Manny Machado riles up Internet with now-deleted Instagram post with White Sox baby shoes

The waiting game continues for the two biggest names on MLB's free agent market. 

And just like Bryce Harper trying to foreshadow his future team, Manny Machado sent the internet into a frenzy with a post to his Instagram story. 

The image was grabbed by @Cut4 before the photo was deleted less than two hours after posting. 

Why else would the highly valued free agent post these images of Chicago White Sox baby shoes, then delete?

The White Sox are a team that has consistently been linked to the infielder all offseason. Perhaps they finally struck a deal or Machado is just showing which way he's leaning.

Or it is just a pair of shoes that could be for his brother-in-law, Yonder Alonso (who plays for the White Sox as No. 17) and Machado is toying with us all. 

This offseason is crazy and Twitter responded appropriately.

Harper of course alluded to a big reveal with MLB's The Show - nothing happened. He's still unsigned. 

At the end of the day this means absolutely nothing. Or it means everything. No one knows in this free agency. 

Oh, and pitchers and catchers report this week.

Orioles claim Andrew Velazquez off waivers, DFA Richard Urena

Orioles claim Andrew Velazquez off waivers, DFA Richard Urena

The Orioles made another roster move Wednesday, claiming infielder Andrew Velazquez off waivers from the Indians. The team also designated infielder Richard Urena for assignment in a corresponding move. 

Velazquez, 25, is an infielder that can play all over the diamond. He played 13 games with the Rays in 2018 and 15 total games with the Rays and Indians in 2019. In his 28 career major league games, he’s slashed .152/.222/.242 and has zero home runs. 

Last season, Velazquez hit .083 and went just 2-for-23 during his at-bats. He’s also played third base, second base, shortstop and all three outfield positions in the major league.

Urena was claimed on Jan. 10 off waivers from the Blue Jays. Last season in Toronto, Urena played 30 games and slashed .243/.273/.324 and had zero home runs and four RBIs. He played five positions last season in Toronto, not including an inning where he was a pitcher. 

Should Urena clear waivers, he would stay in camp and the roster would grow to 69 total players.
