|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 homers in five-hit night Monday |

(7/7/14) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado enjoyed a breakout offensive performance Monday, going 5 for 6 with a double and a two-run home run in his team's 8-2, 11-inning win over the Red Sox.
Machado's blast was the third of the 11th inning and put a cap on his biggest performance of the season. He has put together three straight multi-hit games, and Monday's five-hit night raised his batting average 15 points on its own. He has hit .261/.308/.404 with eight home runs and 19 RBI in 230 at-bats.

|Manny Machado to begin serving five-game suspension |

|Manny Machado clubs seventh home run Sunday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/29/14) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 12-7 loss to the Rays Sunday.
Machado has endured a disappointing offensive season but has heated up over the past week, smacking home runs in three of his last four games. He'll look to build upon his increased power stroke in the second half to improve upon a .239/.291/.371 line with seven home runs and 17 RBI in 213 at-bats.
|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.
