Phillies are upping their offer for Manny Machado

Yankees right-hander Luis Cessa worked six shutout innings in starting Game 2 of doubleheader abasing the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night at Oriole Park

Among the teams that were believed to be in the running are the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies and Arizona Diamondbacks.

As of Saturday, July 7, there were seven teams interested in Manny Machado.

With the Orioles in need of a serious revamp of their pitching staff, Yankees top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield was believed to be a main target for Baltimore. Of course, the Yankees also figure to be prominent players in the offseason market to acquire Machado this winter, and if they're successful in that regard, Andujar would've potentially been viewed as an expendable piece anyhow. He is only 26, began Friday with a.957 OPS and 23 home runs and will be a free agent after this season. All in all, NY acquired a potential superstar in Torres for just two months of Chapman not being with the club.

The Boston Red Sox reached out to the Baltimore Orioles regarding a trade for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, the Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck reported Tuesday.

Thanks to a deep farm system the organization could have the upper hand in landing the All-Star shortstop. A deal for Machado could possibly require young infielder Rafael Devers to be included in the deal, which is not something the Red Sox would be thrilled to do. The Brewers would probably have to trade top prospect Corbin Burnes, while the Phillies would have to part with top prospect Sixto Sanchez.

In light of the rampant rumors about the Orioles, who would be best suited trading Machado for a major haul at the deadline, they're not terribly likely to move him within the American League East.
