The Baltimore Orioles attempted to extend Manny Machado "several years ago," according to a report.

Machado was dealt to the Los Angeles Dodgers in July for a package of five players.

At an undisclosed time in the past, the Orioles were prepared to pay Machado $64 million to remain in Baltimore for the next eight years. Multiple people familiar with the negotiations remember that the contract would have represented "by far a record" for a player with that limited service at that point in time.
