According to Jon Heyman, Machado has received offers from the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago White Sox, but the New York Yankees have yet to put a formal offer on the table for the star infielder.
Unfortunately for Chicago, they're not the only team in a position to offer Machado a big contract, and even worse for Chi-Town is that the Sox aren't expected to be very competitive for another year or two.
But by no means should the Yankees be considered out of the running yet.
Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal.

Bryce Harper, the No. 1 or No. 2 free agent on the market depending on how you view Manny Machado, remains unsigned. On the other hand, Philadelphia is preparing another offer for Machado, which should get closer to his reported asking price of $300 million.
It would be quite a shock, from a fit perspective, to see the Yankees out on Machado, who makes so freaking much sense for them and who reportedly really wants to be a Yankee.
Finally, all we can do as fans is await the decision, and hopefully Mr. Levine is correct and it will come sooner rather than later.
