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

Tulowitzki's time in Toronto came to an acrimonious end after he missed the entire 2018 season following surgery to remove bone spurs from both heels that he told The Athletic had bothered him "for years". In a surprise move that throws the Manny Machado sweepstakes into total disarray, the New York Yankees are reportedly making a move at shortstop to bridge the gap until Didi Gregorius is ready to return at shortstop. He was limited to just 66 games in 2017 because of the ankle issue and slashed.249/.300/.378 that year. Tulowitzki could slot in at shortstop, allowing Gleyber Torres to remain at second baseman and Miguel Andujar to stay at third.
