The Colorado Rockies placed shortstop Troy Tulowitzki on the disabled list Tuesday with a left hip flexor strain.

Tulowitzki left Saturday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates with a cramp in his quadriceps and had missed two games since then before the team made the announcement before Tuesday night's matchup with the Washington Nationals.

The 29-year-old Tulowitzki, considered a National league MVP candidate this season, is leading the NL with a .340 batting average, a .432 on-base percentage and a .603 slugging percentage. He has 21 home runs and a major league-leading 71 runs scored in 91 games this season.

Tulowitzki is all too familiar with the disabled list, limited to 690 of a possible 972 regular-season games from 2008 through 2013 because of wrist, groin, thumb and quad injuries. The last time he played 130 games or more in a season was 2011
