Latest Update Buck Showalter said Manny Machado was taking ground balls in Sarasota Wed Nov, 12, 08:30 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.
Machado was limited to 82 games last season as he dealt with a knee injuries that both delayed the start to his season and caused it to end early.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
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:
