The New York Yankees aren’t out of the Manny Machado sweepstakes. According to Andy Martino of SNY, the team’s front office is still interested in signing the star.
“AS YANKEES PLAYERS TRICKLE INTO SPRING TRAINING, THE FRONT OFFICE CONTINUES TO CHECK IN WITH MACHADO’S CAMP, ACCORDING TO MAJOR LEAGUE SOURCES,” MARTINO WROTE MONDAY MORNING. “THE YANKEES ARE NOT THE FRONTRUNNERS FOR MACHADO — BOTH THE WHITE SOX AND PHILLIES HAVE BEEN MORE AGGRESSIVE — BUT THEY ARE NOT OUT ON HIM, EITHER.”
This report bolsters another recent one that indicated Machado “isn’t thrilled” with the offers he’s been receiving around MLB.
