KUSA - Troy Tulowitzki feigns away from the spotlight – allowing his play to speak for himself instead. But his hot start has put him on cover of Sports Illustrated.

The Rockies shortstop will be featured on a regional cover this week for one of the foremost sporting magazines.

It will be just Tulowitzki's second time on the cover as he appeared with Brewers and Diamondbacks outfielder's Ryan Braun and Justin Upton in 2008.

Tulowitzki leads Major League Baseball in batting (.378), is second in the National League in home runs (14) and tied for third in runs batted in (36). His health has been a critical factor to his success and – rightly so – in the conversation for the game's best player.
