Around Major League Baseball
Mike Axisa of CBS Sports predicts who will be MLB’s 50 best players five years from now. Noah Syndergaard comes in at #7 and Amed Rosario cracks the list at #42.
Meanwhile, the Yankees seem to have a contingency plan in place at shortstop. They have signed Troy Tulowitzki to a league-minimum deal. Having released Tulowitzski earlier this winter, the Blue Jays will be responsible for the $20 million the former All-Star is owed in 2019. Jeff Passan made sure to note that this does not mean the Yankees are out on Machado.
