Orioles go for series win versus Yankees

Orioles go for series win versus Yankees

The Yankees need wins, though, as they're battling the Boston Red Sox for first place in the American League East.

The Dodgers' need for offense is even more significant now, as outfielder Yasiel Puig-who was in the midst of a very productive month-has landed on the disabled list with a strained right oblique and is set to miss at least a few weeks of the season. As SNY.tv's Andy Martino notes, however, the Yankees' unwillingness to include Justus Sheffield in a trade for Machado "could leave them behind other teams". His OPS, 17 percent above the MLB average factoring in league and park, was better than that of Justin Upton, Cody Bellinger and George Springer. And with an already depleted farm system, it's better off that they have kept themselves out of the running. "This all feels like the Yankees building up a player's value to trade him for a young, controllable starter and then they will revisit the issue of third base in the offseason with [Brandon] Drury, an outside third baseman or signing Machado".

The Yankees have made a "strong offer" for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman. They have had extensive conversations with the Philadelphia Phillies, whose front office is loaded with ex-Oriole officials who were involved in the drafting and developing of Machado for Baltimore - from president Andy MacPhail to general manager Matt Klentak to assistant Ned Rice. With this many teams involved, the price will certainly be high for Machado.

Machado has five multihomer games this season and 19 for his career. Another team in the mix at the top is the Yankees.

After the morning's drama, reporters were left to sort out just how far Trump was willing to push in his negotiations with allies. President Donald Trump into hiking military spending, saying that his country would make its own "sovereign" decisions.

At this point, it's nearly easier to list the teams out of the Machado sweepstakes than those in the hunt for the four-time All-Star.

Gennett is having a career year, posting a very solid 137 wRC+ (third highest among qualified second baseman), but can expect some regression as his BABIP is almost 40 points above its normal total of.333. He's a free agent at the end of the season, so he'll likely be a rental for the team that acquires him now.

Asdrubal Cabrera, now a member of a disappointing Mets' team, could help the Dodgers' playoff push.
