Troy Tulowitzki (SS)

Colorado Rockies - 99% owned

(?)
Bats: R, Throws: R

Troy Tulowitzki had himself a day on Sunday, going 2-for-5 with a three-run blast. He is quietly having another productive year.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo started the season in a slump, and fantasy owners have yet to forgive him for it. However, he hit his ninth homer of the season on Sunday and brought his OPS up to an solid .847. Tulowitzki has been the subject of multiple trade rumors, and it will be interesting to see what happens as we approach the trade deadline. With the shallow shortstop pool in fantasy leagues, owners are finally getting the value that they payed for on draft day, and hopefully a trade will only help that, not hurt it.

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts during Thursday's contest against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with two singles and two runs scored against the Giants on Friday. He also walked and struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo was one of six Rockies batters that had a multi-hit effort on Friday night as they rocked Giants SP Tim Hudson. While the homers haven't been as high as you might expect (four in June, eight overall), the batting average certainly has, with Tulo hitting .383 in June and .317 overall. He's a top-three option at SS.

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-5 with a single, a run scored, and three strikeouts on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo has had a short stretch of subpar games lately, despite getting a hit in all but one of his last seven he's batting .231 during the stretch with nothing but singles. Tulowitzki is still batting an excellent .353 on the month, so he'll likely bounce back soon, but keep an eye on him just in case.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with a single, a walk, and a three-run homer against the Cardinals on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo has been heating up recently, with four straight multi-hit games, and three homers in his last five. The seventh homer has him in the top-5 in the category at the SS position, and that combined with a .310 average (2nd at SS, top-20 overall) makes him a top fantasy asset.

Troy Tulowitzki has been heating back up at the plate recently and he had another terrific game against the Dodgers on Wednesday. Tulowitzki went 2-for-5 with a home run, one run scored, and five runners batted in. He also walked twice.

Fantasy Impact: Over his last seven games Tulowitzki has hit a scorching .407 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and eight runs scored. Despite going through a dry spell he still remains the top short stop in all of fantasy baseball.

Troy Tulowitzki went nuts against Cole Hamels and the Phillies on Friday night, going 4-for-4 and hitting two solo-shot homers.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo has always been regarded as one of the best shortstops in the game when he is healthy, and tonight was a perfect example why. Tulowitzki has been underperforming by his standards thus far this season, but perhaps a monster night like this one is exactly what he needs to snap out of his funk. After tonight's heroics he is now batting .285/.303/.456 with four homers and 20 RBIs on the year.

Troy Tulowitzki was looking to turn it around on Wednesday against the Reds, but he was unable too. Tulowitzki went 0-for-3 and scored a run and walked once.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki admitted recently that he needed to play better but his struggles have continued. Over his last 15 games he is hitting a paltry .189 with zero home runs, eight RBI, and four runs scored. If you want to trade Tulowitzki, now may not be the best time during a long cold streak. He will eventually turn it around as he is simply too good to struggle for a long amount of time.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-5 with two singles and a RBI against the Giants on Saturday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Tulo started this season off pretty well, batting .308 with a couple homers, but has completely fallen off in May, hitting a mere .234. The superstar shortstop has never turned in a bad season, with his only issue being health in the past, but this will be the exception if the trends continue. Keep Tulowitzki active, but don't hope for a resurgence anytime soon.

Tulo was out for the 2nd straight game with a mild quad strain on Sunday. Leg injuries have always been a cause for concern in Tulowitzki's case, as they have plagued him throughout his career.

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully the rest will help to get Tulo healthy, and on the right track. Prior to the injury he was really struggling with a 29:2 K/BB ratio, a horrendous number for any player. The high draft day price has far from paid itself off, even in a shallow pool of SS eligible players. With the injury concerns, and lack of production, Tulo is rapidly losing fantasy value. Owners should sell high on Tulowitzki after any signs of life.

Troy Tulowitzki picks up two hits

Troy Tulowitzki got bumped up to second in the lineup on Wednesday as the Rockies try to give their struggling offense a jolt. As a result Tulowitzki went 2-for-5 with both hits being singles.

Fantasy Impact: The lineup shift did not help the offense as the Rockies lost 2-to-1 in 11 innings. Over his last 10 games Tulowitzki is batting a healthy .314 but has only driven in one run and hasn't hit a home run. The good average is a positive sign and soon that should translate into producing runs. Tulowitzki remains an elite option in fantasy.

Troy Tulowitzki continued his slump at the plate in game one of a Thursday double-header against the Diamondbacks. He went 0-for-3 on the game and is hitting just .248 over his last 10 games.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki is prone to go through slumps like every body else, so this should not worry fantasy owners. The Rockies have a great offense and provides Tulowitzki with ample amount of opportunities to be a major run producer. Expect him to turn it around very soon.

Troy Tulowitzki smacks a double

On a night where the Colorado Rockies offense failed to show up, Troy Tulowitzki was able to go 2-for-4 with a run and a double, his eleventh of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki has slowed down a bit from his hot start but he is still batting .308. The big thing is that he is still healthy and has not shown any signs of wear and tear. The Rockies are one of the best hitting teams in baseball and Tulowitzki will continue to put up excellent numbers hitting the middle of it.

Troy Tulowitzki made his way to the plate four times on Wednesday against the Padres and he went 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki has cooled off a little after his sizzling start, but he is still batting .321 for the season. As hot as Tulowitzki has been at the plate, he has only homered once and driven in eight runs. As long as he continues to get hits the RBI and HR should start rolling in. He is the premier SS for as long as he is healthy.

Troy Tulowitzki returned to the Rockies lineup Monday after a planned day off. Tulowitzki had the only RBI of the game, a 2-0 win for the Rockies over the Giants in San Francisco. Tulowitzki's RBI single to left scored Charlie Blackmon in the 4th inning, spoiling the Giants' World Series championship home opener.

Fantasy Impact: Besides the game winning hit, Troy Tulowitzki struck out swinging, struck out looking and flied out to center. The Rockies shortstop is now batting .370 in the young season.

Daniel Descalso got the start with Tulowitzki resting and committed two costly errors at shortstop. Descalso went 1-for-4 at the plate, a infield single, scoring on D.J. LeMahieu triple.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki day of rest was disturbed when Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins allowed Dexter Fowler to hit a 415 foot home run to give the Cubs the lead. Troy Tulowitzki pinch hit leading off the bottom of the ninth inning and struck out swinging.

Troy Tulowitzki had two hits in four at bats helping the Colorado Rockies win their home opener. Tulo is now hitting .444 on the young season.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki is picking up where he left off last season when he batted .417 in 163 AB at Coors Field. He seems to be intent on being one of the best who ever played the game, he only needs to stay healthy.

With trade talks on the back burner for now, Troy Tulowitzki had a good spring camp. The 30-year-old Tulo hit .381 this spring with 5 HR and 12 RBI in 42 AB. Tulowitzki hit for power, made spin moves at SS, and ran from first to third base comfortably during Cactus League play. Last August surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left hip seems far away. (Source: Denver Post )

Fantasy Impact: Troy Tulowitzki, the best SS in the game, when healthy, hit 21 HR's in just 91 games in 2014. Tulo has averaged only 88 games per season since 2012. If a healthy Tulo can play in 140+ games in 2015 he can put up MVP-type numbers. As long as Tulo is healthy he's a must-start in all fantasy formats whether the Rockies are home or on the road.

 

Troy Tulowitzki homers twice

Troy Tulowitzki continued his torrid pace in the Cactus League by going 3-5 with 2 home runs, 3 RBI, and 3 R on Wednesday. His spring average is now sitting at a scorching hot .385 and he has driven in 11 runners with 5 home runs.

Fantasy Impact: This is exactly what every fantasy owner wants to see. Tulowitzki is healthy and is on fire at the plate. There were questions before about what round he should go in for fantasy drafts but that question should now have an answer. Expect to see Tulowitzki go off all draft boards in the late-first to early-second rounds.

Troy Tulowitzki goes deep again

Tulowitzki hit his third HR yesterday. His HR was a no doubter that went well past the left field wall for 2 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The highly talented SS has 3 HR, 8 RBI with a .345/.400/.792 stat line in 10 spring games. Tulowitzki insists that he is healthy and is focusing on playing more games this season. I wouldn't bank on 150+ games played but don't let him slip too far.

Troy Tulowitzki played shortstop and went 1-1 with a solo home run and a walk on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: It is great to see Tulowitzki not only playing, but taking the field at shortstop. He will continue to be eased along this spring but barring any setbacks, he is again a legitimate first or second round fantasy selection.

Troy Tulowitzki took the field for the first time this spring on Monday. He went 0-2 at the plate, leaving two runners stranded, but the most important thing is that he is healthy.

Fantasy Impact: Assuming Tulowitzki doesn't have a setback, he appears all systems go for Opening Day. Last season Tulowitzki was limited to 91 games, but he mashed in those 91 games hitting for a .340 average with 21 home runs and 52 RBI. Be cautious with selecting Tulowitzki this season. He will provide elite numbers as long as he is healthy, so if you draft him, make sure you grab a solid backup as well.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki has been a huge injury risk in fantasy baseball over the past few seasons and this season is no different. He is recovering from hip surgery and is expected to be ready for Opening Day. Tulowitzki still offers first-round production, however be familiar with the risk he presents if you pick him.

With the Red Sox and Mets fading in negotiations with the star SS, the Yankees check the price on Tulowitzki. (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although the price would be steep, the Yankees do need a huge bat and Tulowitzki is a top-five talent when healthy. In the best case scenario for the Yankees, they would shift Didi Gregorious to 2B and Tulowitzki to SS, giving them an elite fielding combination as well. Tulowitzki would easily hit 30 home runs in the Bronx and regain his .900+ OPS, but health is always the issue with Tulowitzki; another issue for the Yankees is the price to obtain the superstar.
