Tuesday."Troy Tulowitzki is a five-time All-Star
, and has two Gold Gloves and two Silver Sluggers to his name. He was a runner up for the Rookie of the Year vote in 2007 (losing to some guy named Ryan Braun), and was arguably the face of the Colorado Rockies during his ten-year duration with the team.Then he was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays and it has been a bumpy road for him since. Tulowitzki has dealt with recurring injuries, and most recently missed the entire 2018 season due to bone spurs in both his heels. Though, according to Jeff Passan, he is currently in the best health heís been in for ages, the Jays still unexpectedly released him on Tuesday afternoon, making him a free agent.It just so happens that the Detroit Tigers are on the hunt for a shortstop, and Tulowitzki pretty quickly becomes an interesting target. There will be those who point to his recent spate of injuries as a reason to avoid him, and certainly they make a valid point. But donít forget that the Tigers lost Jose Iglesias to shin issues that cost him the whole 2014 season, and he bounced back in 2015 to become an All-Star. Letís take a deeper look at the positives and negatives of signing Tulo. The ProsWithout question, Tulowitzki has had monstrous success as a shortstop in his career. While itís hard to use certain assessments on active players, Tulowitzki ranks 26th of all time according to the JAWS list of shortstops. JAWS assesses the case for players entry into the Hall of Fame based on their peak WAR [Ed.: That weíre even talking about him in this stratosphere says enough, I think]. Tulowitzkiís JAWS rating is 42.2. To put it into perspective, beloved Tigers shortstop Alan Trammell is 11th of all time and has a 57.8 rating, while former Tigers first base coach Omar Vizquel is ranked 42nd with a rating of 36.2. All of this is just a fancy way to say: at his best, Tulowitzki is a very good shortstop.Defensively, he was likely at his absolute best in his rookie season, when he had a DRS of +31 and a UZR of +15.1, but Tulowitzki has remained consistently reliable in the infield, and in his last full season in 2016 still managed a +10 DRS and +5.2 UZR. His injury shorted 2017 campaign is hard to judge because he certainly wasnít playing with the same freedom of pain-free motion he had previously enjoyed. From an offensive point of view Tulowitzki has has some incredible success
, though much of it came during his time with the Rockies, when he was hitting over .300 for four seasons, and averaged .299/.371/.513 over ten years. When he moved to Toronto, he averaged .250/.313/.414 over three years. While itís more likely that a team biting on Tulowitzki now could expect the latter results, he has certainly demonstrated some incredible power at the plate during his career, and a change of scenery might do great things to re-invigorate his bat.The ConsIn his last active season, Tulowitzki hit .249/.300/.378 over 66 games, with a wRC+ of only 79. Steamer projections suggest heíll be at 99 in 2019. Though there is always, as mentioned, the chance for an incredible bounceback, itís far more likely that these are the results one could expect offensively from him going forward. His lackluster 2017 defense appears to be an anomaly, and itís likely heíll fare better on that front in 2019, though by how much is uncertain. However it seems a fair bet he wouldnít be a defensive liability, which is better than many of the free agent targets the Tigers have available currently. His injury history, of course, is the biggest strike against him, and the leading cause of concern if the Tigers decide to take a chance on the 34-year-old. Aside from the 2018 bone spurs, he missed much of the 2017 season as well with a wide array of issues, from a hamstring injury, to a groin issue
, to an ankle sprain that put him on the 60-day disabled list. The Tigers are not strangers to players battling frequent injuries ó just look at Daniel Norris ó but if theyíre going to bite on signing a big-name free agent like Tulowitzki, theyíd be doing it knowing thereís a risk of him being a frequent visitor to the DL. Then thereís a question of how much it would cost for the Tigers to sign him, and if it would even be feasible on their self-restricted budget. Had Tulowitzki continued with the Jays, he would have been paid $20 million for 2019. Given his injury history and the Jays willingness to eat $38 million (for 2019, $14 million in 2020, and the $4 million 2021 buyout), itís unlikely he can expect to make anything close to that, but even an average free agent salary might be more than the Tigers are willing to shell out.Still, it would be fun to see Tulowitzki out on the Comerica infield, especially if he can remain healthy. Oís fans still have 85% confidence in the direction of the team."Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Orioles fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.After a fun first week of the season that included multiple laundry cart beer showers, the Orioles have run smack into the unpleasant reality of this season. There are many players on this team who are merely placeholders until someone better comes along in a trade or from the farm, and there are many players who arenít good enough to be even a placeholder and will be shuffled off once Mike Elias has seen enough.It all adds up to what weíve seen through twelve games. The offense, except for strong early performances by Trey Mancini and Jonathan Villar, is not very good. The rotation is not good, and now Alex Cobb is injured again besides. The bullpen is really, really not good.Part of being an Orioles fan right now is knowing that none of this matters for the future of the team. Elias said so in his own way through the offseason and spring training, never directly acknowledging that he didnít care if the 2019 squad wins
, but instead saying things like, ďYou have to look at the big picture.Ē The Orioles do, indeed, need to look at the big picture, and under Elias they seem to be doing exactly that, which is good for the long run. Itís just that the small picture has a lot of bad baseball.As you can see, things have slipped just a bit since the beginning of the season, with the confidence question now having 85% of fans answering yes. Perhaps there are a few people out there in the voting pool who arenít willing to see the big picture like Elias says. The team sitting with a 6.45 ERA, with a pitching staff thatís struck out the fewest batters and allowed the most runs and home runs of any American League team, is not the sort of thing that inspires confidence.The dip in the overall confidence in the Orioles hasnít touched manager Brandon Hydeís approval rating. Fans in the survey remain happy with him, with Hyde sitting at 94% approval among our voters. Not bad at all.This week, fans across all of the baseball sites were asked to weigh in about a topic of great import to todayís game of baseball: Bat flips.In the world of SB Nation FanPulse voters, there are 70.3% who are fun-loving and correct, and 29.7% whose disapproval of the kind of pure joy (and sometimes spite) expressed in bat flips will shame their family names for generations.Stay tuned for next week, and if you want your vote to count in the next survey, itís not too late to sign up here.
