A quiet Monday night game against Sacramento at Security Service Field just got a whole lot more interesting for Sky Sox fans.

Early Sunday evening, the Colorado Rockies announced that center fielder Dexter Fowler (bone bruise, right hand) and All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (fractured right rib) will begin rehabilitation assignments in Colorado Springs on Monday.

The Denver Post is reporting that Fowler will play seven innings and Tulowitzki will get two at-bats. They will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

The Rockies are 7-15 without Tulowitski, who has not played since June 13.

Fowler has been on the disabled list since June 26.

Tulowitzki, 28, was voted in as the starting shortstop in the 2013 All-Star Game. It's his third selection in the past four seasons.

This will be his fifth appearance with the Sky Sox after skipping Triple-A in 2007. But injuries have forced him to spend time in Colorado Springs.

In June 2008, he rehabbed a quadriceps tendon tear. In 2010, a fractured left hand sent the shortstop down for two games. Last season, Tulowitzki made two separate appearances while rehabilitating a groin injury.

This will be Fowler's third stint in Colorado Springs after being sent down in 2010 and 2011.
