Phillies prospects in potential Manny Machado deal named

Phillies prospects in potential Manny Machado deal named

Considering the team is second in the NL West and lost their star shortstop Corey Seager for the season to Tommy John surgery, it's no surprise that the Dodgers are looking hard at Machado. That may not be as off-putting to the Indians as it would to another team: Their bullpen now ranks second to last in the league with a cumulative 5.39 ERA and -1.9 fWAR, bested (or worsted) only by the Royals. They are sellers, not buyers, at the trade deadline.

Sources: Orioles making progress and narrowing their focus in the Machado trade talks.

Sheffield, acquired in the Andrew Miller trade two years ago, has a 2.44 ERA in 16 games (15 starts) between AA and AAA this season, and is the best pitcher NY has in its farm system.

Trump's trip to the UK has many hallmarks of a state visit
May must publicly respond to Trump's comments when the pair hold a press conference later on Friday. If they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested".


With the Orioles in need of a serious revamp of their pitching staff, Yankees top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield was believed to be a main target for Baltimore.

Olney tweeted just a few of those players from the Phillies' farm system on Saturday night. At the time, it seemed as if the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers were the front runners.

Clearly, the Yankees aren't ready to part with top prospects, and if they can sneak out the door without doing so, that'd be a massive boon.

Karunaratne leads Sri Lanka to 272-run lead 2 days into test
In their second innings, Dimuth Karunaratne - the centurion of the first innings - batted solidly yet again to score a steady 60. South Africa were all out for 73 in their second innings, the worst for them in Sri Lanka .


The 28-year-old right-hander is slated to remain under team control through the 2021 season and has put up some impressive totals over the last three seasons. Because of that, it's likely Moustakas will not be able to be traded until after Machado has been claimed.

We probably will not get a good idea of which team Mike Moustakas will end up on until after a clear favorite surfaces for Manny Machado.
