The Toronto Blue Jays announced on Tuesday that they have released shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.  The move comes with two years and $38 million guaranteed left on his contract.  

Tulowitzki has battled injuries the last two seasons, including missing the entire 2018 season battling heel injuries.  He is said to be working out and healthy.

It’s an interesting move for a team that is in full overhaul mode.  They could have given him a shot to improve his trade value and moved him for some pieces later down the road or cut him if he was unable to perform.

What will likely happen now is a huge season for Tulo on the cheap somewhere else.  That’s one of my favorite narratives in sports.  Then we get thoroughly schooled in how another team is actually paying him more than his current team.  

It’s the best.
