The New York Yankees trail the Boston Red Sox in the American League East as the MLB All-Star break approaches, and it sounds like the Bronx Bombers are intent on bolstering their roster for an intense division title race.

Baltimore reportedly wants left-hander Justus Sheffield in any possible deal for Machado.

The Boston Red Sox reached out to the Baltimore Orioles regarding a trade for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, the Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck reported Tuesday.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Monday that "the Yankees are showing increased interest in Machado" but that the Orioles would be hesitant to send him to "their biggest rival".

Giving up Sheffield for a potential rental would be a huge risk for NY, but Machado is good enough to be the final piece for a team's championship puzzle. He has has a.314/.385/.574 slash line with 23 home runs through 91 games.

The Orioles have fielded several offers for their 26-year-old superstar, who is eligible for free agency at the end of the season and is expected to be awarded one of the most lucrative contracts in baseball history.
