Report: Diamondbacks most persistent in pursuit of Machado

The Orioles could still reach an agreement before Machado's arbitration hearing. Joseph declined the offer and lost his trial.

The Orioles had two hearings previous year, winning one against Joseph and losing to Brach - the first time the club had lost an arbitration hearing since Ben McDonald in 1995.

The Chicago White Sox reportedly came the closest to striking an agreement with the Baltimore Orioles in December, while the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals also pursed Machado.
