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

The White Sox have formally made Machado an offer.

The baseball world is waiting with bated breath for the free agency decisions of Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.

A couple weeks after trading for Machado's brother-in-law, they reached a one-year, $4 million agreement with 33-year-old outfielder Jon Jay, according to USA Today, on Monday night. Left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin joined the Nationals this offseason as a free agent, Paul Goldschmidt was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals, infielder Daniel Descalso signed with the Cubs, and outfielder A.J. Pollock remains a free agent.

Enter the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees. He said that the Yankees, White Sox, Phillies, and a potential fourth team are in the bidding and looking for an answer soon. However, while many rumors have floated around that Manny's wife is "enamored" with NYC, there is no indication that the Yankees have even offered Machado a deal... yet.

Rosenthal's sources also confirmed Harper rejected a 10-year, $300 million offer to remain with the Washington Nationals last year.

Ted Lerner, 93, is one of the game's wealthiest owners, and often acts likes one, particularly when negotiating with agent Scott Boras on players such as Harper and Rendon. He hit.249 with 34 home runs, 100 RBIs and an.889 OPS in 2018. He is a six-time All-Star and won the MVP award in 2015.
