While the focus has been on the Bryce Haprer when it comes to the Phillies this weekend, it looks like they may be the favorite now to land Manny Machado. 

The Yankees have signed free-agent second basement DJ LeMahieu, giving them an abundance of infielders. 

It appears they are likely, not definitely, out on Machado now. 

And now, it seems like a two-horse race for Machado between the White Sox and Phillies. 

"The Phillies' interest in Harper is real, but for months it has been clear that Machado is the team's priority," NBC Sports Philly's Jim Salisbury wrote on Friday

The Phillies plan to meet with Harper in Las Vegas on Saturday and Bob Nightengale still believes the Phils will sign Harper.

Could the Phils really get both? Things are heating up!
