When Manny Machado returns from the 2018 MLB All-Star Break, he will not be donning a Baltimore Orioles uniform.

The team that is close to a deal isn't known, but it won't be the Yankees, who according to Orioles sources didn't have the need of some others.

USA Today also noted that the Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies are still engaging in discussions with the Orioles.

There is no word as of yet what players might be in on the deal for Machado, however Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reported earlier today that one of the Dodgers' top outfield prospects, Yusniel Diaz, is included in the offer the Dodgers sent to the Baltimore Orioles. "I honestly haven't even thought about it like [leaving the Orioles]".

Machado hit a first-inning home run, walked and scored in the third in the Orioles' 6-5 win against the Texas Rangers July 15.

"I had no idea, " Machado said.

Trump Says Putin ‘Probably’ A ‘Ruthless Person’
Trump's comments double down on his criticism of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member countries at last week's summit. Instead, Mr Paul said Mr Trump and other U.S. officials should focus on safeguarding upcoming elections from interference.

"Just looking back at everything that's happened this year, trade rumors, everything, just overall playing with this team has always been incredible", Machado said. A free agent at season's end, he put up an impressive.315/.387/.575 slash line with 21 doubles, 24 home runs and 65 RBI in 413 plate appearances during the first half.

The Blue Jays are going nowhere this season in the AL East, but Happ knows he might be going somewhere else.

It felt like an extreme move, to use his best pitcher in a critical situation, or perhaps a chance to showcase the 41-year-old for scouts from teams considering a trade.

On Sunday, Machado was pulled from the Orioles game, fueling rumors there would be a trade soon and last week Machado's Instagram account liked a photo of him in a Yankee uniform. "I'm the type of player, once I get in there, I'm locked in". But while they have the third-lowest OPS in the NL at shortstop (.634), the biggest available infield bats are third basemen.

It certainly appears that Machado has played his last game as a member of the O's. Machado said after the game that he wasn't thinking of that. You're involved in every play.
