Manny Machado Trade 'Very Close'

A new report said that Orioles will likely trade Manny Machado to the Dodgers. | Gail Burton  Associated Press

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported Tuesday morning that the Dodgers were the leading candidates to land the four-time All-Star.

Prior to the 2018 season, Machado primarily played at third base, having only recorded time at shortstop in 52 games.

Machado responded, "Shit man, (expletive) if I know". The forecast gives the Dodgers a bit of a boost, going from 94.1 wins without Machado to 94.6 with the addition of the Orioles infielder.

Manny Machado is in his final week as a member of the Baltimore Orioles.

Corey Seager is out for the season after Tommy John surgery, which has left a void for the Dodgers at shortstop.

The messages were leaked via made up accounts that included " DCLeaks " and "Guccifer 2.0" as listed in the indictment. The Russians hit more than 300 people connected to the Clinton campaign and Democratic political groups.

The 26-year-old Machado is slashing.315/.387/.575 this season with 24 home runs and 65 RBI in 96 games.

"Nothing, nothing", the star shortstop said when asked what he has been told by the Baltimore Orioles or his agents. "And obviously you put that bat in the middle of our lineup, it makes things pretty special".

With trade talks reaching a boiling point, Machado said he's just focused on playing baseball. They have bottomed out at 28-69 and sit a staggering 39½ games behind first-place Boston in the American League East. Baltimore will probably follow with a trade of closer Zach Britton, a needed step to bolster a widely derided minor league system. The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers were also in the conversation, but the Dodgers reportedly won out in the end.

While reporters are asking other players and Machado himself about the potential trade, the shortstop's All-Star teammate J.D. Martinez also chose to ask about it when he got Machado on his Instagram Story.
