The Chicago Cubs are planning to enter the sweepstakes for Baltimore Orioles infielder Manny Machado.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Gordon Wittenmyer, Cubs ownership seems to be on board with the front office getting aggressive in trade talks with the Orioles for Machado.

Chicago checked in on Machado over the winter, but nothing materialized.

With a struggling offense and with the Orioles season getting worse by the day, the Cubs may dig in their heels to work the phone lines in an attempt to land Machado.

“Mr. Angelos’ family has been great to me and mine,” Showalter said on Sunday regarding the pending decision of owner Peter Angelos . “So whatever direction they decide to go, I’m at peace with it.”

“It’s about winning the game,” Showalter said at the conclusion of the season. “That’s one of the things I really feel like we need to get back to, the expectations of winning. That’s part of it.

Per the report, Showalter received official word in a meeting with brothers John and Lou Angelos on Wednesday morning.
