Latest On Manny Machado's Market, Following Meeting With Phillies

According to Curry, New York might be willing to give the infielder an eight-year contract.

Manny Machado completed a three-city tour of potential landing spots in Philadelphia today, where he met with the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park and was taken to dinner by several key members of the organization (links via MLB.com's Todd Zolecki and Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia).

It's always been rumored that Machado would make around $30 million per season.

Machado will meet with the Phillies on Friday, so there is still a chance he won't wind up a Yankee.

A bit of an inconsistent showing with the Dodgers and throughout the postseason, coupled with questionable remarks about not being 'Johnny Hustle, ' have led to a bit of tempered market for the 26-year-old. Signing Machado would put the Yankees in an odd position with Andujar, likely forcing a significant shift in the starting lineup.

Much has been made about the fact that the Phillies are ready to be "stupid" with their spending this offseason. Machado's follow of Segura is intriguing; he has long expressed his interest to play shortstop, however the Phillies acquired Segura to play the position while trading away their former top prospect (of the same position) to land him, J.P. Crawford. Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich also called Machado a dirty player during their matchup in the National League Championship Series. Still, the presumption is the Yankees get whatever they want, so if they want Machado they will make him the proverbial offer he can't refuse. He's expected to sign a deal before Harper.

Unfortunately, Machado didn't hint at where he's going to sign, but he did reportedly spend around four hours meeting with the team, so that's a start.

Last season, he batted nearly.300 with 37 home runs and 107 RBI.
