The Baltimore Orioles and third baseman Manny Machado have come to terms on a $16 million contract for 2018, according to a Friday report from Marc Feinsand of MLB.com, who noted that the deal also includes incentives for awards. They also have a few players set to be free agents after the season and might want to make a push in 2018 before potentially losing guys like A.J. Pollock and Patrick Corbin. However, the two sides were able to find common ground.

There are plenty of reasons why Machado would make sense for Arizona.

Britton, 29, was limited to 38 games while battling an MCL sprain in his left knee and had a 2.89 ERA and 15 saves. Schoop agreed a year ago to a $3.475 million contract, but after a Most Valuable Oriole season in 2017 the second baseman will more than double his salary.

Britton earned $11.4 million in 2017.

Britton was the first to sign, agreeing to a one-year $12 million deal, up from $11.4 million in an injury shortened 2017.

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.

Catcher Caleb Joseph received a raise from $700,000 to $1.25 million and shortstop Tim Beckham received a hefty salary from $885,000 a year ago (with the Tampa Bay Rays) to $3.35 million for 2018. The 27-year-old former No. 1 draft pick hit.306 with 10 home runs and 26 RBIs in 50 games with the O's after being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays ahead of last year's trade deadline.

The 25-year-old All-Star was one of the highest-profile arbitration-eligible players this offseason.
