Tulo exits with an injury
Troy Tulowitzki cracked the bone in his left shoulder blade on Saturday afternoon when he collided on a pop-up at Yankee Stadium with Blue Jays’ center fielder Kevin Pillar.
I really feel for Kevin Pillar in this case, who had this to say after the injury about the fact that he ran into the Blue Jays’ new super star shortstop:
"“I couldn’t feel any worse about it. It’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever experienced on the field. I’ve been injured myself, but to injure someone else is a nightmare you never want to have happen on the field — especially a guy like him, who is so important to this team. A play that could have easily been avoided.”"
Obviously, it’s not Pillar’s fault — and Tulo may be out for quite a while, especially considering the time of year and how close the Jays are to the playoffs. This isn’t one of those nagging Tulo injuries that Rockies fans know so well, either, but rather an unlikely and unfortunate situation that could’ve happened to anybody.
Poor Tulo. Poor Jays. Guess we’ll see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
