MLB Rumors: Manny Machado sets meetings with Yankees, Phillies; Dodgers, Ray's strong candidates to land Realmuto

The season is marching and thanks to a relatively slow winter meeting, we have many big names left on the board. To give you an idea of ​​buzz out there on Sunday, we're here to round up all the remarkable trade and free agencies. As always our Free Agent Tracker is a great way to find out what's already happening on that front . Now we're going to jump in. ChiSox is not willing to go big at Machado, Harper The white sox has been quite active this offseason and added Yonder Alonso, Ivan Nova, James McCann and Manny Banuelos this week in recent days and weeks. As Sox emerges from a deep rebuild, they are also expected to be players for one or both Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Now ESPN's Buster Olney reports that such an exciting buzz comes with a qualification. Per an Olney source, Sox is likely not willing to offer either a generation-free agent a record contract. A record contract would essentially mean something over $ 325 million extension that Giancarlo Stanton signed in his Marlin days. It seems unlikely that both Machado and Harper would fall away from that figure, which in turn means that Sox can be a player for them only if the market goes far beyond expectations.

ChiSox is not willing to go big at Machado, Harper

The white sox has been quite active this offseason and added Yonder Alonso, Ivan Nova, James McCann and Manny Banuelos this week in recent days and weeks. As Sox emerges from a deep rebuild, they are also expected to be players for one or both Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Now ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that such an exciting buzz comes with a qualification. Per an Olney source, Sox is likely not willing to offer either a generation-free agent a record contract. A record contract would essentially mean something over $ 325 million extension that Giancarlo Stanton signed in his Marlin days. It seems unlikely that both Machado and Harper would fall away from that figure, which in turn means that Sox can be a player for them only if the market goes far beyond expectations.

Yankees Machado Reserve Plans

The Yankees are of course very interested in Manny Machado to fill their needs on the left side of the infield. If they sign Machado, then he could short-circuit at least until Didi Gregorius returns from the Tommy John operation (probably in June). Gleyber Torres can also squeeze down the second base, and the existing third base man Miguel Andujar remains the heavy topic of rumors about trade. Regardless of specific things, Yankees will make it work if it involves landing Machado.

And what if they do not? They still need help in the infield. An alternative is aimed at a veteran other baseman via a trade or free agency (it’s a buyer’s market for other basemen this offseason) and allows Torres to short until Gregorius returns. Another option, per George A. King III of the New York Post, is to go for free agent Freddy Galvis. Galvis, 29, spent the last season of Padres, where he batted .248 / .299 / .380 in all 162 matches while showing time in seconds. As the king notes, Yankees are not alone in having patterns on Galvis.

Another option, according to Nick Cafardo of Boston Globe, is veteran shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Tulo has recently been solved by Blue Jays even though he has received a lot of money on his contract. Jays will retrieve that tab, which means that Tulowitzki’s new employer will only owe him the minimum wage for 2019. He missed the whole last season of health injuries and he will enter his 33-year campaign. Peak Tulo is probably gone forever, but even a return to something like its 2017 form (102 OPS + in 131 games) would make him a very addictive addition. Little wonder then that the Yankees are interested.

Although they will have a contest. Susan Slusser tweeted that at least six teams are considering Tulowitzki. The cubes are known to be one of these layers .

Machado visits Yankees and Phillies this week

Talking about Yankees and Machado …

The Yankees visit is not the only one on Machado’s calendar next week. Machado comes head south the following day and meets Phillies on Thursday, according to Jim Salisbury from NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Machado is also planning to meet with White Sox, in addition to at least one “mystery team”. As mentioned above, the Yankees have a clear need for Machado. In addition, they have prioritized him to the extent that they barely match the Bryce Harper radar this offseason.

Braves on Realmuto

For a while, Brave’s reputation has been among the many teams interested in trading for Marlin’s catcher J.T. Realmuto. However, it seems to have changed …

It is worth noting that this may come from braves in an attempt to swing discussions (that is, lower Miami cost price), but of course it can be a real change in the approach. Bravesna is currently planning platoon Brian McCann and Tyler Flowers at the prisoner, and it’s not a bad arrangement, assuming McCann still has something left. In other words, many other teams have a greater need for Realmuto, and Braves may have come to that recognition.

Mets agrees to sign Ramos

The Metsna continued its aggressive offseason by agreeing to sign free agent Wilson Ramos for a reported two-year, 19.5 million dollar deal. Full story here . Of course, Mets is out of operation for J.T. Realmuto, then …
