The White Sox were one of several teams to meet with Machado. He also met with the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies.

The team is reportedly more focused on Machado at the moment.

He is expected to sign soon. The White Sox begin spring training in February.

Machado has played shortstop and third base in his career. If he does sign with the White Sox, the team would have to potentially move one of their third basemen on their depth chart to a new position.

Presently, the White Sox have Yolmer Sánchez and José Rondón as third basemen on their depth chart.

The 26-year-old Hialeah, Florida native split this season between the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was traded to the Dodgers around the trade deadline.
