Manny Machado is settling in nicely with the Los Angeles Dodgers Billy Hamilton Jersey , and there's an excellent chance he can be the piece the team needed to remain in front of the National League West through the regular season. Perhaps the ex-Baltimore Oriole's presence will be enough to get the Dodgers back to the World Series once again.Other trades will likely be executed before the July 31 deadline, and the Orioles could be involved in more of them, and it would not be a shock if the New York Yankees become a trade partner.Teams usually don't like to trade within their own division, but it appears the O's are multiple seasons away from contender status, so they might not mind making a deal with one of their traditional rivals.As strong as the New York bullpen appears on paper, there have to be a number of concerns with left-hander Aroldis Chapman. He had a disastrous performance Saturday against the New York Mets in which he could not retire a batter with a big lead in the ninth inning, and if he had not been rescued by Chasen Shreve, the Yankees could have allowed a sure victory to turn into an embarrassing loss.But even if Chapman was performing better, the Yankees would still have an interest in Oriole reliever Zach Britton. When Britton is on his game Anthony DeSclafani Jersey , his power sinker is a nearly unhittable pitch.According to MLB Network'sJon Heyman, the Yankees are one of seven teams with interest in bringing Britton aboard.The other teams include the Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros and Dodgers are all involved in the possible transaction. Heyman also tweeted that other teams could also pursue Britton.Britton has a 1-0 record with a 3.45 earned-run average and four saves in his 16 appearances since his Achilles injury kept him out in the first part of the year.General manager Brian Cashman is never going to be satisfied with his roster until the Yankees bring home another World Series title, and since they are five games behind the Red Sox in the American League East, there is much to do.The changes on the roster could come in the form of J.A. Happ of the Toronto Blue Jays or Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers.Happ or Hamels could fill the role of a No. 4 or 5 starter, but the key is the price the Yankees will have to pay to pick up one of the two pitchers.Neither pitcher would require the Yankees to give up a top prospect like pitcher Justus Sheffield or center fielder Estevan Florial http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-adam-duvall-jersey , according to Andy Martino of SNY.tv. Instead, it would most likely require the Yankees to give up a solid minor leaguer.That still may be too high a price for the Yankees at this point.However, as the trade deadline comes closer, Cashman may have to change his assessment if the Bronx Bombers are going to complete a deal for starting pitching depth. MILWAUKEE (AP) — It’s going down to the last day of the regular season to decide the NL Central.The Milwaukee Brewers moved into a tie for first place with the Chicago Cubs with one game remaining, getting two homers from Triple Crown candidate Christian Yelich to beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 on Saturday night.Yelich turned on an 0-1 pitch from left-hander Daniel Stumpf (1-5) and lined it into the second deck in right to break a 5-all tie in the seventh inning. The left-handed slugger also hit a two-run homer in the third inning of the Brewers’ sixth straight win.Seemed like a good time for the typically even-keeled Yelich to show some emotion in a curtain call.“First one ever, so. I don’t really know what to do,” Yelich said.The raucous fans at Miller Park chanted “MVP! MVP!” after Yelich’s go-ahead shot in the seventh. He obliged with a brief appearance, lifting his helmet in the air about halfway up the dugout steps.“Everyone was yelling at me to get up there, so I went up there really quick and went right back down Michael Lorenzen Jersey ,” he said.The Brewers (94-67) were already assured of making their first playoff appearance since 2011, the last time they won the NL Central. They sure would like to get into the postseason again as a division winner, and Chicago opened the door by losing 2-1 to St. Louis earlier Saturday.“Yeah I’m sure it will be pretty crazy,” Yeich said about what to expect on Sunday at Miller Park. “You play all those games and it still comes down to 162.”If the Brewers and Cubs are still tied after Sunday, the teams will face each other on Monday in Chicago for the title.The NL MVP race, on the other hand, may be over after Yelich’s September to remember.He extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 2 for 3 and driving in three.The NL batting leader is also challenging for a Triple Crown , tied with St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter for the home run lead at 36. With 109 RBIs http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , Yelich is two behind the Cubs’ Javier Baez.“We’re sitting here every night and I say it’s reached a new level and then it reaches a new level. It’s just special, man,” manager Craig Counsell said.Joakim Soria (3-1) got the win with a scoreless seventh. Jeremy Jeffress picked up his 15th save, striking out the side in the ninth.The bullpen held the Tigers scoreless over the final three innings after a few shaky moments in the middle of the game.Seventh-place hitter Dawel Lugo lined a triple into the right-field corner to lead off the sixth. Pete Kozma, a .209 hitter, then drove in Lugo with a sacrifice fly to left to tie the game at 5.But the Brewers bounced back behind Yelich again.“I just went with what was feeling good tonight and I got ahead and I ended up spinning one up there. That one didn’t go in my favor,” Stumpf said.CALL IT A COMEBACKYelich also helped spark a comeback from a 3-0 hole in the third. He homered into the Brewers’ bullpen in left after leadoff hitter Lorenzo Cain hit an infield single to draw within 3-2. The Brewers strung together four straight hits in a three-run fourth, capped by Kratz’s two-run single.Niko Goodrum had an RBI single in the first and a two-run triple down the right-field line in third to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead.Starter Daniel Norris retired eight of the first nine batters before running into trouble after giving up Cain’s infield single with two outs in the third.Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said the close games in an electric atmosphere will help his young team in the future.“You need to see what it’s like. It makes you hungry to get back,” he said.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: After sitting out Friday Jonathan Lucroy Jersey , OF Christin Stewart was shut down for the final two games of the weekend with an abdominal strain.UP NEXTTigers: Rookie Spencer Turnbull (0-1) takes the mound for the season finale. The right-hander recorded his first quality start in the majors on Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits in six innings against Minnesota.Brewers: Counsell named LHP Gio Gonzalez (9-11) the starter for the finale. Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 2.66 ERA in four starts since being acquired in a trade with the Washington Nationals.“For me, I try to take it as just another day, give them whatever they need,” Gonzalez said, “and after that, rely on the team.”
