Orioles, Machado fail to reach contract agreement, on course for arbitration hearing

Orioles, Machado fail to reach contract agreement, on course for arbitration hearing”

Approaching free agency after the 2018 season, Machado has been the talk of trade speculation with the Orioles likely looming outside of postseason contention next season.

The Baltimore Orioles and Manny Machado have agreed to a one-year, $16 million contract for the 2018 season.

Britton, who who is recovering from surgery to fix a torn right Achilles tendon, reached agreement for a $12 million salary this season.

The Britton and Brach news was reported by BaltimoreBaseball.com and confirmed by industry sources. The initial timeline for his return was set at six months.

Reports earlier Friday had the O's heading to an arbitration hearing with Machado after failing to agree by the 1 p.m. ET deadline. However, the two sides were able to find common ground.

There are plenty of reasons why Machado would make sense for Arizona.

The Orioles are considering moving Machado from third base to shortstop this season, at his request. Machado had been named an All-Star in three of the four years prior but was passed over in 2017.

Britton, 29, was limited to 38 games while battling an MCL sprain in his left knee and had a 2.89 ERA and 15 saves. The team was led by first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who posted a.966 OPS and had his third top-three NL MVP finish in the last five years. Beckham's deal is for $3.35 million and Joseph's is for $1.25 million. Machado made just $11.5 million in base salary last season, and was projected to receive a $5.8 million raise.

Arizona was fourth in the NL in runs scored last season, and they finished second with a.445 slugging percentage. Joseph, 31, hit.256 with eight home runs and 28 RBIs in 2017.

The Orioles employed the same "file and trial" stance a year ago, but agreed to terms with right-hander Kevin Gausman two weeks after the salary figure exchange deadline and also made catcher Caleb Joseph an 11th-hour offer before his arbitration hearing.
