Manny Machado’s father claims these four teams have made offers to slugger

Manny Machado

There has been a lot of information leaking out in recent days about Manny Machado and the offers he has or hasn’t received, and it should come as no surprise that the slugger’s father says numerous teams are trying to sign his son.

In an interview with Dominican reporter Hector Gomez on Friday, Machado’s father Manuel said Manny has outstanding offers from four different teams, and at least one of them will surprise you.

Manuel added that where Manny ends up could surprise people.

Several reports have claimed the White Sox made Machado an offer, though there are plenty of questions about the dollar amount. The Phillies are also said to be intent on signing either Machado or Bryce Harper, so they may have extended a formal offer. However, Jon Heyman of Fancred says neither the Yankees or the Dodgers have made one.

There have been reports that Machado would prefer to sign with the Yankees, so they are probably waiting things out to see how the market unfolds. As for the Dodgers, Machado already seemed to bid farewell to them in a social media post, and there has been zero indication that they are interested in bringing him back.

Of course, anything Machado’s father says about the market for his son can be taken with a grain of salt. We saw by the way Machado’s agent slammed some recent reporting that the All-Star’s camp is not happy with the information floating around, and his father is part of that camp.
