The Milwaukee Brewers could be close to acquiring one of the top trade targets of the season. According to the Baltimore Sun, the Crew is one of seven teams with a competitive offer on the table for Manny Machado.
The Sun reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, Arizona Diamondbacks, Philadelphia Phillies, Atalanta Braves and Cleveland Indians also have offers in for Machado. The article states that all of the teams have equally competitive offers; however, the Dodgers could have made the most enticing deal.
The all-star shortstop could find his way to a new team relatively soon. Teams are asking Baltimore to trade him in the near future to help the teams now. The issue with this lies in the Orioles’ desire to get an elite return. The Sun says Baltimore specifically wants pitchers and left-side infielders.
