Tuesday's hot stove item had Manny Machado, a target of the Milwaukee Brewers in trade talks, headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers play the Brewers this weekend at Miller Park.
While all parties involved deny the deal is done, nearly every report Tuesday afternoon indicated that the Orioles shortstop would be headed to Los Angeles when all was said and done. Philadelphia and New York (Yankees) were the other teams, along with the Brewers, rumored to be working on a deal for Machado.
Machado has maintained throughout the month of July that he is focusing on baseball, and that the trade talks and rumors will eventually be taken care of.
