Manny Machado went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Nationals on Wednesday.
Machado is now 12-for-21 (.571 BA) with two home runs, three RBI and four runs scored over his last four games as he continues to put together a nice start to July. However, he is still sitting on a .269 average with only nine home runs and 20 RBI on the season, so there is still plenty to be desired in regards to his fantasy value, but this is certainly a nice beginning to what could be a solid second half for this youngster.

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game.
Rubio has played in just one game since March 13 and is likely to miss Wednesday's contest. His absence is crushing fantasy owners that were counting on him down the stretch for high assists totals. It's probable that Rubio will return at some point this year, though it is anyone's guess as to when. Analysis: David Kerr
Kevin Martin (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game.
What started out as a day of rest for Martin last Monday has turned into five missed games. While he certainly can contribute for fantasy owners on most nights, we are at the point in the season, where we can play the waiting game. If there is a similar healthy option on your wire, it's probably a wise move to make the switch. Analysis: David Kerr
