Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has been removed from today's first game following a collision with Kevin Pillar. The injury occurred on a Didi Gregorius pop out in the second inning:
The severity of Tulowitzki's injury remains unknown. Troy did walk off of the field under his own power, but the fact that he left the game does not seem like a good sign. We are left to play armchair doctor until the Blue Jays provide a further update:
The options on Tulowitzki, armchair doctor edition: Wind knocked out of him, stinger, something back-related, or a poisonous dart.— Bruce Arthur (@bruce_arthur) September 12, 2015
If further updates are reported, we will be sure to pass the information along. From all of us at BlueBird Banter, get better soon Tulo.
