But the trade is done, about 24 hours after the Dodgers kicked off the production of jerseys and shirts with stitched across the back.Now the dominoes will fall in a lot of different directions: Los Angeles Dodgers: The addition of Machado and the million he’s owed for the rest of this season chews up just about all of the payroll flexibility they have, in a year in which they have worked to get under the luxury-tax threshold.The Phillies should have opportunities in the next 12 days to add pitching depth and a veteran infielder, like the Royals' Mike Moustakas, as some of the sellers look to dump salaries.
Arizona Diamondbacks, San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies: There’s no getting around this possibility -- Machado could be the difference-maker for the Dodgers in their effort to win a sixth straight NL West title, and no matter who San Francisco, Arizona and/or Colorado lands before the trade deadline, no individual player acquired will likely offset the production Machado will generate for L. But the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants have been engaged with other teams, looking to plug holes.
Rival evaluators say the Diamondbacks are highly motivated to follow up on their fast start, in what may be a narrowing window of opportunity: center fielder A. Pollock and pitcher Patrick Corbin are headed into free agency in the fall.

It is true the Orioles possess some kind of all-time record for deals wrecked by failed medical examinations, and yes, their proposed trade of Manny Machado to the Dodgers was slowed by a snag in the doctor review.
The Giants are looking for bullpen help, albeit with little payroll flexibility, and have talked to the Mets about Jeurys Familia.
The Rockies finished the first half strongly, winning 13 of their last 16 games, and have seen their starting pitching gradually improve.
Atlanta Braves: The Braves were on the fringes of the Machado trade conversations, but never really among the finalists.
