Troy Tulowitzki grew up an A's fan in Sunnyvale.
Now that he's a free agent after the Blue Jays released him earlier this week, he'd love to come home and play for the team he grew up rooting for.
But it doesn't look like that will happen.
According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the A's haven't reached out to Tulowitzki's agent, Paul Cohen.
Cohen tells Slusser that there are currently six teams in the running to sign Tulowitzki.
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.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) December 14, 2018
Could one of those six teams be the Giants? President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi likes "good minimum-salaried players."
Sounds like we'll find out soon where Tulo will sign. Stay tuned.
