Passan says that the signing of Tulowitzki would not preclude the Yankees from signing Manny Machado. The Jays will pay the 34-year-old roughly $20 million in 2019 and are responsible for the remaining $18 million over the next two years.

Tulowitzki missed the entire 2017 season because of ankle surgery, after playing in just 66 games the previous year while dealing with both hamstring and ankle issues.

Before that, as a Colorado Rockie, Tulowitzki was a regular All-Star who three times finished in the National League's MVP top eight. With Didi's impending return that's no guarantee with the Yankees but as most of us know Tulowitzki has always dreamed of wearing the pinstripes and grew up idolizing Yankees legend and former shortstop Derek Jeter.

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

According to Passan, Tulowitzki is expected to play shortstop for NY while Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery. He also won his two Gold Gloves in 2010 and '11. The Yankees have been mentioned around the former Baltimore infielder more than any other team.

By week's end, " Ultima Thule is going to be a completely different world, compared to what we're seeing now", Weaver noted. Prior to today, images of Ultima Thule were only a handful of pixels across, leaving the object's true physique ambiguous.

Presently, New York has Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar starting at second and third, respectively.

Improving upon last season's defense has been a major area of concern to NY this offseason, and by signing Tulowitzki and Machado that boxed can be checked. Passan reported that this does not take the Yankees out of the running for Machado. The Blue Jays will pay the remainder.

The most important thing to keep in mind about the signing of Tulowitzki is that it won't preclude the Yankees from going after Machado.

Tulowitzki is an intriguing option for the Yankees due to their current vacancy at shortstop.

In the end, though, Tulowitzki represents a low-risk, high-reward move by a team with strong designs on the World Series.
