Free agent infielder Manny Machado has met in recent days with at least one unidentified suitor, according to major league sources.
There are at least two mystery teams pursuing Machado, in addition to the Phillies and White Sox.
Additionally, the Yankees have kept an open line of communication with Machado's camp, even after signing infielder D.J. LeMahieu, sources say.
This does not necessarily indicate that New York is truly in on Machado; in fact, it remains unlikely they sign him. But the Yankees aren't "out," and won't be until Machado chooses a team.
The Atlanta Braves have also checked in on Machado, but are not believed to be serious suitors.
