We've known for some time that the Orioles are looking to trade star infielder Manny Machado, who's entering his walk year in 2018. The Cardinals have been linked to Machado, as have the White Sox (as strange as that might sound for a still-rebuilding club). Now, ESPN's Buster Olney, in a wide-ranging piece that's worth your while, reaffirms one of those possibilities and adds another ... As of Saturday morning, the Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks had demonstrated the most interest in Manny Machado, according to AL sources. The White Sox we knew about, but the Diamondbacks are a new possible destination. Arizona is of course coming off a playoff berth in 2017, and it's angling to contend again in 2018. The Snakes are faced with the possible loss of outfielder J.D. Martinez via free agency, and he was a vital part of their post-deadline success last season.
