Jon Heyman of Fan Cred reports that the Brewers have shown interest in Manny Machado. The Brewers haven't previously been connected to the star shortstop, but it appears they've decided to at least check in on his market. Rotation help has been viewed as Milwaukee's primary need, but they could also use help at shortstop given Orlando Arcia's struggles. How hard they ultimately go after Machado, however, remains to be seen. The Phillies, Diamondbacks and Dodgers have been in on Machado and Heyman hears that the slugger could be traded as early as next week.
