This does not definitively close the book on Machado going to NY, which has always been viewed as his ideal landing spot.

According to multiple reports, the Yankees have reached a two-year agreement with former Rockies second baseman D.J. LeMahieu.

Phillies are among a small handful of teams who are in serious pursuit of Machado and free agent outfielder Bryce Harper, both of whom are among the game's most talented players.

If they make no other infield moves, the Yankees would enter 2019 with LeMahieu at second base, Gleyber Torres or Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop and Miguel Andujar at third. And once again, it wasn't Manny Machado.

For the Yankees to truly be out on Machado at this point, he'd have to have offers in hand from the White Sox and Phillies that he knows he would be comfortable accepting, and also he'd have to know that the Yankees definitely will not be approaching those offers. As Jack Curry of the YES Network said on Twitter, "With the addition of LeMahieu, it's another indication that the Yankees appear unlikely to sign Machado".

The Yankees have been considered the Phillies' biggest obstacle to landing Machado because of the idea that he's wanted for years to play in the Bronx. Klentak had previously met with Boras during the winter meetings in Las Vegas last month to discuss a potential move, but Harper was not in attendance. It's unknown exactly what Philadelphia has offered, but it's believed that the Phillies might have indicated to the four-time All-Star that they are willing to pay him around $250 million.
