The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly agreed to a deal with the Baltimore Orioles that would see them acquire All-Star shortstop Manny Machado in exchange for prospects, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred.

As many as five prospects could be on their way to Baltimore, with a press conference slated for either Wednesday or Thursday. It's believed that the Dodgers' No. 4 prospect Yusniel Diaz is part of the package.

The move would solidify the shortstop position for the Dodgers in the absence of injured Corey Seager and immediately make the NL West leaders the favorites to repeat in the Senior Circuit.

The 26-year-old impending free agent has enjoyed an excellent walk year, hitting .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 21 doubles, and 65 RBIs in 96 games. Machado would rank first on the Dodgers in home runs and second in OPS.

For the Orioles, it gives them pieces for a rebuild and ends Machado's seven-year tenure in Baltimore. The organization selected him with the third pick in the 2010 MLB Draft, and he went on to make four All-Star appearances.
