Rockies | Troy Tulowitzki undergoes medical procedure

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 11:32:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (hip) underwent a medical procedure Monday, July 28, that involved needle therapy in his injured left hip flexor, and he said he'll return to movement activities Wednesday, July 30.
