UPDATE (1:03 a.m. Thursday): Ken Rosenthal reports the White Sox have emerged as “the most aggressive suitor” for Machado. His source says Chicago would want to sign him long-term, but if that doesn’t work out, they would be open to flipping him to another team. Rosenthal mentions the Yankees as a possible match.

Nowhere in the piece does Rosenthal mention the Phillies.

Yeesh.

Well, maybe things are happening after all.

Dan Clark, a writer covering the Orioles, reports there are numerous offers on the table for Manny Machado. Teams interested include the Cardnials, White Sox, Yankees, Giants and Phillies.

No word on whether Machado would accept an extension.

The same Clark tweeted that if he “had to guess,” he thinks the Phillies would land Machado over the other teams. The Orioles have been said to want young pitching in a trade, and the White Sox have a great farm system with pitching ready to compete at the major league level. The Phils, of course, have Sixto Sanchez among other arms.

More to come.
