MIAMI -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was rested Sunday against Miami after being bothered by soreness in his rib area.

Rockies' manager Walt Weiss said Tulowitzki was being kept out of the lineup as a precaution. Weiss was unsure when Tulowitzki suffered the injury Saturday during a swing, but he remained in the game.

Weiss says "he's OK, he's a little sore" before Sunday's game at Marlins Park.

Weiss added he wanted to take Tulowitzki out for a pinch-hitter in his last at-bat Saturday, but the shortstop talked him out if it.
