Machado isn't expected to sign with a team until after the new year, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

Per Heyman, Machado has informed the White Sox, Yankees and Phillies -- the teams most closely linked to him in free agency -- that he won't make a decision on his next destination until January. It's possible that a few other suitors emerge in the bidding in the next couple of weeks, which could push back Machado's timeline even further.
