Orioles Trade Rumors: Baltimore Fielded Inquiries On Manny Machado

The Baltimore Orioles are stuck in a weird spot where no one knows if they're buyers, sellers or looking to stand pat before Friday's MLB Trade Deadline. That hasn't stopped other teams from inquiring on a litany of Orioles players, including young All-Star third baseman Manny Machado.

Of that group, starting pitcher Kevin Gausman may be the most likely to go before tomorrow afternoon. The Orioles have been reportedly shopping him for weeks now, dangling him as a centerpiece in their reported quest to land an impact bat.

As for Machado, there is very little chance that Baltimore would even consider moving him -- even for a blockbuster return. The 23-year-old is under contract for $548,000 this year and has three years of arbitration eligibility left before he is slated to hit free agency (following the 2018 season).

Machado is having a career year in 2015, slashing .292/.360/.513 with 21 HR and 51 RBI in 384 at-bats.
