The Yankees are trying to make a push to acquire Manny Machado

Machado-Manny-USNews-070718-ftr-getty

April 13, 2018; Boston, MA, USA: Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado hits an RBI double during the seventh inning against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

They have a herd of impending free agents on their team that they will probably trade and the best player is shortstop Manny Machado and according to MLB.com, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks are the front runners for the shortstop who is leading the AL in voting for starting at shortstop in the All Star Game. The New York Yankees aren't content to sign Machado during the offseason, the team reportedly is trying to get him right now. Machado is in the final year of his contract and has put up some gaudy numbers thus far (.313 average, .383 OBP, 21 home runs, 60 RBI). As Rosenthal notes, the Yankees could make the Orioles a stronger offer than the other teams that have been rumored to be looking at Machado.

Should the Orioles trade Machado to a National League team before the All-Star Game, he would be ineligible to play in the game, but could be introduced. At least Baltimore should get something decent out of it. He's still doing his best to "go out there and have fun" on a daily basis. That's the only thing that keeps me going.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers remain the most likely landing spots for Machado in a trade, but Rosenthal acknowledges that the Yanks have the prospects to outbid those teams in a trade if they wanted to pull the trigger. I'm just trying to win some games.


"This organization has given me everything", he said. Going into his final year before free agency, the Orioles openly shopped him during the offseason, but made a decision to hang on to him with the focus of trying to compete in 2018. "You can tell that he was on a little mission to be consistent all year this year and I think this is consistent with that". Asked to compare this July to ones where the team has tried to add, he's said there's not much difference to what will happen to these Orioles than years past. Their current shortstop, Chris Taylor, has played second base and center field for them this year as well as third base and left field for them last year.

It's the fourth time Machado has been named to the All-Star team, but his first as a shortstop.

Showalter said: "I'd very much like to be adding, but we feel like potentially, we will add - really well". Defensively, his.978 fielding percentage is seventh among AL shortstops, while his minus-18 runs saved ranks last.
