Phillies, White Sox View Mike Moustakas As Fallback To Manny Machado

Given the embarrassment of riches the Yankees have in their infield and the fact that both Philly and Chicago are willing to meet Machado's contract demands, both spots make logical sense.

The deal is for $4 million for one year, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

Troy Tulowitzki and the New York Yankees have finalized a one-year contract for the major league minimum $555,000, giving the team a low-priced option at shortstop while Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery. Sources also tell Passan that this does not take the Yankees out of the Manny Machado sweepstakes.

According to Dominican Republic sports journalist Héctor Gómez, the "race to sign Machado" is down to two teams: the Phillies and the Chicago White Sox, hence leaving out the once-thought-to-be favorite, the New York Yankees.

While Tulowitzki helped the Blue Jays reach that year's AL Championship Series, he slumped the next year and then was derailed by injuries.

Toronto designated Drake for assignment to open a 40-man roster spot after dealing for left-hander Clayton Richard from the San Diego Padres last Sunday. He originally was claimed off waivers by Tampa Bay from Minnesota on November 1, only to see the Rays designate him for assignment later in the month - with the Blue Jays claiming him on November 26.

In other Major League Baseball news, the Tampa Bay Rays are eliminating approximately 10,000 upper deck seats at Tropicana Field next season, giving it by far the lowest seating capacity of any Major League Baseball stadium.
