Orioles Have Deal In Place To Trade Machado

When play resumed after a 26-minute rain delay July 15, Orioles manager Buck Showalter made a decision to pull shortstop Manny Machado from the game.

While the Red Sox reportedly discussed a possible move for Machado with the Orioles last week, that seems to be the extent of their involvement.

According to Jon Heyman of WFAN and Fancred Sports, the Brewers, Phillies and Diamondbacks have outside chances of landing Machado, but sources with knowledge of the situation say Los Angeles is the leader to add the four-time All-Star shortstop. 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.

Plain and simple, the Orioles can't afford to have Machado get hurt.

With the Orioles sporting a historically bad 28-69 record and Machado in the last year of his contract, it's nearly a certainty the 26-year-old will be moved before the league's July 31 trade deadline.

By far the best performer on a very bad team, Machado leads the Orioles in batting average (.315), home runs (24), RBI (65) and walks (45).

The Dodgers have been aggressive in their pursuit of Machado with their own All-Star shortstop, Corey Seager, out for the season recovering from Tommy John surgery. So with the July 31 trade deadline right around the corner, here are three reasons why a trade for Machado would be flawless for the Phillies at this very moment in the 2018 season to give them a better chance of continuing to be a contender.

There have been as many as nine contenders rumored to be in on the Manny Machado Trade Sweepstakes over the past few weeks. By trading their best player they are admitting they are heading to a rebuilding phase.

At the All-Star break, the Orioles are at the bottom of the league with 28 wins, two years out from their last playoff appearance (2016) with largely the same roster. "We know that. You know it". I've got a lot of clothes in my locker and in my room. I'm trying to win.

"I'll be fine", said Minor, who yielded five earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. "You just don't know what's going to happen. I'm trying to go out there and leave it all on the field". You're involved in every play.
