Troy Tulowitzki will continue playing in Arizona during the final week of the season, but it won't be with the Rockies.

The two-time all-star shortstop hit a home run and played six innings in an instructional league game Monday. He received multiple chances defensively, and even though he failed to make a backhanded play, his surgically repaired left groin held up, marking another positive step in his recovery.

"It went well," Tulowitzki said.
