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.

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.
