Troy Tulowitzki has found a home in the Bronx.

NY agreed to a deal with free agent Troy Tulowitzki on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

Tulowitzki idolized retired Yankees captain Derek Jeter and has worn No. 2 in his honour. NY also has been talking with Manny Machado, one of the top available free agents. The Blue Jays released Tulowitzki last month and still owe him $38M the next two years.

The Yankees' regular shortstop Didi Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery in October and expected to miss part of the 2019 season.

Bumrah finished with 3-53, following his six-wicket first innings haul, and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja 3-82. Earlier, Cummins had taken a career-best 6-27 when India declared their second innings on 106-8 before lunch.

The 34-year-old Tulowitzki was kept out of the Blue Jays lineup for the last season and a half after a serious ankle injury and surgery to both heels.

Toronto acquired Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies in the summer of 2015 as the team built toward its first playoff appearance since 1993.

While Tulowitzki helped the Blue Jays reach that year's AL Championship Series, he slumped the next year and then was derailed by injuries. They will pay the majority of his $20 million contract, with the Yankees responsible only for the league-minimum $555,000. In addition, the buyout is due in $2 million installments on July 1 in 2021 and 2022.
