Troy Tulowitzki on Yankees’ lineup: ‘We can hurt you from anywhere’

first_imgMORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN“To be at the bottom of the order, that was different for me,” Tulowitzki said, via ESPN. “Just goes to show how good it is, it really doesn’t matter. In this lineup, we can hurt you from anywhere.” The five-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger signed a one-year deal with the Yankees this winter. He missed all of last season after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from both his heels and was limited to just 66 games in 2017.“Opening Day was always special. I’ve had quite a few in my career, but today was something different,” Tulowitzki said. “The injury was tough on me and a lot of people doubted that I’d get back to this point. So definitely, it had some extra meaning to get back out there.”First baseman Luke Voit blasted a three-run homer in the first inning and finished with four RBIs in the Yankees’ win. Troy Tulowitzki thinks the Yankees have one of the deepest lineups in baseball.The 34-year-old shortstop hit ninth and went 1 for 4 with a strikeout in New York’s 7-2 Opening Day win over the Orioles on Thursday. Tulowitzki, who was making his team debut, was asked about batting last when he met with reporters after the game.last_img read more
