Hold everything! The Manny Machado trade rumors have taken an interesting turn on Tuesday morning,:

Momentum had been building for a deal to send Machado from the Baltimore Orioles to the Philadelphia Phillies, with one report saying a trade was "very close."

That report also said the Yankees appear to be fading in the Machado sweepstakes.

Machado would be an interesting fit for the Yankees. He would most likely be asked to play third base, where he won two Gold Gloves.

Did Nationals' Bryce Harper shave face for Yankees?

General manager Brian Cashman would then have to look at moving rookie Miguel Andujar to first base. Or he could flip Andujar for a starting pitcher, which is the team's biggest need.

Even if the Phillies don't get Machado before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, expect them to be a player when the 26-year-old hits free agency after the season.

Yankees report cards

Both the Phillies and Yankees are expected to make runs at Machado and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, who are the crown jewels of the upcoming free agency class.

That the Phillies are even in the running for Machado before the trade deadline is a testament to how quickly the club turned things around. The Phillies hit the All-Star break with a half-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the National League East.
