Troy Tulowitzki among Blue Jays veterans GM puts on notice

Troy Tulowitzki among Blue Jays veterans GM puts on notice Tulowitzki, 34, missed all of 2018 after having surgery to remove bone spurs in both feet. In September he drew a line in the sand and said: “I’m a shortstop. If someone's better than me, I'll pack my bags and go home." The most Atkins is willing to guarantee Tulowitzki, a five-time All-Star slated to make $20 million next season, is the chance to compete for his job in the spring. “That’s what we want him to be thinking,” Atkins said.

The Boston Red Sox and free-agent pitcher Nathan Eovaldi agreed to a new deal pending a physical, sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

The deal is reportedly worth $67.5 million over four years, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

The Red Sox acquired Eovaldi from the Tampa Bay Rays during the 2018 season in exchange for left-handed pitching prospect Jalen Beeks.

Eovaldi, 28, posted a 3.33 ERA and 2.88 FIP over 54 innings for Boston down the stretch before playing an integral role in the team's championship victory. Over 22 1/3 postseason innings, he allowed four earned runs on 15 hits and three walks. His playoff performance included a six-inning relief outing during the 18-inning marathon in Game 3 of the World Series.

Report: Phillies agree to 3-year deal with McCutchen

Report: Phillies agree to 3-year deal with McCutchen The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a three-year deal with outfielder Andrew McCutchen, a source told MLB.com's Todd Zolecki. McCutchen's deal is worth $50 million, according to Fancred Sports' Jon Heyman, and includes a club option. He was originally seeking a five-year deal in the $80-million range, according to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan. McCutchen joins a crowded outfield in Philadelphia, which already includes Odubel Herrera, Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr, and Roman Quinn. The 32-year-old split his 2018 campaign between the San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees. He appeared in 155 games in total and wound up hitting .255/.368/.

Over seven seasons in the majors with five different teams, Eovaldi's thrown more than 160 innings just once. He missed all of 2017 after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career.

Eovaldi rejoins a rotation that features Chris Sale - who will become a free agent following the 2019 season - David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez. The Red Sox were one of two teams to exceed the luxury-tax threshold in 2018 and are set to blow past it once again after re-signing Eovaldi as well as World Series MVP Steve Pearce.

After the New York Yankees missed out on Patrick Corbin - who signed a six-year, $140-million deal with the Washington Nationals - Eovaldi was believed to be a contingency plan.

The Houston Astros were also reportedly interested in luring Eovaldi, who grew up in the same hometown as Nolan Ryan of Alvin, Texas.
