Troy Tulowitzki's road to recovery has not been an easy one. The Yankees' new offseason add is currently dealing with the aftermath of his double-heel surgery and has opened up about the difficulty of rehabbing from the injury.
Comparing his surgery and rehab efforts to those of New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, Tulowitzki let reporters know of the trials of recovering from his surgery, saying that "it's not easy to come back from."

“It’s not easy to come back from — I’ll tell you that,” Tulo said.#Yankees #Mets
With World Series aspirations guiding the Bronx Bombers this year, New York needs Tulowitzki to recover as quickly as possible and reach the top playing form he is capable of to help them dethrone the Red Sox from the top of the American League East.
Tulowitzki may be 34, but as the 24 home runs he hit in 2017 show, he can still play at high levels in the MLB.
If Tulowitzki can recover quickly from his surgery and play at this level for the Yankees, New York could see their chances at winning the World Series look even brighter than they do now.
