Dodgers have a history of making trade-deadline deals and need to deal for another Manny

The Dodgers are determined to remain under the $197-million luxury-tax threshold, but that shouldn’t be a significant obstacle. They are believed to be around $10 million under that figure, meaning they can add whatever remains of Machado’s $16-million salary and still invest in a link from the starting pitchers to All-Star closer Kenley Jansen.
