Troy Tulowitzki will open spring training next month with a chance to be the "everyday shortstop" for the New York Yankees, according to Brian Cashman.

The Yankees remain linked to Manny Machado in free agency.

"We're going into this with a commitment level to try Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop," Cashman said. "We have really reacted in a positive way to have that type of dialogue with Troy and to commit to giving him that opportunity to be our everyday shortstop."
