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 countered the rival Yankees' addition of Zach Britton by bolstering their starting rotation for the stretch run. Eovaldi made his season debut in May, following almost two years of rehab from elbow surgery. The 28- year -old has put together a solid comeback season with the Rays

In landing Eovaldi , however, the Red Sox were able to get the Rays interested in Beeks, 25, who has had a good run in Triple A He had a real stinker of an outing two starts ago against the Twins when he allowed eight earned runs on nine hits in 2 ⅔ innings, causing his ERA to inflate from 3.35 to 4 .59.

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.

Report: Blue Jays interested in Keuchel.
The Toronto Blue Jays have interest in free-agent left-hander Dallas Keuchel, Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reported this week. Keuchel is represented by super-agent Scott Boras and the 2015 Cy Young Award winner is expected to net a handsome contract this winter. Though it remains unclear how much the Blue Jays would be willing to pay, he could help fill a need on a team that's currently slated to open the season with a relatively young and inexperienced rotation behind stalwarts Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez.
