White Sox add another Manny Machado friend

The Manny Machado sweepstakes are nearing its official conclusion.

Chicago has stepped up their game lately by bringing in Machado's brother-in-law Yonder Alonso and his workout buddy Jon Jay, but is that enough to convince Machado to play for a team years away from contending, something Machado has dealt with most of his career with the Orioles?

Troy Tulowitzki and the New York Yankees have finalized a one-year contract for the major league minimum $555,000, giving the team a low-priced option at shortstop while Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Rumors have also begun circulating about a potential fourth "mystery team" interested in Machado.

The pipeline by TransCanada subsidiary Coastal GasLink would carry natural gas from the Dawson Creek area to Kitimat. About 500 people gathered at the B.C. legislature in Victoria chanting and carrying placards.

According to Passan, Tulowitzki is expected to play shortstop for NY while Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery. The White Sox have just $35.5 million now committed to their payroll, according to spotrac.com. Tulowitzki could slot in at shortstop, allowing Gleyber Torres to remain at second base and Miguel Andujar to stay at third.

While the Phillies can lure Machado with cash, the White Sox have taken a unique approach: acquire family and friends of the perennial Gold Glove Award candidate.

The Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers have all been mentioned as potential destinations, but the latest buzz is that Harper might be returning to the Washington Nationals after all.
