Troy Tulowitzki to Yankees: How does reported deal affect AL East?

Troy Tulowitzki's redemption tour looks like it'll be based out of The Bronx.

The New York Yankees have agreed to a deal with Troy Tulowitzki, according to sources.

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

Spoilers: Becky Lynch Takes It To Another Level On SmackDown This Week
John Cena knows that Becky Lynch is a star and he did everything he could to put her over on WWE SmackDown Live. Backstage segments with Randy Orton and Mustafa Ali are shown, with them talking about tonight's main event.

The four-time All-Star is expected to play shortstop for NY while its regular starter, Didi Gregorius, recovers from Tommy John surgery. NY also has been talking with Manny Machado, one of the top available free agents. The Toronto Blue Jays, who released the 34-year-old infielder last month with two years left on his contract, will pay the rest of his $20 million salary this season. The five-time All-Star appeared in just 66 games in 2017 due to ligament damage in his ankle, and missed the entirety of last season after undergoing surgery for bone spurs.

While Tulowitzki helped the Blue Jays reach that year's AL Championship Series, he slumped the next year and then was derailed by injuries. The Yankees are only responsible for the pro-rated portion of the league minimum ($555,000).

Tulowitzki was a star for the Rockies from his rookie season in 2007 until he was traded by the Blue Jays in July 2015.
