New York Yankees sign Troy Tulowitzki to one year deal

New York Yankees sign Troy Tulowitzki to one year deal

Injuries derailed what was shaping up to be a Hall of Fame-level career as he appeared in just a combined 197 games in 2016 and '17 before missing all of this past season due to surgery for bone spurs in both heels. The Yankees are only responsible for the pro-rated portion of the league minimum ($555,000).

The four-time All-Star is expected to play shortstop for NY while its regular starter, Didi Gregorius, recovers from Tommy John surgery.

In 66 games with the Blue Jays in 2017, Tulowitzki batted.249 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs. Per Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Yankees even personally reached out to Machado's camp to inform the former Baltimore Oriole that Tulowitzki was going to be signed "days ago" and that "they didn't want to send the wrong message". Gregorius is expected to miss at least half the 2019 season.

Should Machado actually take his talents to NY, he'd instantly be a force in the middle of their lineup with the ability to play both shortstop and third base for the Bronx Bombers.

His best years came as a Colorado Rockie, including six top-30 MVP finishes and five All-Star appearances. The agreement, as first reported by Jeff Passan, is for the league minimum of $550,000. If the Yankees do sign Machado, then they'll have a crowded infield situation once Gregorius returns. The free agent shortstop is probably the second most after player after Bryce Harper, this offseason. The Blue Jays will pay the remainder. "It is a good place for the Yankees to have him".

By the time 2019 was just one day old, the New York Yankees had already landed a highly decorated, free agent shortstop via free agency.

No matter how it all shakes out, there's little risk in the Yankees signing Tulowitzki, making this a positive move for the Yankees. It's a spare part for the Yankees, it's not a sign that the Yankees have moved on from the Machado sweepstakes.
