Major League Baseball trade rumors: Diamondbacks continue 'persistent' pursuit of Manny Machado

Major League Baseball trade rumors: Diamondbacks continue 'persistent' pursuit of Manny Machado

Catcher Caleb Joseph received a raise from $700,000 to $1.25 million and shortstop Tim Beckham received a hefty salary from $885,000 a year ago (with the Tampa Bay Rays) to $3.35 million for 2018.

Britton, who is recovering from surgery to fix a ruptured right Achilles tendon suffered during an offseason workout last month, isn't expected to return until June at the earliest. The initial timeline for his return was set at six months. However, the two sides were able to find common ground.

Before suffering his injury, Britton was projected to make $12.2 million by MLBTradeRumors.com.

The Orioles also confirmed Friday that they've struck new one-year deals with arbitration-eligible relievers Zach Britton and Brad Brach. The three-time All-Star began the year in a lengthy slump (.230 batting average in first half) before hitting.290 down the stretch to salvage his season.

Machado was obviously the most interesting case heading into Friday, considering he has been the subject of trade rumors in his last season before free agency.

Technically, the Orioles could have offered up to a 20 percent cut in Britton's salary, but the 30-year-old pitcher and his agent, Scott Boras, certainly would have had a strong case before an arbitration panel that Britton didn't deserve a paycut after an effective - albeit truncated - 2017.

Even in a down year by his standards, Machado still managed to hit 33 home runs for Baltimore in 2017.

In other deals, the Orioles reached one-year deals with shortstop Tim Beckham ($3.35 million) and catcher Caleb Joseph ($1.25 million). Over his career in the majors, Machado has posted a WAR clip of 27.9 He has hit 138 homers with 406 RBIs over the course of 764 games. Brach, 31, had a 3.18 ERA while picking up in 18 saves in place of Britton last season.
