Troy Tulowitzki

Played with Rockies from 2010-2015

Accumulated 25.6 WAR during the decade, per Baseball-Reference.com

First in on-base percentage (.382)

Second in batting average (.310)

Fourth in home runs (123)

Fourth in RBI (414)

Quick thought: Tulo’s time in Colorado will always be accompanied with “what if” questions because of injuries. When he was healthy, though, there were few players who could match his offensive and defensive abilities. Five All-Star appearances, two Gold Gloves and two Silver Sluggers were part of Tulo’s time this decade with the Rockies … as well as a clapping sound that Colorado fans will always associate with his name.

Most memorable moment: In September of 2010, Tulowitzki blasts 14 home runs from September 3-18, earning him back-to-back National League Player of the Week honors.
