Manny Machado Trade Talks Make Focusing Difficult

Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado

For Baltimore Orioles slugger Manny Machado, the upcoming All-Star break will be far from that, a break.

Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado might be wearing pinstripes sooner than expected. The Yankees could send the 23-year-old Andujar back down to the minors for a few months, though Machado has maintained that he has no interest in playing any position other than shortstop. Machado has a.312 batting average, .381 OBP, and a.560 SLG with 21 home runs and 60 RBIs at 343 at bats.

But after learning of his fourth All-Star Game selection Sunday just two days after turning 26, Machado said while he realizes his days with the only major league organization he knows are likely numbered, he will take special pride representing the Orioles in the midsummer classic for likely his final time as trade rumors continue to intensify with the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline looming. Over the last couple weeks, the Phillies have been connected to the Baltimore Orioles via J.P. Crawford as a player that might be included in a deal for the All-Star. "It kind of gets a little bit distracting at times".

A trade before the All-Star Game could leave the Orioles without an All-Star Game representative in a year the event is just down the road in Washington.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers remain the most likely landing spots for Machado in a trade, but Rosenthal acknowledges that the Yanks have the prospects to outbid those teams in a trade if they wanted to pull the trigger.

"I've had to deal with it all year". He encouraged them to "keep rooting for us, keep rooting for me, keep their heads up high". That said, teams aren't going to be willing to pay what the Orioles were asking for over winter. Their current shortstop, Chris Taylor, has played second base and center field for them this year as well as third base and left field for them last year. He'd be an upgrade over shortstop Didi Gregorius or third baseman Miguel Andujar, but both players have been productive this season.

Who else is in the running to acquire Manny Machado? A similar scenario occurred in 2014 when Jeff Samardzija, who had been named to the National League All-Star team, was traded by the Chicago Cubs to the Oakland Athletics.

"I'm the American League starter", he said. It's just made us better and brought us closer together. "That's all I've been thinking about". On defense, his fielding percentage of.978 is seventh amongst shortstops in the AL.
