Manny Machado went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.
Machado uncoiled for a two-run bomb off young Tigers starter Michael Fulmer in the fifth inning. At the time, it pushed the Orioles to a 5-4 advantage. Said advantage would be spoiled by J.D. Martinez and Miguel Cabrera in the eighth inning. Sunday's homer was Machado's 11th of the young campaign. He has also driven in 25 runs and scored 30, all while slashing a stupendous .333/.387/.653 over 150 at-bats. May 15 - 5:54 PM

Manny Machado went 3-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Machado also walked twice in the game, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. You can't blame opposing pitchers for avoiding the 23-year-old, as he's been tearing the cover off the ball all season. Machado now has 10 home runs, 23 RBI and 26 runs scored to go with a robust .365/.424/.722 line.
May 10 - 11:27 PM

Manny Machado was a man among boys in Sunday's 11-3 win over the A's, hitting a two-run home run and a grand slam while driving in six.

Machado kicked off the Manny Machado Show with a two-run homer against A's starter Kendall Graveman in the first inning. He wouldn't strike again until the eighth inning, but boy howdy, he struck. With the bases loaded, he jumped on a J.B. Wendelken offering for a grand slam to finish off his lovely six RBI afternoon. The Orioles hit six home runs in the game. In fact, all 11 of their runs scored via homers.
May 8 - 6:02 PM

Manny Machado continued his hot-hitting ways, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in a losing effort against the Athletics on Saturday.

With the two-hit attack, Machado is now hitting a robust .348/.400/.652 with seven homers and 16 RBI on the season. The only surprise for fantasy owners is that he has yet to steal a base after successfully swiping 20 bags in 2015.
May 7 - 4:27 PM

Manny Machado doubled twice in Wednesday's shutout loss to the Yankees.

Machado was the only ray of sunshine for the Orioles. He doubled twice, collecting doubles 12 and 13 on the year, and is now hitting .355/.410/.673 in 117 plate appearances. That's a slash line that even makes Daniel Murphy blush these days. Machado is one of the best five players in all of baseball and will only see his fantasy value increase with more starts at shortstop.
May 4 - 11:09 PM

Manny Machado is starting at shortstop on Tuesday.

Machado was originally penciled in at third base, but the O's have decided to let him play short with Ryan Flaherty covering the hot corner. Machado should get regular starts at shortstop while J.J. Hardy recovers from a small fracture in his left foot.
May 3 - 4:06 PM

Manny Machado will start at third base Tuesday against the Yankees.

Many were expecting Machado to get the first crack to fill in for J.J. Hardy (foot) at shortstop, but he's staying put on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the newly-recalled Ryan Flaherty will start at shortstop. We still think Machado still has a chance to see some time at shortstop, which would obviously be nice for his fantasy value.
May 3 - 3:18 PM

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Machado was the only Oriole with more than one hit. As a team, they did not record an extra-base knock. The 23-year-old slugger is slashing a stupendous .350/.404/.660 with seven homers, 16 RBI and (already) 10 doubles. Almost half of his 35 hits have gone for extra bases.
May 1 - 5:02 PM

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI and three runs scored as the Orioles trounced the White Sox 10-2 on Thursday.

Machado jumped on a slider from reliever Jake Petricka in the sixth inning to turn a relatively close game into a blowout. The homer was his seventh of the season, tying him for second-most in the American League (including with his teammate Chris Davis). The 23-year-old has 16 RBI and 19 runs scored to go with a .333/.389/.678 line through 21 games.
Apr 28 - 10:55 PM

Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with a solo homer, his sixth of the season, in Friday night's loss to the Royals.

Machado stuffs the box score every night, and if Bryce Harper wasn't putting up obscene numbers in Washington, everyone would be talking about the Orioles' third baseman and how he's perhaps the front-runner for AL MVP. He's now hitting .397/.449/.794 with six homers and 10 RBI. He's decent at baseball.
Apr 23 - 12:13 AM

Manny Machado went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.

Two hits and two RBI is just another day at the office for the third baseman, who is now batting .407/.462/.780 with nine RBI and 13 runs scored on the year. He owns a 14-game hitting streak, having hit safely in every game this season, and he leads the AL in batting average, slugging and OPS. There is surely a pitcher capable of slowing the 23-year-old, he just may not have been born yet.
Apr 21 - 11:30 PM

Manny Machado went 2-for-3 with two walks and an RBI in Wednesday's extra-inning victory over the Blue Jays.

Machado kicked off the first inning with a no-out double that scored Joey Rickard. The Orioles learned their lesson and were careful with him late in the game, though. They intentionally walked him in the eighth inning, and they functionally did the same thing in the bottom of the 10th with two outs and a base open at first. It shows that Machado has become one of the most feared hitters in the majors. He's hitting .306/.382/.490, and opposing teams could continue to pitch around him until Adam Jones shakes out of his early-season funk.
Apr 20 - 10:54 PM

Manny Machado collected his fourth homer of the season, launching a solo shot off Colby Lewis in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

Machado led the Orioles' power display on Saturday, but his club ultimately gave up a six-spot in the seventh inning to surrender their early lead. The 23-year-old is now hitting .383/.431/.723 with four doubles and four homers in 51 plate appearances. Fair warning: we'll probably run out of superlatives to throw at Machado by the end of the season.
Apr 16 - 11:31 PM

Manny Machado went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles in Wednesday night's loss to the Red Sox.

Machado elevated his game to superstar status a year ago, and that has carried over into the 2016 season. He's hitting .441/.486/.794 and is one of the premier young players in Major League Baseball. It would've been nice if he avoided getting caught stealing on Wednesday, but after yet another multi-hit performance, all is forgiven. He's a bona fide fantasy stud who should still swipe his fair share of bags before the season is through.
Apr 14 - 12:01 AM

Manny Machado went 4-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rays.

Machado capped off a four-run second inning with his two-run bomb off Jake Odorizzi. It was his third dinger of the first week. In Sunday's win, he also notched his first double of the 2016 campaign. The 23-year-old superstar-in-the-making slashed .286/.359/.502 with 35 homers, 86 RBI and 20 steals over 633 at-bats in 2015. He is a fantasy stud and it isn't out of the question that he could actually post better numbers this season than he did last.
