their bullpen ahead of Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline Roy Oswalt Jersey , acquiring reliever Brandon Kintzler from the Washington Nationalsfor minor league pitcher Jhon Romero.The Cubs confirmed the move afterMLB.com's Jon Paul Morosifirst reported the news.After being named to his first All-Star team last season, Kintzler has followed it up with another solid performance. The right-hander has posted a 3.59 ERA and a 1.242 WHIP in 45 outings, striking out 31 in 42.2 innings.While his overall numbers may not jump out, Kintzler's splits indicate he can succeed away from Washington. He was 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in 22 appearances at Nationals Park this season http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-lee-jersey , while he is 1-0 with a 1.99 ERA in 23 road outings, allowing just five runs in 22.2 innings.He is 2-0 with a 1.86 ERA in 11 career appearances at Wrigley Field.The 33-year-old reliever is earning $5 million in 2018 and has a $10 million club option for next year, perSpotrac. If the team declines the option, it reportedly becomes a $5 million player option.Chicago has thethird-best bullpenin baseball. However J.R. Richard Jersey , it recently placed closer Brandon Morrow to thedisabled listdue to right biceps inflammation. The front office did recentlyacquireright-hander Jesse Chavez from the Texas Rangers, though.At 61-44, the Cubs hold a one-game league in the National League Central. By adding Kintzler and more bullpen depth, they are not only positioning themselves for the stretch run http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-altuve-jersey , but for a playoff run as well. If Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado is going to be traded this season, he prefers it to be sooner rather than later."Just get it over with already, go on and not answer these questions no more," he said when discussing the trade process Craig Biggio Jersey , per Scott Lauber of the Philly Inquirer. Lauber noted Machado has no interest in having the rumors drag up to the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31.Machado is an obvious trade candidate as that deadline approaches considering he is set for unrestricted free agency this offseason and his 28-69 Orioles are nowhere near contention at 39.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.Baltimore runs the significant risk of losing one of the best offensive players in the league without a favorable trade package to accelerate its rebuild in return if it doesn鈥檛 move him via trade.Machado may get his wish to have the whole situation over with soon consideringJim Bowdenof The Athletic reported a trade is expected to take place during the All-Star break and before the Orioles resume their season on Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays.According toNick Cafardoof theBoston Globe, "multiple teams" are still in contention to land Machado, including the New York Yankees.While there is inherent risk involved in trading for the shortstop given his contract status and the fact whichever team lands him will be forced to part with pieces for a potential rental, he is an offensive force who would bolster any lineup heading into the stretch run and the postseason.He will play in his fourth career All-Star Game on Tuesday and is slashing .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs and 65 RBI. If he continues to produce at such a clip George Springer Jersey , he will eclipse his career-high totals of a .294 batting average and 96 RBI.Which uniform he is wearing after the break remains to be seen, but Machado is apparently tired of waiting to find out.
