Troy Tulowitzki had a lost 2012 season for the Colorado Rockies

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.

    Something has been running through my mind alot lately. Tulo is not the physical model for shortstops such as Ozzie Smith, Barry Larken, etc. He is much larger and I believe the smaller bodies fare better at shortstop, what with all the movement and darting back and forth. He can do it but his injury record is unfortunate, especially when you consider this is the “young” part of his career. Tulo is built more like the Mike Schmidts amd Brooks Robinsons of the past. Why not move him to third in 2013 and use Josh Rutledge at short?

    I like Tulowitzki body wise to a lot like Cal Ripken Jr. was when he played. He started out at SS and converted to 3B without much of a problem. I agree with you and think that would be a good idea for both Tulo and Rutledge’s futures.
