When we heard that Rockies star Troy Tulowitzki would miss the remainder of another lost and humiliating season with a hip injury, we weren't exactly shocked. After all, the All-Star shortstop has a reputation for being oft-injured. But we were surprised by how many times Tulo's been hurt. The Baseball Prospectus website lists a whopping 36 over the course of his career.

Some of the injuries were so minor Tulowtizki didn't miss any days or games. But the others have kept him on the shelf for well over 300 games since breaking into the majors -- and that total is rising. Continue to count up all 36 in a list featuring videos and Baseball Prospectus stats.
