It is said that Tulo will be monitored by the club for the next week or so before a timetable for his return can be established. According to Sportsnet’s Megan Robinson, Troy will speak to the media tomorrow.
For those of you wondering what exactly a scapula is, it can also be referred to as a shoulder blade, which if continued to be used could seriously affect the way he plays game not just offensively, but defensively as well.
The injury occurred as a result of a collision with center fielder Kevin Pillar.
