We've known for a while that the Orioles are open to trading franchise infielder Manny Machado and that a number of teams are interested. Recently, however, the buzz surrounding a potential Machado blockbuster has died down a bit, and it began to look like the O's would open the 2018 season with Machado still on the roster. Well, now comes this from Jon Morosi. Earlier this winter, teams like the Cardinals, White Sox, Yankees, Red Sox, and Diamondbacks were linked to Machado, and no doubt some of those clubs are still pressing Baltimore GM Dan Duquette to make a deal. So it may happen yet. Machado is on the block because he's entering his walk year, and the Orioles likely have no shot at re-signing him.
