On the MLB hot stove front, here's all that's worth knowing for Monday, March 10 ...

- Orioles: 3B Manny Machado agreed to a $519,000 contract for 2014 plus a $100,000 bonus for winning the Platinum Glove award. The MLB minimum for 2014 is $500,000. Machado, who isn't yet arbitration-eligible, called the contract "disappointing," mostly because he wants a long-term deal with the O's and, in his words, to spend the rest of his career in Baltimore. However, the team is likely playing it cautious until Machado proves recent knee surgery hasn't cost him anything in terms of mobility. (Dan Connolly, Baltimore Sun)
