Manny Machado has officially been traded. He was dealt on Wednesday night from the Baltimore Orioles to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a blockbuster deal.

The Dodgers are sending five prospects in the deal to Baltimore. In the package, it includes the Dodgers top prospect Yusniel Diaz. It also includes right-handed pitchers Zach Pop, Dean Kremer, third baseman Rylan Bannon, along with infielder Breyvic Valera.

The 26-year-old spent his entire career with the Orioles before the trade to the Dodgers. He’ll be a free agent at the end of the season barring an in-season extension with the Dodgers.

Machado played in his final game in an Orioles uniform on Tuesday night in the Major League Baseball All-Star game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The Orioles are also reportedly sending cash along in the deal to the Dodgers.

The last time he put on his Orioles uniform in a regular season game was on July 15th against the Texas Rangers. He had a home run in his lone at-bat in the contest.

He now joins the Dodgers, where he will replace Chris Taylor as the team’s starting shortstop. Taylor has been filling in for the past two months at the position after their young starting shortstop Corey Seager went down with season-ending Tommy John surgery in May.

Machado has a .314 batting average with 24 home runs and 65 RBIs in 96 games through the All-Star break. He also has 21 doubles and one triple in 115 hits.
