Orioles | Manny Machado only concentrating on 3B

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday, Feb. 15, that 3B Manny Machado will concentrate only on third base, and he is not an option to serve as the backup to SS J.J. Hardy even though the team has no clear-cut player at the position. "No," Showalter said. "It doesn't need to be answered, but the question is whether - God forbid - (if) we have a long-term injury to J.J., where do we go? That's why we want to find out our options at shortstop behind J.J."
