The Orioles have the structure of a deal in place, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.
Machado, who will play in his fourth All-Star Game on Tuesday night, is hitting .315 with 24 home runs and 65 RBI this season.
The soon-to-be unrestricted free agent won the AL Gold Glove in 2013 and 2015.
The Dodgers (53-43) lead the NL West by 0.5 games and are four ahead of the Giants (50-48).
