Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will begin the rehab assignment for his groin surgery on Friday at Double-A Tulsa, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post:

Troy Tulowitzki didn’t need a doctor’s permission slip. His workout Wednesday afternoon at Citi Field was proof that his left groin checked out fine in Philadelphia, clearing the way for him to begin a rehab assignment Friday at Double-A Tulsa.

Tulowitzki, who has been out since May 30 with a groin injury that required surgery in late June, received the final go-ahead to begin his assignment from his doctor yesterday in Philadelphia. Following the good news Tulowitzki took fielding and batting practice, showing no visible signs of discomfort.

Scheduled to play the first five innings at shortstop for the Tulsa Drillers on Friday, Tulo will then rest on Saturday and be back in the line-up on Sunday. It is not expected that the two-time All-Star will be activated prior to September 1.

The 27-year-old has played in just forty-seven games this season, batting .287/.360/.486 with eight home runs.
