"If those follow-up appointments go well, I think we'll know we'll be in a much better position to give you an honest answer on opening-day expectations".

Tulowitzki, a five-time All-Star who was considered one of baseball's best shortstops before heel injuries slowed him down the past two seasons, isn't concerned by the potential competition Machado's possible addition would pose.

And Tulowitzki said he is monitoring the Machado sweepstakes like everyone else in the sport and welcomed the idea of playing with him. "I'll be ready to play when spring training comes".

The New York Yankees signed Troy Tulowitzki to a one-year deal last week to fill their void at shortstop. In an interview with Coley Harvey of ESPN, general manager Brian Cashman stated: "We have really reacted in a positive way to have that type of dialogue with Troy [Tulowitzki] and to commit to giving him that opportunity to be our everyday shortstop".

It's no secret that Sonny Gray's days in NY are numbered, but the status of another member of the Yankees' pitching staff may ultimately determine how much time he has left in pinstripes.

He joins an infield that has Gleyber Torres at second, Miguel Andujar at third and Luke Voit at first - unless Greg Bird beats Voit out during spring training, Cashman said.

Even though his fifth field goal attempt was blocked in the third quarter, Badgley still scored the most points in the game. Ahead of the Ravens' matchup with the Chargers, three Baltimore players walked into M&T Bank Stadium wearing clown masks.

That injury, plus Gregorius' impending free agency following 2019, led to the Yankees being linked to Machado up until the Tulowitzki signing.

"A lot can happen in that time".

"A lot can happen in that time", Tulowitzki said when asked about Gregorius coming back to play short. He's a heck of a player.

"Scouts that I highly respect were very pleased with what they saw and very excited by the workouts that he put himself through in front of them on multiple occasions", Cashman said. When that time comes, we'll deal with that but for right now, I'm concentrating on taking the field and helping us win games.

The Toronto Blue Jays released Tulowitzki, 34, in December after he missed the entire 2018 campaign due to a variety of injuries and needed surgeries to fix bone spurs in both feet.

"I would say there's some extra motivation, definitely", Tulowitzki said of the people who wonder if he can still perform. "But for me, I think all this has really made me stronger".
