The Orioles, under the guidance of owner Peter Angelos, are notoriously obsessive about the medical reports of potential acquisitions, which makes their proposed trades less ironclad than those of other teams.
Baltimore has had extensive talks with the Philadelphia Phillies, who now employ a number of former Orioles executives who were involved in drafting and developing Machado.
Rosenthal told Machado, "Every indication that you're getting traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers", and asked Machado how he's dealing with the weird situation.

Ostapenko, seeded 12th at SW19, threw everything at her opponent but was not able to haul herself back into the contest at all. Especially at Wimbledon , where she's one victory from an eighth championship. "This is not inevitable for me".
If Machado is headed to the Dodgers, it will mark the second time in a few weeks that Philadelphia has lost out to Los Angeles in the bidding for a high-profile athlete. With the Orioles well out of the playoff hunt and Machado on the final year of his contract before free agency, it made sense that he would be traded as Baltimore attempts to reload with some talent that can help the franchise down the line. "He said, "(Expletive), (expletive) if I know", as Martinez laughed and replied, "No one knows! Another source said Orioles general manager Dan Duquette "likes Philly's pitching [prospects] enough to keep them in it" as of Tuesday morning. He's now hitting.315 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI and what would be a career-best.962 OPS.
The full return is not yet known, but Rosenthal says that outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz is part of the package heading back to Baltimore.
"No, no. I'm putting it on and I'm going to represent the organization in the right way", he said Monday. I'm just anxious about the game today. "There will be a time and place for everything".
