In case anyone didn’t know what 27-year old righty swinging SS Troy Tulowitzki meant to the Rockies, they know now. He missed most of this season due to injury and the Rockies went straight into the tank, finishing a distant last place in the N.L. West. Tulowitzki played in only 47 games for the Rockies this year and he was 52 of 181 (.287 avg, .846 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 8 homers, 27 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He has now played in 744 games in his first seven years with the Rockies and he is 822 of 2,813 (.292 avg, .868 OPS) with 471 runs scored, 130 homers, 470 RBIs and 53 stolen bases. The Rockies need Tulowitzki to stay healthy if they are going to rebound in 2013.
