Dodgers Willing to Part With Top OF Prospect to Land Manny Machado

Dodgers Willing to Part With Top OF Prospect to Land Manny Machado”

With the MLB All-Star break upon us, Manny Machado has quite possibly played his last game with the Baltimore Orioles. "I'm going to the All-Star Game as an Oriole and as a shortstop", Machado said. Five Red Sox players will represent the American League in the All-Star Game at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The report does not specify the team the deal is in place with, but the Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies are among the leaders to land Machado.

On Tuesday morning, the Orioles continued to close in on finalizing a trade to send Machado to a contender, and a source said that a deal will likely be completed over the next 72 hours. The headline, "HE "LIKES" NEW YORK", was splattered across the back page of the New York Daily News - with a mocked-up image of the Baltimore Orioles shortstop wearing pinstripes.

The Baltimore #Orioles say that barring a last minute snag, they will trade Manny Machado on Wednesday with the #Dodgers, #Brewers and #Phillies still in talks. Given that the Dodgers have Seager and Justin Turner installed at short and third, respectively, they can sensibly take Machado on as a temporary fix. "To go out there and not know where you're going to be tomorrow, it's kind of tough". But the Orioles took time to weigh through offers from eight different teams, fully understanding that this deal was one that had to be orchestrated with careful precision. Philadelphia's front office is loaded with former Orioles officials who were involved in the drafting and developing of Machado - including president Andy MacPhail, general manager Matt Klentak and assistant GM Ned Rice. They play deadline day at Yankee Stadium. Playoff hopefuls and contenders are vying to add Machado, who is hitting.315 with 24 home runs and 65 RBIs this season.

Machado said Monday that if he was going to be traded, he'd prefer it be sooner than later. I'd like to be with the organization that I've been with, not learning new faces, not learning new names. "But I was talking to one of the guys earlier, he was in a position a year ago where everybody was telling him he was going to be traded, and it never happened". I have a lot of friends, a lot of relationships that have grown there.

"I honestly haven't even thought about it like [leaving the Orioles]". "I'm just trying not to think about it".
