MLB Trade Rumors: Manny Machado Yankees Dodgers Brewers

The Rewind Aaron Nola’s jam-escaping pop up of fellow All Star Manny Machado

Manny Machado #13 of the Baltimore Orioles rounds the bases after hitting a home run during a baseball game against the New York Yankees at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on June 1, 2018 in Baltimore. While Miler has played extremely well since joining the team in early June, sporting a.269 average with 7 home runs and 29 RBIs, he isn't a power bat and long-ball threat like Manny Machado.

Across the country, as expected, the Yankees are also in on the Machado sweepstakes as Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported Monday night that the Bronx Bombers have "increased interest". In fact, I'd go as far as to say that unless the Brewers can talk to Machado and get him to say that he would for sure sign a contract for next season, he isn't worth pursuing.

Because the Yankees will do whatever is necessary to bring in good players, and Manny Machado is an exceptionally good player. The two-time Gold Glove victor was recently named to his fourth All-Star Game as he's batting.309 with 21 home runs and 60 RBI in his first 90 games this season. That might be a tough sell, however.

"I'm a shortstop. I play shortstop", Machado said (h/t Marc Carig). Whatever their plan is for the future, it doesn't seem like it's going to include Manny Machado, at least this season. The Yankees have one of MLB's best minor-league systems, likely giving them the capability to pull off a deal. The rumors with Machado have been picking up a bit of late and it's looking like he could be traded well before the deadline. But Machado, who turned 26 last week, isn't focusing on that.

Barcelona Rule Out Eden Hazard Swoop, Chelsea Star Too Expensive
It's also claimed that Hazard believes now is the right time to leave Chelsea in order to further his career and win more titles. The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his current contract with Chelsea and has not yet committed to a new deal.

The Los Angeles Dodgers could use a considerable upgrade at shortstop seeing as they've gotten little production out of Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez this season. This all is assuming not only that the Brewers land Machado, of course, but that he would want to stay in Milwaukee. Machado could be next.

April 13, 2018; Boston, MA, USA: Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado hits an RBI double during the seventh inning against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

The Orioles are believed to be close to dealing Machado. If the Yankees' best chance of getting better is by adding a star hitter and above-average relievers, that could be the route they take. If that means Machado becomes a member of the Yankees a few months earlier than expected, that's fine. The Dodgers and Brewers are the perceived frontrunners in the race to secure Machado's services for the second half of the season.
