NEW YORK CITY – On Tuesday, pending a physical, the New York Yankees agreed to terms with shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki. 

The deal would be worth $555,000, which is the league-minimum.

Tulowitzki spent the last three plus seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays after being traded from the Colorado Rockies during the 2015 season, a trade which included veteran journeyman bullpen pitcher, LaTroy Hawkins, and speedster Jose Reyes.



Tulowitzki was a member of the Rockies from 2006 until the 2015 trade.

Due to bone spurs in his right ankle which required surgery, Tulowitzki missed the entire 2018 season.

Tulowitzki was released by the Blue Jays at the conclusion of the 2018 season, with two years and $38 million left on his contract.



In his career, Tulowitzki has been named to five MLB All-Star Games, and has taken home two Gold Gloves, and two Silver Slugger awards.

The 12-year veteran also has a .290 career batting average, 224 home runs and 779 RBIs.

Tulowitzki has not played in a game since July 2017.
