|Red-hot Manny Machado clubs another homer |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/19/14) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado continued his resurgence Friday, as he clubbed a late home run in a 5-4 loss to the Athletics.
Machado drove in two runs with his seventh-inning homer, to put the Orioles up, 4-2. Unfortunately, the bullpen could not make that lead stand up, as Machado's blast went to waste. He finished the game 2 for 4 with two runs driven in and one scored in the loss.
Machado has been red-hot in the month of July, hitting .486/.514/.829 with three home runs and five RBI in nine games since returning from a suspension.

(7/18/14) Orioles infielder Manny Machado doesn't expect any issues in Oakland, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Machado drew a five game suspension the last time the two teams played each other, but doesn't anticipate any bad blood this time around. "I’m past it already," Machado said. "We’re just going to go out there and take it like it’s another day. I’m going to go out there and play my game."
Machado said he hasn't even thought about playing the Athletics again, he just wants to start the second half on the right foot. Machado is hitting .270/.319/.422 over 244 at-bats.

Over his last eight games, Machado has five homers, giving him nine this season in 234 at-bats.
|Manny Machado rounding into form |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/8/14) With another home run Monday, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado now has four in his last seven games. He's batting .404 (19 for 47) in his last 11 and beginning to show the potential that had everyone so excited before his knee surgery late last season and ugly encounter with the Athletics a few weeks ago.
At age 22, he's only begun to scratch the surface of his potential -- potential so great that it earned him comparisons to Alex Rodriguez when he was drafted back in 2010.
Obviously, he doesn't deserve as much trust as Josh Donaldson, Adrian Beltre or even Todd Frazier, but if you're stuck at 5-9 and need to make some magic happen to move up in the standings, trading one of those more established types for, say, Brandon Moss or Alex Gordon along with Machado, knowing his big breakout could potentially come this year, might be worth the gamble.
Again, I'm not saying Machado is as valuable as Donaldson, Beltre or Frazier yet, but he has a chance to get there. And depending on your specific circumstances, it could be a game-changer for you.
|Manny Machado finished 2013 with a .283 average, 14 home runs, six steals, and an American League-leading 51 doubles. Machado saw a significant drop-off at the end of the season (a .194 average with five doubles over 22 September games), before it came to a close early with a torn knee ligament, suffered when Machado stepped awkwardly on first base in late September. Machado had surgery in mid-October, but he's expected to miss time at the beginning of the season as he continues his rehab (which is generally six months for this type of operation). When he does return, expect Machado to have some rust early on, but eventually return to the player he was in 2013 -- a .280-ish average, lots of doubles, and a combination of home runs and steals that equal about 20. While his timetable shouldn't have too much of an effect on his draft position, he could miss as much as a month, making him a solid selection in the early part of the middle rounds heading into 2014.
