The Dodgers are expected to land Machado any day, a trade that could turn the division’s balance of power and put more heat on the Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants. “Ooph, OK,” Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said when told of the Machado-to-Los Angeles reports. “Any team that gets him will have an immediate impact, for sure.

WASHINGTON — Jesus Luzardo pitched Sunday where everyone expected him to pitch as a big-leaguer. Until the A’s came calling.
