The Yankees are refusing to trade any of their 10 top prospects in exchange for Manny Machado, reports the New York Post.
Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Albert Abreu, Tyler Wade, Estevan Florial, Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar are reportedly among those who are off-limits. Although the Yankees are not out of the race for Machado, the Orioles have ramped up talks with the Phillies, as SNY's Andy Martino reported on Saturday. The Dodgers and Brewers are also among the teams interested in Machado.
The Phillies and Orioles have discussed involving Phillies prospects Jhailyn Ortiz, Franklyn Kilome, Adonis Medina, and Arquimedes Gamboa in a trade, according to the New York Post, which reported that some people in the Yankees organization are skeptical that Orioles owner Peter Angelos would be willing to trade Machado without improving his own team's starting rotation.
Machado, who turne 26 earlier this month, has hit .313 with 23 home runs and 64 RBI in 95 games for the Orioles this season.
