I picked Tulo off of waivers.... Nice. I'll let him sit and wait on my team for a few weeks and hope this is a 2 week stint. After that if he's hot for 2 weeks I'll trade him. Keeping him on the DL and not dropping him could really pay off value wise in a month from now.
The Disabled List Informer wrote:...The Psoas (pronounced "so-ass") Major is a hip flexor that originates in the Lumbar spine and courses down through the Pelvis to insert on the lesser trochanter of the Femur (thigh bone). This muscle flexes the hip, and also acts to flex the trunk towards the thigh when the leg is fixed.
In an unrelated but interesting fact, the Psoas Major is also the Tenderloin cut of a cow. Now you know...

May 1 Tulowitzki still isn't sure if he injured his quadriceps or hip flexor, the Denver Post reports.
Recommendation: He underwent an MRI on Wednesday and the results weren't immediately available. Tulowitzki will probably be placed on the 15-day DL prior to Saturday's game, because the Rockies need to activate a starting pitcher. Clint Barmes should receive the bulk of the playing time at shortstop in Tulowitzki's absence, with support from Jon Herrera and Omar Quintanilla.
I read that too, but what's the point in waiting and holding him out longer
The Rocky Mountain News reports that Troy Tulowitzki has suffered a torn tendon in his left quadricep and could be out until at least the All Star break.
Not exactly what the struggling Rockies were hoping to hear. Tulowitzki underwent an MRI on Wednesday and the Rockies confirmed he suffered a tear in the quad near the hip area. His agent said that "with the help of God, he will be back in two months." Clint Barmes will take over duties at short stop, with Omar Quintanilla and Jonathan Herrera platooning at second until Jeff Baker is healthy. Source: Rocky Mountain News
