine the cause for ongoing pain and discomfort in his left groin area, the Denver Post reported Friday.
Tulowitzki will fly to Philadelphia and have his groin checked by Dr. Bill Meyers, a surgeon who performed sports hernia surgery on Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton last November, according to the Post.
Rockies trainer Keith Dugger told the Post the team is unsure if Tulowitzki has a sports hernia, but two MRIs on the groin didn't pinpoint the problem.
"We just want to look deeper into the MRI findings and make sure we know what's going on," Dugger said.
Tulowitzki was injured May 30 against the Houston Astros, pulling up after running out an infield grounder. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list the next day.
Tulowitzki took himself out of a rehab start Wednesday at Triple-A Colorado Springs after feeling not quite right.
In other Rockies injury news, Jorge De La Rosa will have his left elbow re-examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on the left-hander last June, MLB.com reported.
De La Rosa's rehab has been interrupted by left forearm tightness and fluid in his elbow.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
