Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has started running using an antigravity treadmill and is also fielding ground balls.

Tulowitzki has not played a single game in the 2018 season and underwent surgery in April to remove bone spurs in both of his ankles.

Aledmys Diaz, who injured his ankle running to first base on May 6, has started a hitting progression as well as some light running, and Steve Pearce (oblique) is still not ready for baseball activities.

Starting pitching Marcus Stroman was placed on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder fatigue and is currently resting, but he is due in Dunedin on Thursday.
