The Diamondbacks have tried to add a little drama to the offseason by "persistently pursuing" Orioles infielder Manny Machado, according to The Athletic.

The Orioles agreed to terms with injured closer Zach Britton that will avoid arbitration and pay him $12 million for his final season before free agency, according to an industry source. Machado didn't have his best season past year, especially in comparison to the numbers he had coming into his previous two arbitration-eligible seasons.

Last year Machado earned a base salary of $11.5 million.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman and second baseman Jonathan Schoop are Baltimore's only arbitration-eligible players without deals. Brach signed for $5.165 million. Schoop is asking for $9 million with the Orioles offering $7.5 million.

African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about 'chain migration, ' it hurts them personally. Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, directs the White House medical unit and has worked as a White House physician since 2006.

The Baltimore Orioles also dodged arbitration with pitchers Brad Bach, Tim Beckham, and Caleb Joseph, so it's a productive day for the "Birds" to be sure.

The Orioles were kept out of postseason contention in 2017, their 75-87 record pitting them in the cellar of the American League East division.

The Orioles had two hearings previous year, winning one against Joseph and losing to Brach - the first time the club had lost an arbitration hearing since Ben McDonald in 1995. Rosenthal characterized Arizona as the most persistent among the interested teams. So that salary should not be a hindrance if the Orioles do trade Machado this year. He has a.279/.329/.476 career slash line, and his 105 homers since 2015 tie him with J.D. Martinez for eighth most among big league hitters over the past three seasons.

MLB.com first reported the Machado agreement.
