MLB Trade Rumors: Manny Machado Being Pursued By Arizona Diamondbacks

Manny Machado Baltimore Orioles

Approaching free agency after the 2018 season, Machado has been the talk of trade speculation with the Orioles likely looming outside of postseason contention next season.

Reports earlier Friday had the O's heading to an arbitration hearing with Machado after failing to agree by the 1 p.m. ET deadline.

The Orioles also confirmed Friday that they've struck new one-year deals with arbitration-eligible relievers Zach Britton and Brad Brach. However, the two sides were able to find common ground.

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, who is most closely compared to Machado due to their star power and earning potential as they reach free agency following this season at age 26, will receive $21.625 million next year, an $8 million raise, as part of a deal negotiated last season to buy out his final arbitration year.

Machado, a third baseman for most of his six years in the majors, has voiced his desire to move to shortstop. The three-time All-Star began the year in a lengthy slump (.230 batting average in first half) before hitting.290 down the stretch to salvage his season.

However, Donaldson already made $17 million last year, the final year of a two-year contract negotiated by the Blue Jays after his MVP season in 2015. In 2016, he had a 0.54 ERA and converted all 47 of his save opportunities.

Britton earned $11.4 million in 2017.

Catcher Caleb Joseph received a raise from $700,000 to $1.25 million and shortstop Tim Beckham received a hefty salary from $885,000 previous year (with the Tampa Bay Rays) to $3.35 million for 2018.

Brach, 31, had a 3.18 ERA while picking up in 18 saves in place of Britton last season. Machado, a career.279 hitter, has hit at least 33 home runs in each of the last three seasons.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman and second baseman Jonathan Schoop are Baltimore's only arbitration-eligible players without deals.
