Yankees, Troy Tulowitzki Agree To Deal

May JohnsonJan 03, 2019

Per MLB insider Jeff Passan, the Bronx Bombers are merely a physical away from making things official with free agent Troy Tulowitzki. It's expected to be worth the league minimum of $555K, Passan adds.

Passan says that the signing of Tulowitzki would not preclude the Yankees from signing Manny Machado. Rather, they simply couldn't pass up Tulowitzki on such an affordable salary.

Tulowitzki, 34, was released by the Toronto Blue Jays last month, who still have to pay him the $38 million he is owed the next two seasons.

Winter storm blamed for three deadly upper Midwest crashes
Light snow and ice accumulation is expected Friday for parts of central, southern, and northern New Hampshire. The weather service predicted the treacherous weather would continue through the weekend across the country.

Tulowitzki is expected to play shortstop while NY starter Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in mid-October, according to the report.

In 66 games with the Blue Jays in 2017, Tulowitzki batted.249 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs. Toronto would pay all but the big league minimum in the Yankees deal, which would be offset against his 2018 salary. Tulowitzki had been a top-hitting shortstop through parts of nine seasons in Denver but was limited by injuries during his tenure with Toronto.

Arguably his last productive campaign, a 2016 season in which he slashed.254/.318/.443, still saw him appear in only 131 games, a mark he hadn't reached since the 2011 season, which he spent with Colorado.
