Dodgers Acquire Manny Machado From Orioles

Rosenthal also reports Baltimore will not be sending any money to Los Angeles as a part of the deal, but the Dodgers are still projected to remain under the luxury-tax threshold.

Los Angeles was 10 games under.500 on May 16, but have turned their season around and now lead the NL West by a half-game over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

On Tuesday night, it was reported that the Dodgers would be acquiring all-star shortstop Manny Machado from the Baltimore Orioles.

The deal hit a snag earlier Wednesday, according to multiple reports, with the Orioles having some issues regarding the physical of one of the prospects Los Angeles had agreed to send.

Showtime Fights Claims Against Sacha Baron Cohen's "Who Is America?"
The brand new satirical half-hour Showtime series, which Baron Cohen wrote and directed, has been in the works over the past year. But the store footage does show someone who looks vaguely like Cohen talking to the owner and abruptly leaving.

The Dodgers made the news official later Wednesday, confirming Machado was acquired in exchange for Rylan Bannon, Yusniel Díaz, Dean Kremer, Zach Pop and Breyvic Valera.

A Platinum Glove Award victor and three-time All-Star at third base, Machado moved back to his original position this season. Machado will play shortstop for Big Blue and will fill the void left by Corey Seager, who suffered a season-ending injury.

The 26-year-old becomes a free agent after this season.

Machado was drafted by the Orioles with the third overall pick in 2010 and has been a starter in Baltimore since 2012.
