A new suitor has entered the Manny Machado sweepstakes. According to a report, the Arizona Diamondbacks have been in contact with the Baltimore Orioles about possibly acquiring the slugger.
Machado has been tied to multiple teams. The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians have both been listed as favorites. The Boston Red Sox have also been listed as a possible destination, though recent talks have suggested that might not be likely.
The Diamondbacks’ interest certainly makes sense. Arizona has struggled offensively at both shortstop and third base.
