  • Manny Machado hilariously responds when J.D. Martinez asks where he’s going next

Right smack dab in the middle of the 2018 Major League Baseball all-star game, the Atheltic's Ken Rosenthal dropped breaking news that Machado had played his last game as a member of the Baltimore Orioles and would be headed West. That would be news to Machado, and according to one source, the Phillies remained confident Tuesday in their ability to land the top prize on the midseason trade market.

The Orioles had been weighing offers on Machado for weeks, with the Philadelphia Phillies - a certain pursuer of Machado this winter - and the Milwaukee Brewers reportedly making serious offers. He's now hitting.315 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI and what would be a career-best.962 OPS.

In 2015, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said the Orioles would like to extend the then third baseman, but had "more urgent things to look at".

Machado has been dealing with constant trade rumors since the start of spring training.

Machado, 26, is due to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and will likely garner a deal worth around $26 million annually according to Spotrac.

The trade would greatly benefit the Dodgers, who lost shortstop Corey Seager in May due to season-ending Tommy John surgery. Baltimore's All-Star shortstop had an iconic moment during the All-Star Game when he took a selfie with future teammate Matt Kemp.

"This is probably going to be the last one I answer", Machado said.

"I'm going to go out there, enjoy myself, keep playing".

The day ended with more clarity.

Machado is boasting a career high.575 slugging percentage and.963 OPS in the final year of his contract with Baltimore. He entered Nationals Park early Tuesday afternoon in a cream suit, with no shirt under his jacket and a giant gold chain around his neck.
