Manny Machado: Decision Coming Within a Week According to Reports

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

The deal is for $4 million for one year, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

Free agency has ground to a halt, including for top talents like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.

Levine stated that Philadelphia's meeting with Bryce Harper in Las Vegas could serve as an "artificial deadline" for Machado's decision. That goes along with what would figure to be an attractive pitch of Machado being the centerpiece of the final phase of the rebuild, playing alongside Eloy Jimenez, Michael Kopech, Dylan Cease and Luis Robert for the next seven years and forming a perennial contender.

According to Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago, the free agent stud infielder will be deciding on a team within a week.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com wrote that there is "momentum building" toward Harper going back to D.C.

House votes to end shutdown despite White House veto threat
Eight of the 11 freshman Democrats who voted against Pelosi are male and all of them are white. That cleared the way for a vote expected later in the evening on passage.

Though it was reported earlier this week that the Yankees had not yet made an offer to Machado, Levine says all three teams have - and that a fourth team could be in on the action, too.

As Rosenthal pointed out, Jay joins a White Sox team that is believed to be in pursuit of free agent infielder Manny Machado, Jay's good friend.

Unfortunately for Chicago, they're not the only team in a position to offer Machado a big contract, and even worse for Chi-Town is that the Sox aren't expected to be very competitive for another year or two.

While a decision may be coming soon, it's still unclear who has the lead in the bidding.
