Manny Machado went yard for the first time this season with a three-run homer Friday against the Yankees.

His three-run blast in the fifth inning brought the Orioles within one run before Seth Smith put them ahead in the seventh. Machado didn’t steal a single base last season, but he still made fantasy owners happy by establishing new career-highs in batting average, home runs, RBI, runs scored, and OPS. He also qualifies at shortstop in fantasy leagues. It's no surprise that he was an early first-round pick in most formats.

Manny Machado rolled his left wrist while making a diving play on Monday, but he's expected to be fine.

Machado made an absurd play near the line in the 11th inning when he dove to snag a Devon Travis grounder and threw from his knees to nab Travis at first base. He sat on the ground for a bit afterward, as you could see he was in a bit of pain, but he took his at-bat in the bottom of the frame and it looks like he'll be OK.

Playing for the Dominican Republic, Manny Machado went 2-for-5 and homered Wednesday against the Pirates.

Machado has started at third base in back-to-back exhibition games, but the ideal for the Dominican team once WBC action starts would be to put him at shortstop and Adrian Beltre at third. Still, even if that doesn't work out, the team has Jose Reyes, Jonathan Villar and Jean Segura for short.
Mar 8 - 4:53 PM

Manny Machado said Saturday that he has not engaged in any contract extension talks with the Orioles.

Machado also stated that he is interested in staying with the O's long-term. The 24-year-old avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $11.5 million deal this winter after an impressive 2016 season where he slashed .294/.343/.533 with 37 homers and 96 RBI. He isn't set to hit free agency until after the 2018 season, so there's still plenty of time for the two sides to get something done.

Orioles and 3B Manny Machado avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $11.5 million contract.

Machado made $5 million last season, so he's receiving a much-deserved bump in salary. The 24-year-old has batted .290/.351/.518 for the Orioles the last two seasons while belting 72 home runs and providing Gold Glove-caliber defense. He'll be eligible for arbitration for a final time next winter.
Jan 13 - 1:18 PM

Manny Machado went 3-for-6 with a grand slam and five RBI in the Orioles' 11-2 drubbing of the Rays on Tuesday.

Machado's slam in the fourth inning capped a six-run frame for the O's. He's now hit in seven straight games to run his line up to .306/.358/.565 overall. The 24-year-old has 34 home runs, 90 RBI and 95 runs scored and should garner some MVP votes this fall.

Manny Machado blasted one of his club's four home runs on Friday as the Orioles blasted the Yankees 8-0.

Machado belted his two-run homer in the fourth inning, increasing the O's advantage to 8-0. Pedro Alvarez and Chris Davis each smashed two-run shots of their own in the contest while Mark Trumbo added a solo shot for his league-leading 41st blast. Machado finished the night 1-for-2 plus a pair of walks and two runs scored. He's now hitting an impressive .306/.358/.565 with 33 homers and 85 RBI on the season.

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and three RBI in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

Machado was the only bright spot on this night for Baltimore, as he slugged a solo homer in the first inning before going deep again in the sixth, this time for a two-run blast. This was the ninth multi-homer game of his career and his third of the season. He’s batting .305/.358/.564 with 31 homers and 81 RBI through 123 games on the year. While the speed hasn’t been for fantasy owners, he’s poised to blow away his career-highs in the power department.

Manny Machado went 4-for-6 with a homer and four total RBI to lead the Orioles over the Nationals 10-8 on Wednesday.

Machado's two-run bomb in the first inning set the tone for the high-scoring night. He then added run-scoring singles in the second and eighth innings. The four hits raised his batting average to .306 in 494 at-bats. The home run was his 29th. Machado has scored 87 runs and driven in 78. He has yet to steal a base after swiping 20 last year, but that's kind of a side concern at this point for his fantasy owners.

Manny Machado went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

Machado swatted one of the Orioles' six homers on the evening. The dinger was his 27th of the season, giving him 72 RBI and 83 runs scored. He's cooled from his early season pace -- how could he not have, batting .334 with a 1.001 OPS through June -- but the 24-year-old is now hitting .304/.361/.552 overall.

Manny Machado crushed the universe in Sunday's 10-2 win over the White Sox, smashing three homers and finishing with seven RBI.

Look out below. Machado got things started with a two-run home run off poor, poor James Shields in the first inning, then bested that feat just one frame later (again off Shields) with a three-run tater. He then cracked a third homer -- another two-run shot, though not off Shields -- just one inning later. Alas, he was unable to find a hit in any one of his final three at-bats. Regardless, spectacular work by Machado. The 24-year-old third-baseman boasts a .307/.366/.557 triple-slash and has rocked 25 homers and driven in 67 runs over 427 at-bats. One oddity remains, though. Machado has not stolen a base after swiping 20 last season. He has attempted just three in 2016, perhaps a sign that the 20 from a year ago are something of an outlier.

Manny Machado clubbed his 22nd home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Orioles past the Blue Jays.

Machado's solo shot came in the eighth inning and pulled the O's to within a run at 6-5, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the night 1-for-2 plus a pair of walks and scored three of his club's five total runs. Machado is now slashing .309/.370/.554 with 22 homers and 58 RBI on the year.

Manny Machado cracked a solo home run for his only hit and the Orioles' only run of the night on Wednesday.

Machado is having a fantastic season. Now slashing .311/.369/.552 with 21 longballs, 68 runs and 57 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is run -- he hasn't stolen a base all year after swiping 20 last year.

Manny Machado is in the Orioles' lineup Thursday.

Machado sat out Wednesday's game while battling through the same flu bug that has affected Chris Davis and manager Buck Showalter. Manny is starting at third base and batting third Thursday versus the Yankees.
