FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: SURPRISE! TROY TULOWITZKI PLACED ON THE DL AGAIN

As sure as the sun coming up in the morning, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will land on the disabled list at some point during any given season.  Once again that point was proven correct as the Blue Jays placed Tulo on the 15-day DL early Saturday with a quad strain.  Darwin Barney is expected to start in Tulo's place but this is just a reminder of how the All Star shortstop continues to prove he is one of the most injury prone players in the game.  It was that annual problem that made owning Tulo extremely volatile and that was even during his monster first round draft pick days with the Colorado Rockies.  Years and years of injuries now have robbed Tulo of some of his skills as he no longer runs, his average is down to a pathetic .204, and his K rate is going through the roof at 25.8 percent.  When you see a veteran hitter go through such a rise in his K rate, alarms go off in terms of him not being able to catch up to fastballs like he once did.  That looks to be what is happening now with Tulo who has a solid 8 home runs but he has done nothing much else.  We have advised against drafting Tulo for years and now he is dropping to the bottom of daily mixed league shortstop starters.  It is getting very disturbing now with the veteran at this stage of his career.
