Baltimore Orioles very close to Manny Machado trade, according to reports

Baltimore Orioles very close to Manny Machado trade, according to reports

Manny Machado will be traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a package of prospects barring a last-minute snag in negotiations, USA Today Sports reported on Tuesday, hours before the 2018 All-Star Game in Washington, D.C.

As Machado prepares for Tuesday night's All-Star Game in what could be his final appearance in an Orioles uniform, Fancred reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers have emerged as the leading contender to acquire Machado in a trade.

Corey Seager is out for the season after Tommy John surgery, which has left a void for the Dodgers at shortstop. The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers were also in the conversation, but the Dodgers reportedly won out in the end.

Now that he is out of the stadium and out of uniform, Machado can just relax knowing months of trade rumors and drama around him are nearly certainly over.

Manny Machado takes a selfie with Matt Kemp. That put him nearby Machado, who was playing shortstop for the AL squad.

In 2015, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said the Orioles would like to extend the then third baseman, but had "more urgent things to look at".

The Orioles had no choice but to trade Machado, perhaps the greatest player in franchise history since Cal Ripken Jr. "I just try to go out there and enjoy myself as much as I can". "They drafted me, I came up with them, played with them". The organization has done everything, so if this is the last time, hopefully I treated them well and did everything I could for this organization. Machado, hitting.315 with a.963 on-base-plus-slugging percentage and 24 home runs, fills a clear need with a superstar. "There will be a time and place for everything".
