Report: Yankees showing increased interest in Machado


As reported... The Baltimore Orioles have received the majority of interest in Manny Machado from National League teams, but one American League titan apparently has its eyes on the four-time All-Star. Despite their need for starting pitching, the New York Yankees are reportedly showing increased interest in trading for Machado, major-league sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Adding Machado to the Yankees' offense would make one of the league's best units even more dominant. The club entered play Monday first in the majors in home runs and second in OPS.


Machado has been adamant that he'll reach free agency this winter and seek to land a contract as a shortstop, though he may have to move back to third base if the Yankees trade for him due to the presence of Didi Gregorius. In that case, the club would have to move rookie third baseman Miguel Andujar to the bench or the minors in order to accommodate Machado. New York could also have Andujar take reps at first base despite never previously manning the position at any level.

Just what the Yankees need, a right handed power hitter. Certainly, no need for pitching!

Cashman must be looking at something else...  He's throwing us off the scent of what he's really up to.

Cashman has a history of doing what I'm suggesting.

no rivals in the AL East are interested in Machado so I doubt they are driving up his price.

Why trade one or two of our top prospects to get Machado when you can get him for money alone ?? If we don't get pitching we won't need him till next year anyways... The only way I would do a trade like this is if he would agree to sign an extension...

Didi is the better fielder and Machado has more power. I would much rather have the better fielder and solid team player any day. Pass on Machado and focus on pitching.

Come on if Yankees can't find a difference maker pitcher, reserve available funds to sign their own when they reach FA. Didi is a valuable SS. Don't  fix what is not  broken.
