Tulo and the Yankees have agreed on a deal that will pay the shortstop the league minimum, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Tulowitzki idolized retired Yankees captain Derek Jeter and has worn No. 2 in his honour. The ankle required surgery last spring and he missed the entire season.

Injuries have limited Tulowitzki to just 66 games the last two years, including none last season. NY also has been talking with Manny Machado, one of the top available free agents.


Troy Tulowitzki is reportedly joining the New York Yankees.

Toronto will pick up the $20 million tab on his contract for 2019, while the Yankees pay $555,000 to take a chance on the oft-injured 34-year-old.

Tulowitzki, a five-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove victor, spent parts of the last four seasons in Toronto, where he helped the Blue Jays to playoff berths in 2015 and 2016 while battling an array of injuries - a common theme during his entire career.

Toronto will be paying Tulowitzki for many years: $5 million of his 2019 salary is deferred at 3 per cent interest and is payable in 10 equal installments each January 1 from 2025-34.
