MLB Rumors: Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki Agrees To Deal With Yankees

NY agreed to a deal with free agent Troy Tulowitzki on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

Troy Tulowitzki reacts after hitting a solo home run against the Minnesota Twins on August 4, 2015 at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the agreement, first reported by ESPN, is subject to a successful physical.

Troy Tulowitzki's wish to play for the New York Yankees may finally come true. The ankle required surgery last spring and he missed the entire season. NY also has been talking with Manny Machado, one of the top available free agents. 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. All told, the Blue Jays are going to eat $38 million to finish out the 10-year contract he signed with Colorado in.

Since getting traded to Toronto during the 2015 season, Tulowitzki has not almost been the same player that he was for the nine-plus seasons he was with the Colorado Rockies.

Tulowitzki is owed $20 million for next year, $14 million for 2020 and a $4 million buyout of a 2021 team option.
