White Sox reportedly remain ‘strong factor’ in Manny Machado pursuit

Manny Machado

Don’t discount the Chicago White Sox in the Manny Machado pursuit.

Machado and Bryce Harper are the top two position players left on the market, players many thought would have been signed by now. The infielder has received strong interest from the White Sox, San Diego Padres, and Philadelphia Phillies, among others.

On Monday, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal described the Sox as a “strong factor” with Machado.

Rosenthal’s piece of information comes a day after reports said the Padres had offered Machado over $250 million. On top of that, a report said the Yankees would consider signing Machado on a short-term deal.

Machado batted .297 with 37 home runs and a .905 OPS last season, split with the Orioles and Dodgers.
