NEW YORK (AP) — Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward and San Francisco reliever Mark Melancon let the deadline pass for exercising opt-out provisions in their contracts.Doing the same were two Cuban outfielders who have been major disappointments and spent all of this season in the minor leagues: Boston’s Rusney Castillo and Arizona’s Yasmany Tomas.Heyward keeps the $184 million [url=][/url ] , eight-year deal that pays him $106 million in the next five seasons. The others all have two years left in their contracts: Melancon is owed $28 million, Tomas $32.5 million and Castillo $24.5 million.They all had to make their decisions by Wednesday night.The 29-year-old Heyward, who in 2016 helped the Cubs to their first title in 108 years, hit .270 with eight homers and 58 RBIs in 127 games this season. He is owed $20 million in 2019, $21 million in each of the following two seasons and $22 million apiece in the final two years. If he has 550 plate appearances next year, he would again have the right to void the deal and become a free agent.Melancon [url=]Hector Rondon Jersey[/url] , 33, was 1-4 with a 3.23 ERA and three saves in 41 relief appearances, allowing 11.1 hits per nine innings for the second straight year and a .302 opponents’ batting average in 2018. He has made 73 appearances in the first two seasons of a $62 million, four-year deal and is due $14 million in each of the final two seasons.The 31-year-old Castillo has appeared in just 99 games since agreeing in August 2014 to a $72.5 million, seven-year contract and has not played in the major leagues since he was sent outright to the minors on June 20, 2016.He hit .319 with five homers and 59 RBIs for Triple-A Pawtucket this year and is owed $11 million next year and $13.5 million in 2020. By keeping him in the minors [url=]Anthony Gose Jersey[/url] , the Red Sox ensured his salary would not count on their luxury-tax payroll; under a change made after the 2016 season, he would count if he were brought up and sent outright to the minors again.Tomas, who turns 28 this month, was sent outright to the minors April 2 and hit .262 with 14 homers and 65 RBIs for Triple-A Reno. His $68.5 million, six-year deal calls for $15.5 million next year and $17 million in 2020. If Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado is going to be traded this season, he prefers it to be sooner rather than later."Just get it over with already [url=][/url ] , go on and not answer these questions no more," he said when discussing the trade process, per Scott Lauber of the Philly Inquirer. Lauber noted Machado has no interest in having the rumors drag up to the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31.Machado is an obvious trade candidate as that deadline approaches considering he is set for unrestricted free agency this offseason and his 28-69 Orioles are nowhere near contention at 39.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.Baltimore runs the significant risk of losing one of the best offensive players in the league without a favorable trade package to accelerate its rebuild in return if it doesn鈥檛 move him via trade.Machado may get his wish to have the whole situation over with soon consideringJim Bowdenof The Athletic reported a trade is expected to take place during the All-Star break and before the Orioles resume their season on Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays.According toNick Cafardoof theBoston Globe, "multiple teams" are still in contention to land Machado, including the New York Yankees.While there is inherent risk involved in trading for the shortstop given his contract status and the fact whichever team lands him will be forced to part with pieces for a potential rental, he is an offensive force who would bolster any lineup heading into the stretch run and the postseason.He will play in his fourth career All-Star Game on Tuesday and is slashing .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs and 65 RBI. If he continues to produce at such a clip [url=]Francisco Liriano Jersey[/url] , he will eclipse his career-high totals of a .294 batting average and 96 RBI.Which uniform he is wearing after the break remains to be seen, but Machado is apparently tired of waiting to find out.
