The post went viral Wednesday, leading the New York Daily News to feature Machado in pinstripes on its back page.

The Orioles have been actively listening to trade offers from several teams for the All-Star shortstop, including a reportedly “strong” package from the Yankees.

Machado will become a nonrestricted free agent this winter and is expected to sign one of the most lucrative contracts in baseball history.
