Manny Machado: Decision Coming Within a Week According to Reports

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

Writers Jon Heyman and Bob Nightengale were among those to quickly report otherwise, saying the Yankees are still very much involved in the talks for the free agent shortstop, although they urged caution about the New York's approach to the sweepstakes. Ultimately, it is Middleton who must decide, at least on the Phillies' end, between Machado and Harper.

The White Sox, too, have added incentive to the idea of Machado playing on the South Side, trading earlier this offseason for Machado's brother-in-law, Yonder Alonso, and reportedly agree to a one-year deal with one of Machado's good friends and offseason workout partners, Jon Jay.

In what seems like a make-or-break meeting, the team will reportedly fly a handful of executives to Sin City on Saturday - including owner John Middleton - to meet with Harper and his agent, Scott Boras.

Bruce Levine of the Score 670, a Chicago sports radio station, reported that Machado will make his free agency decision in the next week.

Don't be fooled by the Yankees, we have seen them operate like thieves in the night in the past (i.e. dealing for A-Rod after the Red Sox were unable to successfully restructure hist contract), perhaps they're just waiting to see what the market is for Manny Machado before striking an offer. He said that the Yankees, White Sox, Phillies, and a potential fourth team are in the bidding and looking for an answer soon.

Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal. He also noted that Machado is receiving offers between $25 and $28 million annually.
