Troy Tulowitzki Broken Rib - Out 4-6 Weeks

UPDATE: Tulo did indeed break a rib yesterday and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break.  This is a huge blow to the Rockies lineup and to your fantasy roster.  SS is the hardest position to replace, especially a player of this caliber!  Jonathan Herrera should slide over to SS for a while and he is hitting .293 over the last 3 seasons in 164 ABs when playing SS.  Josh Rutledge will most likely be called up and get playing time as well, but being demoted once already this season, he better prove he is ready for the big time!

Not only did the Colorado Rockies lose to the Washington Nationals today, but they might be without 3 of their best hitters for a while.  Troy Tulowitzki left the game after making a diving play, Carlos Gonzalez got hit with a line drive while in the on deck circle, but all news on that is positive, and Dexter Fowler injured his hand.  All 3 guys are impact players so monitor this situation VERY closely!
