Manny Machado

Interested Teams: New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies

Best Fit(s)?

Similar to Harper — and a number of other top free agents we’ll talk about — we previously went into detail with regard to Machado’s potential suitors. Since then, the infielder’s known market has seemingly been focused around the three above teams he visited following the Winter Meetings.

Despite being on the verge of officially signing Troy Tulowitzki and probably not offering Machado the most money, the Yankees still appear to be the frontrunner.

New York is clearly preparing for a scenario where Machado doesn’t choose them, and if he does, it gives them plenty of options while Didi Gregorius is on the disabled list — including floating Miguel Andujar in trade talks.

The Phillies are expected to be the highest bidder for both Harper and Machado, so we’ll see how everything plays out soon enough.
