DENVER (AP) -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki says his broken rib is healing and he hopes to return in time to help his team make a run at an NL West title.

Tulowitzki says he has begun some light throwing and the injury feels more like a "bruise" after two weeks on the disabled list. He was injured diving for a ball against Washington on June 13 and is projected to miss four to six weeks.

Tulowitzki was enjoying perhaps his best season before the injury, hitting .347 with 16 home runs and 51 RBIs. He currently leads NL shortstops in All-Star voting even though he will almost certainly miss the game at Citi Field in New York.

It is the second straight season he has missed significant time due to injury. Tulowitzki played just 47 games in 2012 because of a groin injury that required surgery.
