Yankees reportedly have not made formal offer to Manny Machado

If the race to sign Machado is truly between the Phillies and White Sox, Machado is expected to decide on a team "within a week", according to 670 The Score's Bruce Levine.

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?

The Washington Nationals' chase of Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies' pursuit of Manny Machado, respectively, are "heating up", a source told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

Levine also reported that "momentum is building" for the White Sox to land Machado despite a front-runner not being clear. Spotrac lists the Phillies at $82.7 million before additions and the Yankees at $120.8 million.

While Tulowitzki helped the Blue Jays reach that year's AL Championship Series, he slumped the next year and then was derailed by injuries.

In other Major League Baseball news, the Tampa Bay Rays are eliminating approximately 10,000 upper deck seats at Tropicana Field next season, giving it by far the lowest seating capacity of any Major League Baseball stadium.

The club said it would add some premium seating to its lower level, but that still will leave Tropicana Field with about 10,000 fewer seats than any other venue.
