With many a top contender putting out feelers for Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, some concrete details are emerging about an offer that the defending NL Central champion Chicago Cubs apparently floated out. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reported over the weekend that the Cubs have discussed infielder Addison Russell, outfielder Albert Almora, and left-hander Mike Montgomery with the Orioles as a potential trade package for the three-time All-Star. Cafardo also adds that Baltimore’s “most substantive” Machado trade talks so far seem to be with the Cubs.
