         Looking Ahead

The Indians and Orioles were in contact last month regarding a possible Machado trade, although sources said Friday that the sides aren't actively discussing him now.

Cleveland would certainly be a compelling destination for Machado, who owns a career OPS+ of 116 across parts of six big-league seasons. Machado has said he wants to shift back to his original position of shortstop in 2018, but Cleveland obviously isn't going to move Francisco Lindor off short for anyone. So Machado would land at third, and Jose Ramirez would shift to second base. That, of course, would leave Jason Kipnis without a position. Perhaps he'd be willing to take on a super-sub role (he can play the outfield, as he proved in 2017), or perhaps the Indians would deal him to Baltimore or elsewhere. Either way, a Machado-Lindor-Ramirez-Yonder Alonso infield in Cleveland is a tantalizing hypothetical. 

On the Baltimore side of things, they'd likely be seeking rotation help in any trade for Machado. The Indians have plenty of that, and building a package around Danny Salazar, as Morosi notes, seems likely a starting point.
