Orioles' Manny Machado yet to hit stride vs. LHP


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has hit just .217/.269/.304 in 23 at-bats against left-handers this season.

Machado struggled against southpaws in 2014 as well, posting a .642 OPS against lefties and a .802 OPS against righties, but the split has been more pronouced this season, as the third baseman has powered to a .288/.366/.519 line while hitting all six of his home runs against righties.

Machado is set to face Mariners righty Taijuan Walker on Tuesday but then has a pair of matchups against left-handers on Wednesday and Thursday.


Orioles 3B Manny Machado making mistakes in field


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is one of baseball's top defensive players, but he has found himself in a rut recently, committing his eighth error of the season in Tuesday night's loss. 

Machado made just nine errors in 82 games last season, but is in a stretch of 19 games where he had committed eight miscues, many of them on errant throws. Five of his errors have come in the eighth inning or later, per MASNSports.com.

"It's not turning out like it's supposed to be," Machado said. "Keep grinding, keep catching those grounders and keep making those throws."

Orioles 3B Manny Machado batting fifth on Wednesday vs. Mets

Orioles' Showalter: Machado will learn from defensive miscues


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado recently committed six errors in a string of nine games before playing error-free ball Saturday, and manager Buck Showalter remains confident the young infielder will learn from his defensive miscues, MASN Sports reports.

"I think it's kind of good for both us and him," Showalter said. "One, to remind ourselves just how good he is there, because it shocks you when he makes a miscue. And it's also kind of good for Manny to realize that it's a product of a lot of hard work and also getting set up properly and doing some things. I can tell how frustrated he is with it, because he starts swinging the bat a lot better and then all of a sudden he has a couple of miscues."

Machado could have been charged with two errors Friday, but a ball that scooted under his glove was ruled a hit.

"He probably should have had two errors (Friday) night," Showalter said. "That was scored poorly. But he'll learn from it. And I actually look on the positive side of it that's it's something that Manny, believe me, will pay attention to."

Machado has hit .247/.322/.455 with four home runs, 12 RBI and three stolen bases in 77 at-bats.

He doubled and scored in a six-run first inning, then singled twice. His on-base percentage has peaked at .325.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

After an RBI single brought the score to 7-3 in the ninth, the third baseman knocked his second home run of the game to cut the deficit to one run. However, that's as far as the Orioles were able to come, and the Blue Jays managed to complete the series sweep with the win.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Orioles regular shortstop J.J. Hardy is on the shelf for awhile and the team is in need of a replacement for the beginning of the season. Manager Buck Showalter hinted Tuesday third baseman Manny Machado may slide over to shortstop to provide some additional help, reports the Baltimore Sun.

"We are looking at all possibilities, all possible scenarios," Showalter said. "I don't have any doubt that we have a number of guys that could do it, including Manny, but you've got to be careful about robbing Peter to pay Paul."

Orioles' Showalter: Manny Machado primed to have a good year


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who has undergone two knee surgeries the last two years, said he feels 100 percent as the start of the 2015 season nears, per MASNsports.com.

"Feels awesome to finally be healthy and feels good to be out there part of the team," he said. "Just want to help this team do whatever we can and get back to where we need to be. I feel great. Having fun.

"I want to play 162 games and stay healthy. Want to be on the field every day."

Machado is batting just .233 (7 for 30) with no home runs and one RBI through 10 spring games. But it doesn't appear manager Buck Showalter is putting too much stock in spring numbers.

"I think Manny's primed to have a good year. You can tell how good he feels. He's playing with a certain recklessness that healthy people play with," Showalter said.


Orioles' Manny Machado: 'It's great to be back out there'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is in the team's lineup Thursday after going 0-for-3 in his spring debut the previous day while playing in his first game since August, masnsports.com reports.

"It's great to be back out there, great to get it rolling. It's fun to go get some [at-bats] and make some plays," Machado said Wednesday. "I was just excited to be back on the field playing and trying to get back into that rhythm. It's going to take some time, but it's good we're out there playing and running around."

When asked about the last time he was this excited to play baseball, Machado said, "I can't remember. I guess the day before I got hurt, or the day I got hurt. It was just overall a great feeling to get back out there and get in the groove of things and get out there rolling. I'm excited to get out there and get my at-bats and get where I need to be."

Machado was limited to 82 games last season and underwent season-ending knee surgery for the second straight year. He's in the leadoff spot Thursday so that he can receive extra at-bats.

Manager Buck Showalter was happy Machado finally got on the field, according to MASN.com.

"Manny needs to play in some games. He's tired of all the work. You think of all the work he's done since he was able to start going on the field after the surgery and you think about the last time he got to play a lot," Showalter said. "We'll try to get as many reps for him as we can, because physically it's not a challenge for him. He's in good shape."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who was limited to 82 games last season due to injury, is expected to see a lot of playing time during spring training, per MLB.com. Machado is coming off season-ending knee surgery for a second straight year.

I want to get out there and play as much as I can. If I need to go on extra road trip games, I’ll go. If I have to stay back, I’ll stay back. No matter what, I’m just excited to play.”

Machado said he hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from knee surgery and remains hopeful of being ready by opening day.

“I think everything has been going smooth, knock on wood,” Machado said. “Everything’s been going good. I’ve just got to keep my strength up. I’ve got two brand new knees now, so it’s just time to go out there and play and keep do what I’ve been doing, stay on it.”

Orioles' Manny Machado expects to be ready for spring training


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is progressing through his rehab and says he's "ready to roll" for the upcoming season.

"I have a lot of time to get ready. That is the key: having a regular offseason," Machado said Saturday. "Was doing my rehab in Sarasota and then went to Miami to do my regular weightlifting and get ready for the season. Been exciting. Looking forward to spring training."

Machado has taken part in baseball activities for the past few weeks since having surgery on Aug. 27 after tearing a ligament in his knee.

"It will be awesome," he said of the prospect of having a normal spring. "I'm dying to get back on the field. Spring training is key for a lot of players to get your at-bats and your reps. I think some take it for granted but it's a very big key for success for the year."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who's recovering from knee surgery, took part in a minicamp at the team's spring training complex Wednesday and went through a series of drills, according to the Baltimore Sun. He took batting practice and did base-running drills.

For the past couple weeks, Machado has been cleared for all baseball activities fielding except fielding balls side to side. He will meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Machado's surgeon, one last time before the start of spring training in order to receive full clearance. Manager Buck Showalter said he liked what he saw from Machado, but noted that the speed of games will offer Machado another challenge.

"It's been a while since I've felt this healthy," Machado said. "My body feels great. My mind is clear, and I'm excited to get back out there. I'm itching actually. I haven't been itching like this for spring training since my first year of pro ball. I'm just excited to get everything rolling.

"I've been waiting to catch grounders. I could do it. I just haven't really decided to catch grounders. I've just been working on my hand-eye coordination and my glove work."

For the second year in a row, Machado's season was cut short by knee surgery. He hit .278/.324/.431 over 327 at-bats in 2014. It remains to be seen if he'll be limited come spring training.

"He's probably not real happy about having to make the trek over here. He doesn't have to make the trek. It's completely voluntary. That's what I told him on the phone."
