Latest Update Manny Machado said he has full range of motion in his right knee. Wed Oct, 01, 03:37 PM
Has good power to all fields and a tremendous arm. His defense at the hot corner is among the best (ever), but he's also capable of playing shortstop. Is also fairly adept at making solid contact.
Flaws: : Struggles at times when he tries to hit home runs too much, so he must avoid being too pull-conscious. Is a bit too temperamental and emotional at times. Injuries can be a factor here, as well.
That's certainly encouraging, but considering the issues he's now had with each leg, we'd like to see him test it out in some winter ball just to be sure. The Orioles may not want to take that much of a risk, but until he shows some durability, he's never going to be a strong option at third.Analyst: Howard Bender
Do not expect him to play. He will be there to cheer on his team as they fight for a playoff spot. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
This hurts the Orioles with Manny Machado going on the DL. Machado just had his second knee surgery in the last year. You will need to look for another third baseman on your fantasy teams. Analyst:
That's what they said last year when Machado had the same procedure done on his other knee. His progress was incredibly slow the last time so while they say he'll be ready for spring training, we'll take that with a grain of salt and just monitor his progress.Analyst: Howard Bender
