This is not the Yankees shortstop announcement that we’ve all been waiting for, but the Bombers have reportedly agreed to a deal with Troy Tulowitzki, pending a physical. The good news is that the Toronto Blue Jays are on the hook for the $20 million left on his contract, and the Yankees will only have to pay him league minimum.

Tulowitzki, 34, hasn’t played in a major league game since July 28th, 2017. He made 260 plate appearances that year, hitting .249/.300/.378 with seven home runs. A long list of injuries, including bone spurs and ankle issues, have kept him off the field of late. He was last an above-average (and barely that) hitter in 2016, when he managed a 104 wRC+.

Best known for his time with the Rockies, Tulowitzki combined high-level defense with elite hitting. His 170 wRC+ campaign in 2014 stands out as a top season for a shortstop at the plate. He was a fearsome batter before injuries struck.

The New York Yankees came into the offseason wanting to land one of the game’s best players, and they will reportedly do it. After careful consideration, Manny Machado is reportedly going to sign with the Yankees.

According to Dan Clark, Machado received final offers from the Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox recently. As expected, the official announcement isn’t slated until early January, but the All-Star shortstop is reportedly going to sign with New York.

Have heard that the , , and have all made their final offers to Manny Machado, and it is indeed New York where he’ll be heading. Announcement expected early-January.

If Machado indeed signs with New York, it marks a major haul for the Yankees as they try to compete for their 28th World Series title and make it back to the World Series for the first time since 2009.

While it isn’t known which position Machado would play in New York, his flexibility would give the team plenty of options.

In addition to being an outstanding hitter that is coming off a 2018 season with a .297/.367/.538 slash line with 37 home runs, Machado is also one of the game’s best defenders at third base.

If Machado signs with New York and moves back to his original position at third base, it could open the door for the Yankees to trade rookie Miguel Andujar and add a high-end starting pitcher.
