Thursday Recap

The Denver Post reported Troy Tulowitzki will miss 4-6 weeks after breaking a rib in Thursday’s game. Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler also left the game due to injuries, but both players are not expected to miss much time. The Rockies are expected to call up 24-year-old Josh Rutledge, who hit five homers and stole five bases earlier in the season before being sent down to Triple-A. Rutledge should be an add in all leagues if he does get called up.
