DENVER (AP) - All-Star Troy Tulowitzki is having a season that could net him some silver and gold.
The Colorado Rockies' star is on pace to become the first player to lead NL shortstops in both slugging percentage and fielding percentage since Jay Bell did it for Pittsburgh in 1993, according
to STATS LLC.
Tulowitzki leads NL shortstops with a .985 fielding percentage and a .567 slugging clip. He is the leading contender for the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards given annually to the league's top fielder and hitter at each position.
And he's done all this despite missing 33 games with a broken wrist and needing some time upon his return to regain his sweet stroke and his power swing.
