DJ LeMahieu, Yankees Agree On 2-Year Contract

REPORTS: Manny Machado Still Seeking More Than $325 Million, Yankees Out

It has been more than three weeks since Machado met with the Yanks in NY, and Jack Curry of the YES Network reports that there has been barely any communication between the two sides over that period.

Some reports that the White Sox unwilling to move past seven years for Machado, whereas the Phillies might be willing to go a little further.

Chicago has offered Machado a contract worth close to $200 million, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

LeMahieu's deal could take the Yankees out of the running for Manny Machado, the All-Star slugger they were reportedly pursuing.

It finally happened. Someone set up a GoFundMe to help the #Yankees sign Manny Machado.

Barca back for Willian? Malcom swap rumored for Chelsea
Both clubs were involved in a discussion regarding the Brazil international's move to Camp Nou last summer. On the other hand, Malcom is still young and has huge expectations surrounding him.


Both Chicago and Philadelphia are among the contenders to sign Bryce Harper.

If offers from the Phillies and White Sox are similar, the Phillies would give Machado a better chance to win immediately, if that is indeed what matters most to him. As Jack Curry of the YES Network said on Twitter, "With the addition of LeMahieu, it's another indication that the Yankees appear unlikely to sign Machado".

Multiple outlets are reporting the Phillies have hired Bobby Dickerson to be their infield coach. The Phillies ranked 23rd with a payroll just north of $100 million last season, and ownership has made it clear that the organization is ready to hand out lucrative contracts this offseason.

It does at least seem possible, even as the Yankees should have perverse amounts of money to spend, especially on a 26-year-old star like Machado who could fit with their club seamlessly for a decade.
