The Baltimore Orioles reportedly know what the New York Yankees are prepared to give for Manny Machado. Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports has reported that the Yankees have made a “strong offer” for the star shortstop.
sources: yankees have made a strong offer for manny machado. haven't heard they are the favorite, but they are clearly a player at this point. @Ken_Rosenthal said there was "increased" interest from NYY a couple days ago.

With one of the best farm systems in the game and a slew of young talent on the Major League roster, New York certainly has the assets needed to make a good offer.
Baltimore has already reportedly turned down what seemed like a very fair offer from the Los Angeles Dodgers. Given that the Yankees are a division rival, we’d only assume that the Orioles would want even more in a deal with them.
Until the trade deadline comes (or until he is moved), expect to hear a lot of chatter around Machado.
