Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki walked through the clubhouse at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick with his left elbow unwrapped, and it was surprisingly normal in color and closer in size to his right elbow Monday morning.
Tulowitzk was smoked on the elbow by former teammate Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning of Sunday's Indians-Rockies game. Tulowitzki said he will not be in the lineup for Monday afternoon's game against the Mariners and isn't sure if he'll play in Cactus League games against the Mariners Tuesday and Wednesday. However, he doesn't expect to miss the regular-season opener Friday against the Astros at Minute Maid Park.
"I'm getting treatment, icing it, and they're trying to massage out some of the inflammation," Tulowitzki said. "I've been hit by a pitch before. It's nothing more than that. I'll be good to go. I'm not going to miss any [regular-season] time.
