As the hot stove heats up in the MLB, one rumor from the weekend is that the Brewers are one of the front-runners for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado in trade talks.
That was suggested as much by Jon Morosi of MLB.com, who wrote in his article that as time goes on, there are more reasons to believe Milwaukee is the front-runner.
Ken Rosenthal said on Twitter over the weekend that the Dodgers and Brewers could be considered the favorites to land Machado.
Milwaukee has dealt with injuries and regression in the middle infield this season; the Brewers demoted Orlando Arcia to Triple-A while also designating for assignment Eric Sogard, while trading for Brad Miller, among other moves made to solidify a position that hasn't produced much from the plate in 2018.
