LA, Brewers balking at Orioles asking price for Machado

  • Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado

Hitting, pitching, defense and relief pitching have been great at times, but have also been awful at other times.

The Orioles are believed to be close to dealing Machado.

Unless Machado agrees to a contract extension with his new team before a deal happens, the Orioles are gonna get screwed and not get a cornerstone piece in return. With his Baltimore Orioles sitting at a league-worst 24-64, Machado will nearly certainly be on the move in the coming weeks. Despite the team's struggles Machado has had a very productive season, slashing.310/.381/.560 with 21 home runs and 59 RBIs.


The latest report from Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun claims that the Orioles are considering seven different offers from the Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Brewers, Phillies, Braves, Indians and Cubs, with a few other teams rumored to be interested as well.

The Orioles want right-hander Corbin Burnes as the centerpiece in any Machado trade with the Milwaukee Brewers, and High A infielder Gavin Lux as the key prospect from the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to major-league sources. Given how close the offers appear to be, it's still anyone's game (er, shortstop), though an agreement could be struck even sooner than the July 31 deadline if the Orioles find the right combo of prospects.
