Published

on

The Baltimore Orioles have a strong offer on the table from the Chicago White Sox for thrid baseman Manny Machado, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

The White Sox have reportedly been “the most aggressive suitor” for the Orioles superstar third baseman, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

Despite Chicago’s offer and Baltimore’s willingness to move Machado, there is currently “no indication that a deal is close, or that Orioles owner Peter Angelos would give final approval to a trade of his team’s best player”, per Rosenthal’s report.

Rosenthal noted that the White Sox could part with either right-handed pitching prospect Michael Kopech or 2017 call-up Lucas Giolito but are reluctant to part with both in any deal. Per the same report, Baltimore is seeking “two young, controllable starting pitchers” in any return for Machado.

The White Sox, New York YankeesBoston Red SoxSan Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals have all expressed interest in Machado.

This one, just doesn’t make much sense if the plan is to move Andujar to make room for the likes of Manny Machado.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray, the Yankees are “open to moving” Andjuar via trade, but there is no clear trade path to reference at this time.

This development clearly shows the Yankees desire to sign Machado to a free agent deal.

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
