Sunday saw the Orioles beat the Indians 8-0 in the second game of the day-night doubleheader. Manny Machado chipped into the offense with a hit, two RBI, a run scored, and a walk. He also struck out during the course of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Machado has been the brightest spot for the Orioles this season, which has seen key players struggle with lots of injuries. He is hitting .306, with 15 home runs, 41 RBI, and has a .886 OPS. In the early game, Machado hit a home run and had an RBI. Machado has been great since he found his swing, he struggled a lot early on and was very hot and cold at the beginning. But since figuring it out over the last few weeks, Machado is now a most have offensive player that will bring immediate help to any team that needs it. For now we will have to see if he gets selected for the all-star game, and if he can keep it up over the course of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Manny Machado has been a great player recently, since finding his swing. He has helped the Orioles go on an absolute tear and make up huge ground in the AL East and now are only two and half games back.

His season started out just like the Orioles, he was hot and cold and struggling greatly. But he has picked it up recently and has helped the O's get back into contention. It'll be interesting to see what will happen as the season progresses with Machado and the Orioles.

If there is any way to pick him up it will be well worth what you pay, Machado will bring great defense and a good bat to any line-up that is looking for help. It'll be interesting to see what Machado does up until the all-star break.

Fantasy Impact: Manny Machado looks like he has been shot out of a cannon in recent weeks. He has been on fire, and has shown that he can be a consistent offensive threat every time he up. Machado started the season off very slow and was in and out of slumps, but since making adjustments to his swing and stance he has really picked it up. Machado has brought life back the Orioles and has helped them make up significant ground in the AL East. He now looks like a bonafide all-star, and has really been a power threat at the plate. It'll be interesting to see if he gets voted into the game, and if he can keep this up.

While Machado started out very hot and cold, but it seems like he has found his swing. Machado has been leading the resurgence as of late for the Orioles, as they look to bring themselves back into contention in the AL East. While Machado's defense never suffered through his early at bat struggles, he now looks like he is back to being a complete player. He also looks like he is a bonafide all-star and deserves to make the game. Machado can help any team that is looking for a third basemen that can bring power and productivity to a line-up that might be missing it. It'll be interesting to see what Machado will look like as we reach the all-star break.

On Tuesday, the Baltimore Orioles absolutely crushed the Philadelphia Phillies 19-3. Leading the way was third basemen Manny Machado he went three for four, with a single, two home runs, and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Manny Machado has been absolutely on fire lately, he has been able to pick it up after a slow start. In 63 games he has 13 home runs, 33 RBI, and is hitting .282 wit an OPS of .818. He has led the Orioles resurgence as of late, helping them get out of the basement and back into contention in the AL East. While he started off this season very slow slumping a lot at the plate, but now it looks like he is in a groove. While his defense has never been affected, it was his consistency that was the huge issue for the early part of the season. It's time to get Machado if he is still available, he has found his power and is a consistent threat every time he is at the plate. Manny Machado will look to keep this up for the rest of the season, and now should be seriously considered as an all-star.

On Saturday, the Orioles beat the Yankees 9-4 in the second game of their weekend series. Manny Machado was one of the many players that helped contribute to the Orioles offense. Machado went 3-5, with a home run, and four RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This season Machado is hitting .275 in 230 at bats, with 11 home runs, and 30 RBI, he also has an OPS of .802. Manny Machado has been heating up as of late, he has two home runs in his last three, and has been getting on base more consistently. This season has been a tough one for Machado, who has been hot and cold this season at the plate. But his defense has not suffered, Machado is still the gold glove caliber third baseman that he has always been and it is just his offense that is struggling. But this could be a good sign for Machado, who has seemed to find his power lately and is starting to make more contact at key points in the game. Machado would be a good third base pick up for any team that needs to fill that hole. The biggest problem would be his consistency, but it seems that he is starting to pick it up and he can only get better from here in. I would pick him up before it's too late, he can really help a struggling team. It'll be interesting to see what Machado will look like at the all-star break, and beyond.

On Thursday, the Orioles completed the sweep as the beat the Boston Red Sox 6-5. In the game Manny Machado had a solo home run, that helped them to victory.

Fantasy Impact: The home run was Machado's tenth of the season, and his second in five games. Machado this season is hitting .274, with the 10 home runs, and 26 RBI in 59 games this season. Machado is playing to an all star level in the field, but at the plate Machado's production has been off and on this season. Though his season has been tough at the plate, he has been better as of late and is hitting more consistently. If Machado can pick it up, he will not only be helping himself and the Orioles, he would also be a player that you could consistently rely on for offense. Machado looks like he is starting to pick it up now, but how many times as he done it this season just to take a few more steps back. Before you sell your whole team for Manny Machado we will have to wait and see if he can become more consistent at the plate

Fantasy Impact: Machado now has two RBI in the three games against the Tribe this weekend. The RBI was Machado's 25th of the season, and his second one in as many games. Machado also has a .266 ERA in 214 at bats, with nine home runs in the 56 games he has played this season. Machado is off to another all star season in the field, but at the plate Machado's production has been hot and cold this season. Though his season has been tough at the plate, he has been better as of late and is hitting more consistently. If Machado's plate production can pick up, he will really be helping out a hot and cold orioles team. At this point I would pick him up because he would be a good starting player that can add some power, and great defense. Machado will look to keep this offense up as we get closer and closer to the all-star break, and the rest of the season.

On Sunday, the Orioles lost to the Marlins 9-5 in what was a very exciting game. The games saw Manny Machado go deep twice, and score half of the Orioles runs. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Machado has been struggling a little bit this season, he has looked like he lacked confidence at the plate the entire season. Machado has been in and out of slumps all year, but he is still hitting .270 in 185 at bats, with eight home runs, and 22 RBI. Although Machado's numbers have been up this season, his production has been down a little bit having trouble being a consistent threat at the plate. But on the bright side his defense has been good this season, and he has put up some decent numbers early in the season. Overall Machado is still a solid third baseman, and a good middle of the order bat. He would add good depth to a team that is looking for a player that can play solid defense, and can put up some production over the course of the season.

Machado is now hitting .279 in 139 plate appearances, with six home runs, and 19 RBI this season. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Machado had a great game returning to his birthplace of Miami. Macahdo not only had a great night offensively, but he also made a great diving stop to get the final out of the sixth inning and helping the Orioles preserve their 6-4 lead at the time. Machado has looked very good, over the last few games seeming to gain more confidence at the plate leading to more production. After kind of a slow start for Machado he seems to be hitting his stride at the perfect time of the season. I would pick him up now, before someone else grabs him and he gets really hot. If he can continue this he will be on track for another great year.

Manny Machado heating up

On Friday night, Manny Machado went 3-for-3 with three singles, and a walk, in four at bats. Even though the Orioles lost to the Yankees 5-4 on Friday, Machado was a bright spot in the game showing what he can be at the plate. (Source: Baltimore Orioles official twitter)

Fantasy Impact: What does this mean for the struggling Orioles? Machado who has struggled recently at the plate was looking for a rebound game and he got it. Now the biggest question is can he continue it, we've seen Machado have games where he has been a constant threat every time he is at bat. But we have seen the games following where Machado has looked like a completely different person then the night before. Saturdays game against the Yankees will be a good indicator on whether Machado is turning into a constant threat or just sticking to his old ways.

Machado went 0-for-4 in the Orioles game against this Red Sox. This adds to his slow start offensively, bringing his batting average down to .143.

Fantasy Impact: Machado has been playing very well defensively, but started off shaky on offense. His bat should start to heat up, and if he keeps up his defense, look for him to be in your lineup.
