Tulowitzki plays catch for first time since injury
TORONTO (AP) Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki played catch Tuesday for the first time since suffering a broken left shoulder blade 10 days ago, but there's still no timetable for his return to the lineup.
''The pain has died down and I feel better each and every day,'' Tulowitzki said.
Tulowitzki has been sidelined since colliding with teammate Kevin Pillar during the first game of a Sept. 12 doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. His next steps will be to try making throws on the run and resume hitting.
The five-time All-Star, who throws and bats right-handed, visited a specialist in Boston last week. He rejoined the team Friday and continues to receive treatment from team trainers.
Acquired from Colorado on July 28, Tulowitzki is batting .232 with five homers and 17 RBIs in 39 games since joining Toronto. Overall this season, he has a .278 average with 17 homers and 70 RBIs.
