Former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein offered three Cub players to the Orioles in exchange for three-time All-Star Manny Machado. No deal has yet been consummated, but multiple reports indicate that the Chicago discussions are the most "substantive" of all. The three Cubbies who would head over to Camden Yards are: IF Addison Russell, OF Albert Almora and LHP Mike Montgomery. Machado has stated that he wants to return to playing shortstop, so a move to the North Side of Chicago would fit well with established Cub third-baseman Kris Bryant.
