Fantasy Impact:

The move means that Tim Beckham will play third base. Machado has wanted to get back to shortstop for a while and now he finally gets his wish. It's certainly a slight bump for his fantasy value this season as he will qualify at both short and third. Machado played 45 games at shortstop in 2016 but zero in 2017.
