Cubs and Dodgers know what the Manny Machado trade means See you in the playoffs

While the Los Angeles Dodgers were victorious over other the New York Yankees in acquiring shortstop Manny Machado, they will not be the favorites when he hits free agency. The Dodgers gave up five prospects in the deal: highly-regarded outfielder Yusniel Diaz, right-hander Dean Kremer, third baseman Ryan Bannon, right-handed reliever Zach Pop and third baseman Breyvic Valera.

Machado, 26, hit.315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI, 48 runs scored, and eight stolen bases in 413 plate appearances in the first half.

Machado will play shortstop for Big Blue and will fill the void left by Corey Seager, who suffered a season-ending injury.

The Dodgers (53-43) are a half-game ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West. Los Angeles fell one win short of a World Series title past year, losing in Game 7 to the Houston Astros.

"We liked the depth of the Dodger package, we liked the quality of the players in the package and we liked Yusniel Diaz, a player we feel is a gifted hitter", Duquette said.

His name has been centered in trade talks for most of the season, with the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers emerging as trade partners with Baltimore. He has hit at least 30 home runs and 30 doubles in each of those three seasons, making him one of just three players - and the only one in the AL - to reach both of those marks every season since 2015. The 89th MLB baseball All-Star Game will be played Tuesday. He hit.172 with four runs and four RBIs. "But the other players in the trade are also very talented". Not only that, but Machado likely gets to stay at shortstop, the position he manned this year after previously playing third base for Baltimore.
