New York Yankees sign Troy Tulowitzki to one year deal

The New York Yankees signed Troy Tulowitzki to a one-year deal

The New York Yankees are going to be without Didi Gregorius for most of the 2019 season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. While everyone is waiting on the Manny Machado to sign, it appears the New York Yankees may have found their veteran stopgap at the position while Didi recovers, and it’s a former All-Star in his own right.

 


I spoke about why Troy Tulowitzki could be a fit in this space earlier this off-season and this deal makes all the sense in the world for the New York Yankees.  A one-year deal at the minimum is very easy to get out of Tulowitzki doesn’t show he’s recovered from his injuries. If he comes into spring training and can’t hit, you cut him and move on.

If he proves he can still hit, even when Gregorius comes back, Tulowitzki can give the New York Yankees depth and even get some at-bats at DH for them.

As Passan said, Tulowitzki on a minimum contract was too good to pass up for the New York Yankees. This may not be the only move the club makes on their infield this week, but it is one that could pay dividends throughout the 2019 season.
