Manny Machado to return to Orioles camp Wednesday
Orioles 3B/SS Manny Machado is back in Florida with the day off today. He will rejoin his teammates in camp on Wednesday.
Machado ended his time with the Dominican Republic at the WBC with a .269 average over six games. He had two RBIs and four runs scored with two doubles and a home run. Orioles teammate Adam Jones (playing for team USA) robbed Machado of his second home run in his final game of the tournament. The best fantasy news to come out of the WBC is that Machado returns healthy and can continue to prepare for 2017 as a potential first-round fantasy talent.
