REPORT: L.A. Dodgers Are Now Most Likely To Get Manny Machado Rental

UPDATE: Machado To Dodgers is 'happening'.
It's probably only for a two-month rental, but it appears that the Los Angeles Dodgers are about to consummate a deal for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado. According to USATodaySports, the deal in not final, but barring a last-minute snafu, it will happen on Wednesday. There is no indication yet of who will be heading to Baltimore in return. The report does state that the Phillies and Brewers are still technically in the mix for the All-Star, but it looks as if Magic Johnson and company are making a big extra push to win the World Series that eluded them just last year. Due to season-ending surgery for Dodger shortstop Corey Seager, Machado will be able to ply his desired position for the balance of 2018. Stay tuned.
