Orioles, Manny Machado Agree To $16M Deal For 2018

Approaching free agency after the 2018 season, Machado has been the talk of trade speculation with the Orioles likely looming outside of postseason contention next season.

The Baltimore Orioles and third baseman Manny Machado have come to terms on a $16 million contract for 2018, according to a Friday report from Marc Feinsand of MLB.com, who noted that the deal also includes incentives for awards.

Britton, who who is recovering from surgery to fix a torn right Achilles tendon, reached agreement for a $12 million salary this season. The initial timeline for his return was set at six months. However, the two sides were able to find common ground.

It's hard to believe that Machado is only 25 years old, but it's unclear if the Diamondbacks are looking to lock him up to a long-term deal or use as a one-year rental. Schoop made $3.475 million, and Beckham, who is in his first year of arbitration eligibility, made $885,000 in 2017. The left-hander was the best reliever in baseball in 2016, posting a 0.54 ERA and going 47-for-47 in save chances on his way to finishing fourth in the American League Cy Young vote.

Catcher Caleb Joseph received a raise from $700,000 to $1.25 million and shortstop Tim Beckham received a hefty salary from $885,000 previous year (with the Tampa Bay Rays) to $3.35 million for 2018.

Britton earned $11.4 million in 2017. Machado made just $11.5 million in base salary last season, and was projected to receive a $5.8 million raise. Over his career in the majors, Machado has posted a WAR clip of 27.9 He has hit 138 homers with 406 RBIs over the course of 764 games.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman and second baseman Jonathan Schoop are Baltimore's only arbitration-eligible players without deals.
