Four-time All-Star shortstop Manny Machado reportedly will be traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Los Angeles Dodgers "barring a last minute snag," according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Jon Heyman of Fancred reported top Dodgers outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz is in the offer to the Orioles.
Machado confirmed he has seen the reports and thinks they are valid, but isn't certain, per Heyman. "It’ll be different. But different can be good." Machado is enjoying the best year of his career. Through 96 games, he has a .575 slugging percentage, 24 home runs and 65 RBI.
Most Orioles fans likely resigned themselves to losing him. An MLB agent told Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci in April 2017 that both Machado and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals could command contracts in excess of $400 million on the open market. !
