Insight: The Rockies have been calling Tulowitzki's injury a quad cramp since he suffered it on Saturday while trying to beat out a hit. Injuries have been the main issue for Tulowitzki in his career -- he averaged just 110 games over the previous four seasons. Josh Rutledge will see regular playing time until Tulo returns.

Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.
Insight: A cramp in Tulowitzki's left quad forced him out of Saturday's game and he will miss his third straight game. Any day without the best hitter in the NL (.340, 21 HR, 52 RBI, 71 runs, 1.035 OPS) is a disaster for fantasy owners, especially for games at Coors Field. Replacement Josh Rutledge has gone 3-for-8 with a homer and two RBI in the past two games.
