Free agent shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is expected to get plenty of interest from teams, despite missing the majority of the last two seasons due to injury. He’s reportedly healthy for the first time in a long time.
The 34-year-old’s agent says there are six teams who are currently interested in his services.
Troy Tulowitzki’s agent, Paul Cohen, tells me they are narrowing the field of suitors tomorrow. They have not heard from the A’s, Tulo’s favorite childhood team and one he expressed interest in playing for. Right now, six teams are in the running.

Of the six teams interested, only the Cubs have been identified. Other teams believed to be interested are the Pirates, Mets, Yankees, Padres and Brewers.
Cubs are one of the teams that has at least been in contact with Tulo, and they will send a scout to a workout. There are others though, so they aren’t necessarily the favorite. His agent told @susanslusser there are 6 teams and they will narrow field soon.

It will be a flip of the coin for whoever decides to take a shot on the aging shortstop with injury concerns.
The upside is high, but does it outweigh the potential injury risk? One team will find out.
