Yankees Sign Infielder, Appear to be Out on Machado

Yankees Sign Infielder, Appear to be Out on Machado

Harper and his representative, Scott Boras, met with Phillies owner John Middleton, general manager Matt Klentak and manager Gabe Kapler for several hours.

The answer might very well be "no" if Machado refuses to lower his expectations; the Yankees' party line is they will not pay him anywhere near $300 million.

In other words, the Phillies either accidentally landed a potential Machado bargaining piece or are making a not-so-subtle push to get the All-Star's attention three weeks after hosting him at Citizens Bank Park.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic recently wrote that the Phillies actually prefer Machado over Harper in free agency.

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, Machado's camp has indicated there is a mystery team involved in discussions for landing the prized free agent beyond the heavily rumored Phillies and White Sox.

The Yankees went after Manny Machado, but signing LeMahieu - along with another former Rockies player in Troy Tulowitzki - signals they will not be able to land Machado this offseason.

It would be quite a shock, from a fit perspective, to see the Yankees out on Machado, who makes so freaking much sense for them and who reportedly really wants to be a Yankee.

It has been more than three weeks since Machado met with the Yanks in NY, and Jack Curry of the YES Network reports that there has been barely any communication between the two sides over that period.

Despite being considered the favorites to sign LeMahieu, he has found a different home. Expect some more rumors to break on the subject over the next few days.
