During his managerial career, Hargrove spent nine seasons with the Cleveland Indians during which he led them to five consecutive first place finishes in the AL Central and two AL Pennants. He moved on to the Baltimore Orioles in 2000, spending four seasons there, then spent three seasons with the Seattle Mariners. Overall, he has an 1188-1173 record.

The Orioles and Dodgers are expected to finally complete involving SS/3B Manny Machado, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports. The Orioles will receive five prospects from the Dodgers. We’ll have more details about the other players involved later.

Machado, 26, is in the final year of his contract, so this is currently a rental for the first-place Dodgers. Machado ended the first half batting .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI, 48 runs scored, and eight stolen bases in 413 plate appearances. In Los Angeles, he will handle shortstop, allowing Chris Taylor to move over to second base.
