TORONTO – Toronto Blue Jess released a veteran for a short time Tourou Toulovicki in Tuesday.
The 34-year-old missed the entire season in 2018 after surgery to remove the bony spurs from the two heels. Tulowitzki has two years and $ 38 million guaranteed money remaining under his contract.
"Through many talks with Troy and his representative, Paul Cohen, and in view of what is in the interest of both parties, we decided to release Troy today," said Blue Jays chief Ross Atkins in a statement.
Lourdes Gurriel Jr., and Richard Urena are in the mix for the short-term work of the team in 2019 and the Bo Bichette perspective is advancing through the system.
Atkins said last week that Tulowitzki, who works recently with college students, is recovering well, but it is too early to say when he will be ready for the big leagues.
Over 12 seasons with Toronto and Colorado, Tulowitzki has an average career of .290 with 224 walking and 779 runs.
