Troy Tulowitzki with the great defensive play (GIF)

Unfortunately for Troy Tulowitzki and the Colorado Rockies, the franchise shortstop has struggled to stay healthy over the course of his career.

For years it was various leg injuries, then Tulo missed time in 2013 due to a broken rib. He insists he is healthy in 2014, and if the play he made on Tuesday night against the Marlins is any indication, he is right about that.


When Tulowitzki is right he is a rare talent because of the combination of offensive pop and elite defense that he brings. For now he is healthy, and this play shows the kind of defensive plays he can make when that’s the case.
