O's narrow Machado talks; Phillies a major suitor

O's narrow Machado talks; Phillies a major suitor

Thanks to a deep farm system the organization could have the upper hand in landing the All-Star shortstop. And they're asking a lot.

Heyman's report comes on the heels of a report from MLB.com's Jon Morosi that Baltimore would be willing to trade Machado to the Yankees if left-handed pitching prospect Justus Sheffield was offered, though MASNSports.com's Roch Kubatko reports Sheffield is not in New York's offer at present.

On Friday, Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported that the Phillies had increased their offer for Machado, showing their aggressive pursuit for the shortstop, ramping up the offer in order to outbid other teams.

As of Saturday, July 7, there were seven teams interested in Manny Machado.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on fire after starting the season in the worst way possible and now find themselves in sole possession of first place.

Trump says he will bring up election meddling with Putin, but according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, only Putin, Mr. Muslim scholar Imam Tawhidi wrote on Twitter that if protestors really cared they would have given the cash to charity.

Now, it seems that the Phillies have taken one of the top spots in the battle for Machado.

Clearly, the Yankees aren't ready to part with top prospects, and if they can sneak out the door without doing so, that'd be a massive boon.

Should the Yankees not want to make Andujar the big chip, outfielder Clint Frazier is also an option.

Despite that, it's likely that Dave Dombrowski is simply doing his due diligence on Machado's price tag. Though the Cardinals could shift around their infield to put him at third.

We probably will not get a good idea of which team Mike Moustakas will end up on until after a clear favorite surfaces for Manny Machado. With the trade deadline weeks away, nothing appears to be imminent on any of these fronts so far.
