Dodgers, Phillies Making Push For Manny Machado

Jun 29, 2018 7:57 AM

The trade market for Manny Machado is heating up once again and the Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies are the most aggressive suitors at this point, according to a source.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs are also contenders to acquire Machado from the Baltimore Orioles.

It remains unlikely that Machado is dealt until closer to the July 31 non-waiver deadline. He is also headed for free agency, which complicates the cost of acquiring him for what could be just a half-season.

The Dodgers' team record for home runs in a game is eight.

Clayton Kershaw To Have MRI On Back

Jun 1, 2018 7:42 AM

Clayton Kershaw's back tightened up during Thursday's start, his first for the Los Angeles Dodgers since a stint on the disabled list.

Kershaw won't travel with the team for a weekend series in Colorado, instead remaining in L.A. for tests. Dave Roberts said the tightness was in Kershaw's "mid to lower" back.

"With Clayton's history, there is some concern," Roberts said. "We want to make sure that he is well and good."

Kershaw threw 62 pitches over five innings against the Philadelphia Phillies. He gave up four hits and a run while walking one and striking out five.

"It's beyond frustrating," Kershaw said. "You feel like you're out of the woods and feeling good and then this creeps up on you. I'm frustrated that I can't contribute to the team."
