Orioles | Manny Machado ejected

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:31:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado was ejected from Game 1 of the doubleheader Thursday, May 28, against the Chicago White Sox. Machado argued a strike call on a check-swing attempt to end the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is well known for his fiery temper that can occasionally lead to shortened outings. When able to stay on the field, Machado is an excellent FantasyScore asset, with the ability to steal bases and hit home runs. With Chris Davis heating up behind him in the order, Machado can be regularly used.

Orioles | Manny Machado setting the table vs. Yanks

Thu, 07 May 2015 13:23:51 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado is batting leadoff and playing third base against the New York Yankees Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), not your stereotypical table setter, has just five games and 24 plate appearances as a leadoff hitter on his resume. While his RBI opportunities will likely suffer, he could see an extra at-bat and his upside of touching home plate increases atop the lineup. FantasyScore players should view Machado as a solid option Thursday, as he is riding a nice 18-for-50 streak with 12 runs, four home runs, nine RBI, four stolen bases and a 1.074 OPS.

Orioles | Manny Machado hitting leadoff

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:44:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado is hitting in the leadoff spot Tuesday, May 5, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting .371 (13-for-35) with three homers and a stolen base over the past 10 games, so manager Buck Showalter has him higher in the lineup to juice the offense. He'll get more at-bats, so he's worth the money.

Orioles | Manny Machado leading off

Sat, 02 May 2015 13:22:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado will hit out of the leadoff spot Saturday, May 2, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) struggled to open the season but he has at least one hit in all but one of his past eight games played. Strikeouts remain an issue for Machado, but three of his four home runs for the season have come during this recent stretch. Chris Archer will start for the Rays and he's a difficult adversary, but Machado has been hitting .293 in 67 plate appearances against righties so far this season.

Orioles | Manny Machado promoted to two hole

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:12:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado is batting second against the Boston Red Sox Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Jumping up the order stands to help Machado's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) ability to score runs, but it'll slightly hurt his RBI potential. He is coming off a two-homer game, and FantasyScore players should look for him to continue his current offensive surge and extend his three-game hitting streak.

Orioles | Manny Machado's bat waking up

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 21:05:48 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, April 23, and he has multiple hits in three of his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has raised his average from .132 to .218 over the five-game stretch, and he could keep the momentum going Friday against Boston starter Rick Porcello, who brings a 6.63 ERA into the game. Don't be afraid to look Machado's way at FantasyScore.

Orioles | Manny Machado drops one in seats

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:09:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado cracked his first home run of the season Wednesday, April 15, against the New York Yankees. It was his only hit in four at-bats. He also had a walk and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Machado has struggled at the dish to open the season, but perhaps the homer will jump-start him heading into weekend series at Fenway Park against the Red Sox. Over his career he is a .311 hitter (19-for-61) with five doubles, two homers, 10 RBIs and an .840 OPS at Fenway.

Orioles | Manny Machado looking good

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 12:40:37 -0800

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) continues to be a full-go in spring workouts, and he's taking part in all infield drills. "He looks good," manager Buck Showalter said. "His face is good. You get to the point where he almost looks bored. It's kind of where he is. It's not step, 'is that going to hurt?' Step, 'is that going to hurt.' So far so good."

Fantasy Tip: It's good to see Machado doing well early in camp, but we'll need to see some more before the season starts to feel comfortable investing a middle-rounds selection on the young third baseman after two knee surgeries this early in his career.

Orioles | Manny Machado a full-go in camp

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:22:41 -0800

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) is a full-go in camp after having a second season-ending knee surgery last year. "I'm just going out there being myself," Machado said. "Playing how I've always played. Just trying to get that feel for it again." Machado played in only 82 games last year because of the injury, but he figures to see plenty of playing time this spring. He hasn't had any setbacks this year as he looks to be fully healthy for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: There is a clear element of risk when selecting Machado in fantasy baseball drafts. Will he continue to be an injury-prone player throughout his career? If you choose to run with him as your starter at the hot corner, make sure you are well protected. A slow start to the year could be in order, as well.

Orioles | No restrictions for Manny Machado

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:15:39 -0800

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) will have zero restrictions on him in spring training this year, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: Machado's upside remains intriguing, but he's now had surgery on both of his knees, making him a big injury risk at a position that can be scary if you strike out on your target. Keep a close eye on him this spring to see how he fares with plenty of work.
