Colorado Rockies All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo surgery on his left groin area in Philadelphia on Thursday, reports Jake Kaplan of MLB.com. Colorado doesn’t have a clear timetable for Tulowitzki’s return at this time, as the club said more will become known following the procedure.
Tulowitzki is dealing with some sort of tear in his groin area, though the injury has not been classified as a hernia. Rockies manager Jim Tracy told reporters that the 27-year-old is dealing with "some scar tissue that is built up over a nerve."
Tracy noted that this is something Tulowitzki’s been dealing with for the past year, and the Rockies are hopeful doctors are going to relieve the issue which will allow him move beyond these problems.
Tulowitzki has played in 47 games for the Rockies this season. Over his 181 at-bats, he has maintained a line of .287/.360/.486 with 18 extra-base hits and 27 RBIs.
