Any interest in Tulo

Blue Jays released him today, so Twins would only have to pay the major league minimum. Was great at one time, maybe could bounce back.
I see him as high reward very low risk.
What to the rest of you think.

No. We already have a SS that can't play SS, we do not need another one, especially one who has suffered so many injuries that his prime is in the rear-view mirror.

It's tempting. Fangraphs has him projected at basically replacement level - they project 99 wRC+ and 1.0 WAR for 2019. He is willing to switch positions. Per Susan Slusser, "...Could be a real possibility for A’s at 2B at a mere $600,000." Maybe he can bounce back in 2019?
