Perhaps the former All-Star could play a useful role for the 2019 Cubs.
Earlier this week I wrote here that the Cubs should look into signing Troy Tulowitzki, the former Rockies and Blue Jays shortstop who was released by Toronto with $38 million left on his contract.
Now, it appears the Cubs are at the very least doing their due diligence:
Cubs are one of the teams that has at least been in contact with Tulo, and they will send a scout to a workout. There are others though, so they aren’t necessarily the favorite. His agent told @susanslusser there are 6 teams and they will narrow field soon.

Susan Slusser is the MLB.com beat writer for the Athletics. Tulowitzki grew up in the Bay Area and there had been rumors the A’s might have been interested in him, but Slusser says no:
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.
