3B - SD
San Diego Padres 3B Manny Machado went 1-for-5 at the plate on Saturday, hitting a solo homer in the Padres' 2-1 win over the Giants.
Machado has been phenomenal at the plate this season as he now has eight home runs on the season along with 25 RBI. The third basemen is one of the best the plate in the league right now as he is batting .358 which is the second best BA in the league and carries an OPS of 1.006 which is good for fourth. The 29 year old is having a MVP caliber season and managers should enjoy it as they got him at a discount in drafts to begin the season.
Manny Machado just continues to roll. He finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored. He also stole his seventh base in the 8-7 win.
Machado's resurgent year just keeps chugging forward. He even came up clutch Friday, hitting an RBI double in a tie game in the 10th, and later came around to score the game-winning run. Machado ranks behind only Aaron Judge in 5x5 mixed leagues so far this season. Congratulations to all that drafted him.

The Padres slugger has cooled off at the plate over the last 11 games with no homers and just one extra-base hit. Machado has maintained a .297 batting average during the 11-game stretch but is just 2-for-16 over his last five games. Nothing to do but ride out the cold streak and wait for the next hot streak from the veteran slugger.
