UPDATES & NEWS
Manny Machado was activated from the 15-day disabled list. He is not in the Orioles starting lineup for Game one, but confirmed he'll start in Game two on Thursday.
We didn't expect Machado to be active for both games but fantasy owners can feel confident about getting him active for the second. Don;t be surprised if there's a bit of rust he needs to shake off at first, but once he gets going, he should be a very productive player at a position in dire need of someone to step forward and perform.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
