PITTSBURGH — Cross your Fingers. Hope for the best. Another Rockies player has been injured.

It’s not just any player.

All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the fourth inning Saturday with an apparent leg injury

The team is calling it a cramp in the muscle of his left tensor fascia latae.

Tulowitzki was running out a ground ball and grabbed his upper left quad/hip area. He did not return and was replaced by Josh Rutledge.

There has yet to be an announcement on how serious the injury is.

The 29-year-old is having a career season. He leads the majors with a .342 batting average. Tulo also has 21 home runs, 107 hits, 52 RBIs and 71 runs.

This would be a bad time for the Rockies to lose one of the best players in baseball. Colorado is currently 40-56 and 13 games back in the NL West.

It’s also the worst record in the National League.
