Manny Machado will return to the Orioles on $16M deal

Manny Machado will play for the Baltimore Orioles again on a one-year, $16M deal. The contract includes incentives for awards.

Fantasy Impact

After many rumors of the potential for Machado to leave Baltimore, the two sides will stick together for one more season before he hits free agency next year. Despite struggling with his batting average in 2017, he's still one of the best players at his position in baseball. Camden Yards remains a hitter-friendly environment and Machado should once again be a multi-category contributor drafted in the first round.

Manny Machado could still be moved to Cubs or White Sox

Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports that the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox are both still having conversation about trading for Manny Machado.

Fantasy Impact

Understandably, there are plenty of teams interested in trading for a superstar like Machado. There is a report that Orioles owner Peter Angelos may not approve a Machado trade, but that could just be a move for leverage. Regardless of where Machado lands this winter he will be a top fantasy option at the hot corner in 2018.

Cardinals could pursue Manny Machado via trade

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the St. Louis Cardinals would be one of the teams to ask Baltimore about the availability of Manny Machado.

Fantasy Impact

Machado will be a free agent after 2018 and the Orioles still hope to sign him long term. However, if they feel that's an unlikely scenario they could trade him this off-season if they're blown away. The Cardinals have the prospects to pull that off, but it's still tough to envision a team trading away Machado. He'll be a fantasy monster wherever he plays next year.

Manny Machado rebounds strongly from ugly first half

Manny Machado finished 2017 with 33 homers, 95 RBIs, 81 runs scored, and nine stolen bases.

Fantasy Impact

The superstar infielder also hit .259 with a .782 OPS, but those numbers are misleading because of how poorly Machado hit in the first half of the season. From July 1st on Machado hit .295 with 18 homers. The weak overall stat line could help him become a value in fantasy drafts next spring.

Manny Machado goes hitless

Manny Machado didn't manage to get on base through four at bats during the Orioles' loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Machado had a lot of days like this in the first half of the season. He really turned it around after the All-Star break and reclaimed his must start status. Manny boosted his 2017 slash line to a respectable .261/.313/.476 with 33 homers and 95 RBIs.
