Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki will miss the rest of the regular season due to a small crack in his left shoulder, he told reporters on Saturday.

Tulowitzki said the Blue Jays are hoping for a return in 2–3 weeks, but the team isn’t targeting a specific date.

“I feel a lot better. I mean, I can lift my arm now. Before I couldn’t even move my arm,” Tulowitzki said. “Every day I feel like I’m making strides. I’m definitely headed in the right direction.”

Tulowitzki sustained the injury when he collided with centerfielder Kevin Pillar in a game against the Yankees on Sept. 12. He went back to his left to catch a shallow fly ball, and Pillar ran right into his spine, causing Tulowitzki to fall to the ground.

X-rays initially came back negative, but an MRI later revealed a small crack in his scapula.

Toronto acquired the 30-year-old Tulowitzki from Colorado at July's trade deadline for shortstop Jose Reyes and three pitching prospects.
