White Sox reach 1-year agreement with outfielder Jon Jay

There's "momentum building toward" the 26-year-old free-agent outfielder returning to Washington, according to a report from MLB.com, which cites an unidentified league source.

Chicago agreed to a deal with free-agent outfielder and Machado friend Jon Jay, according to USA Today.

Levine stated that Philadelphia's meeting with Bryce Harper in Las Vegas could serve as an "artificial deadline" for Machado's decision.

Bruce Levine of the Score 670, a Chicago sports radio station, reported that Machado will make his free agency decision in the next week.

That's the question many were asking Thursday after a report surfaced the night before saying the Bombers may not be as enthusiastic about signing the superstar slugger as they were a few weeks ago.

While things might be looking good for the White Sox at the moment, the Phillies could be the difference-maker here if only because they seem to be the only team that could significantly outbid the White Sox.

All three of the aforementioned teams have made offers to Machado, with the White Sox not expected to extend one for more than seven years at a top-market price.

While a decision may be coming soon, it's still unclear who has the lead in the bidding.

That is a unsafe game for Machado and his agent, Dan Lozano, to play, because Boras is going to attack the Phillies' contingent of decision makers with fastballs that will make a solid case for his client. He also noted that Machado is receiving offers between $25 and $28 million annually.
