While Heyman doesn’t reveal the team Machado will soon be suiting up for, he did have some details. The shortstop will be suiting up as a member of the Orioles during Tuesday night’s All-Star Game, and the New York Yankees are not the team he’ll be going to.
Machado is an impending free agent, so wherever he goes it will likely be as a rental. That will clearly hurt his trade value. That said, the 26-year-old superstar should bring back a solid return. He’s currently hitting .315 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI and what would be a career-best .962 OPS.
We’ll update with more information as we hear it.
