There have been MLB trade rumors for weeks now involving Baltimore Orioles slugger Manny Machado, but it appears he may not be going anywhere. The team may decide to keep him on board as the offers they’ve received just haven’t been enough to tip them towards a trade. However, two teams are still listed as having shown the most interest in bringing Machado to their squad. Will one of them be able to wow the Orioles enough with a better offer, though?
In a report on Thursday from Bleacher Report’sAdam Wells, it’s noted that the Orioles have informed potential trade partners that the deals they’re getting for Manny Machado aren’t “enticing enough” for them to pull the trigger. USA Today’s Bob Nightengale echoed these sentiments, saying that Machado will probably still be a member of the Baltimore Orioles unless there is a major change to a team’s offer right now. In a recent report from ESPN, it was mentioned that Orioles manager Dan Duquette would “pull Machado off the market” if the deals didn’t improve.
As of this report, there have been just two major league teams rumored or reported as expressing the most interest in trading for Manny Machado. The Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks top the list of suitors despite speculation that the New York Yankees might be among the teams pursuing him. However, it appears based on these newest reports that none of these teams is willing to give up enough for Machado. That said, it’s also possible the Orioles need to lower their asking price.
