From Buster Olney: The Orioles have been talking with other teams about moving Manny Machado, and one of the teams that has expressed interest, according to sources: The Yankees, who currently have a need for a third baseman. The Orioles have not executed a major sell-off in the time that Peter Angelos has been owner of the team, but the circumstances could be right for that. Machado is a free agent at the end of the 2018 season and is expected to test the market, and the Orioles want access to the best prospects – and the Yankees have a very well-stocked farm system. Stay tuned.
The Orioles are listening to offers for All-Star Manny Machado, who becomes a free agent after the coming season. If they don't trade him, they may move him from third base to shortstop, where he started his career.

"Where life and baseball takes me, I'll deal with another time. Right now my focus is on the 2018 season and seeing if we can get back to competing."

Despite Giancarlo Stanton joining an already potent Yankees lineup, Orioles manager Buck Showalter isn't pushing the panic button: "If you make real good pitches to those guys, you get 'em out. If you make bad pitches, they go a little further than everybody else is hitting 'em."

The #Orioles aren't shopping Manny Machado, according to a source, but they're getting a lot of calls and they're in "listening" mode at the moment. Like the Rays and Blue Jays, the Orioles need to decide if they're ready to sell off some big pieces and go young. Trading Machado is the type of bold move that owner Peter Angelos has typically been unwilling to make. But Machado would attract a mother lode of talent to help restock Baltimore's farm system, even as he approaches free agency at the end of the 2018 season.
