Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

The New York Yankees have seemed pretty low-key in their pursuit of one of two 26-year-old superstars on this winter's free-agent market, reportedly unwilling to offer the kind of multimillion-dollar contract that the White Sox have reportedly already offered and the Philadelphia Phillies are expected to offer. Reports have suggested that the club will only acquire Harper or Manny Machado this offseason, not both as what was originally reported to be a possibility.

Outfielder Jon Jay and the White Sox have agreed to a one-year, $4-million deal, according to reports.

Manny Machado is getting closer to deciding which team he will sign for.

Sign Bryce Harper, and the Nationals easily could surpass the luxury-tax threshold for the third straight season.

What's more is that the Phillies are also still in on Bryce Harper too, which would make them the MLB's version of a super team.

Bruce Levine of the Score 670, a Chicago sports radio station, reported that Machado will make his free agency decision in the next week.

Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal.

Levine pointed out that Philadelphia is likely willing to go 10 years for Machado, several more years than the White Sox are willing to.

We might soon find out, if the next seven days truly do provide Machado's decision. As far as the value of the contract, it's unknown, but it is believed Machado could receive between $25-$28 million annually, Levine adds.
