FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Manny Machado went 5-for-6 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored during the Orioles' 8-2 win over the Nationals on Monday.

Just before serving his five game suspension, Machado had two-straight games with a home run and since he's returned, he's got three-straight multi-hit games with another homer here on Monday. For those who can't keep up, that's now a five game hit-streak in which he is batting .440 (11-for-25) with three home runs, six RBI and five runs scored. He may still be battling maturity issues, but at least he's hitting the ball while he's learning.ANALYST: Howard Bender
