Machado spoke briefly to reporters in the American League clubhouse three hours before the All-Star Game on Tuesday and said he has not received any updates on his status from the Orioles or his agent.

Baltimore has had extensive talks with the Philadelphia Phillies, who now employ a number of former Orioles executives who were involved in drafting and developing Machado.

"I'm going to go out there, enjoy myself, keep playing".

"We've got a great locker room, and I think he would fit right in", Dodgers all-star pitcher Ross Stripling said Tuesday afternoon. "Whatever happens moving forward will happen, and there will be a time and place for everything".

Entering the All-Star break, Machado is batting.315 with 24 homers, 65 RBIs and a.963 OPS.

I don't even remember the last names of each and every one. "We can do more , so if you want to do an arms race you'll lose". Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Mr Trump was trying to "squirm away" from his comments alongside Mr Putin.

If outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz is in fact in the deal, the Orioles would be landing the Dodgers' fourth-ranked prospect, a 21-year-old with a.314/.428/.477 line in Double-A Tulsa in 2018.

Heyman also reported that the Dodgers are committed to staying under the luxury tax threshold, which may mean that the team will send a high-priced veteran player to the Baltimore Orioles as well.

Machado was then asked about the trade on Fox Sports during the game.

It's no surprise the Dodgers are pursuing Machado as fervently as they are, considering they are first in the NL West and lost their star shortstop Corey Seager for the season to Tommy John surgery earlier this year. The New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Indians all were bidding for his services, according to reports.

"To go out there and not know where you're going to be tomorrow, it's kind of tough".
