Tulowitzki back in lineup, but being monitored

SAN FRANCISCO -- As was the Rockies' plan, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was back in the lineup Saturday against the Giants after being limited to a ninth-inning pinch-hit appearance Friday night. The Rockies kept him out of the starting lineup on Friday to rest his tight right quadriceps.

In the last six games, Tulowitzki has played a full game once, has sat out two full games and had one at-bat in another.

"We'll still monitor it, but I think he's feeling much better," manager Walt Weiss said. "We feel good about where he's at."
