Manny Machado ‘likes’ Instagram photo of him in Yankees uniform
Manny Machado certainly isn’t doing much to quell the rampant rumors about his future.
On Wednesday, an Instagram account named “Baseballoverload” posted a Photoshopped image of the Baltimore Orioles All-Star infielder wearing a New York Yankees uniform.
Shortly after the post went up, Machado himself “liked” it from his verified personal page.

It’s a particularly intriguing sequence of events since the Yankees have generated significant buzz in recent days as a potential trade destination for Machado. The 26-year-old, who will be a free agent after the season, is not expected to remain with the bottom-feeding O’s past the July 31 deadline.
We recently heard that the Yankees would have to part with a specific player in order to facilitate a Machado trade, but it turns out that the four-time All-Star may actually be rooting for them to get it done.
