(670 The Score) The White Sox will meet with star free agent infielder Manny Machado next week, sources told 670 The Score baseball insider Bruce Levine.

Along with outfielder Bryce Harper, Machado is considered to be one of the prized free agents available, and there's no shortage of interest in him. Machado will meet with at least six teams next week, sources said. The White Sox will be among those that get their chance to pitch him.

Machado, 26, hit .297 with 37 home runs and 107 RBIs last season -- all career-best marks -- while playing for both the Orioles and the Dodgers. He played 147 games at shortstop last season, though he primarily played third base in the first five full seasons of his career.

Wielding financial flexibility, the White Sox are considered a legitimate contender for Machado and Harper. The White Sox met with Harper on Nov. 19, touting their young core in the meeting while bringing Hall of Famer Jim Thome along.
