According to Jayson Stark of The Athletic, there Orioles have a "handshake agreement" with another team regarding a deal involving Machado.

Nightengale reports that the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers are still in talks with the Orioles for Machado, so the situation is fluid and could change rapidly.

The trade would greatly benefit the Dodgers, who lost shortstop Corey Seager in May due to season-ending Tommy John surgery. Based on that list, Diaz would be the Orioles second-ranked prospect. Given that Machado is owed the balance of a $16 million salary for 2018 and given that the Dodgers are right up against the tax threshold, they'll need some cash from Baltimore or to send a pricey contract the other way.
