Orioles | Joey Rickard, Manny Machado go deep

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:25:07 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard and 3B Manny Machado hit consecutive home runs in the first inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, May 20. Rickard went 2-for-5 with two RBI during the game, while Machado went 2-for-4 with one RBI and three runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard is hitting .250 so far in May but has only four RBI during that span. He is an everyday player for the Orioles and is a starting option in deeper mixed leagues. Machado has only four hits in his last seven games but should be a starting option since he is hitting over .300 this season.

Orioles | Manny Machado entering rare territory

Fri, 13 May 2016 12:11:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B/SS Manny Machado is just the 10th player in the past 100 years to record 25 extra-base hits through his team's first 25 games, and he is just the sixth player to hit 75 home runs and win two gold gloves before turning 24.

Fantasy Tip: With shortstop eligibility and a huge start, Machado is in the running for top fantasy player thus far. He is absolutely on fire at the dish with 29 runs, 10 home runs, 23 RBI and a .360/.416/.691 slash line. There is potential Machado may still be undervalued in some circles, so it doesn't hurt to test the trade waters.

Orioles | Manny Machado logs 10 SS games

Tue, 10 May 2016 23:40:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado played his 10th game at shortstop Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: This should open up shortstop eligibility in a lot of formats. With a .365-10-23 line on the season, he was already an elite fantasy player. The added eligibility could put him in the top three or four in fantasy baseball. He's a daily no-brainer in DFS.

Orioles | Manny Machado carries offense in rout

Sun, 08 May 2016 14:43:35 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B/SS Manny Machado clubbed a two-run homer in the first inning, then swatted his third career grand slam in the eighth en route to a 11-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: It appears we're going to run out of superlatives long before Machado stops performing like a fantasy first-rounder. The six RBI are a career high for the 23-year-old, who ended an eight-game streak without a home run or RBI. However, he's been doing OK over that same 10-game stretch, recording seven multi-hit games. Machado is up to nine homers and 22 RBI for the season, and is an obvious must-start in all formats.

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:44:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles Wednesday, May 4, against the New York Yankees to push his hitting streak to six games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado is 11-for-24 (.458) during his six-game run, and he five multi-hit games during the span. He continues to mash, and is a must-start in all fantasy formats and a great DFS play as well.

Orioles | Manny Machado handles SS well

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:55:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado started at shortstop Tuesday, May 3, against the New York Yankees with SS J.J. Hardy (foot) on the 15-day disabled list. Machado handled all his chances without incident while 2B Ryan Flaherty slid over to third and was effective. He has a .450/.522/.750 slash line over his past five outings, posting four multi-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado went 1-for-3 with a walk, hitting safely for the fifth straight game after a four-game hitless skid from April 24-27. Machado remains a must-start fantasy option, and his ability to bounce back is why you never bench him despite a cool streak.

Orioles | Manny Machado playing shortstop Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:58:39 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado moves over to shortstop to face New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Tuesday, May 3. 2B Ryan Flaherty is starting at third base and is batting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: With J.J. Hardy (fractured foot) on the DL, expect this setup to be the norm for a while. Flaherty is only a depth option in AL-only leagues. The biggest thing to note is that Machado should now gain shortstop eligibility this year and for the 2017 season. He's already one of the top third baseman in the league, and this could vault him to a top-three fantasy pick next year.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy out 6-8 weeks

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:28:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) was diagnosed with a hairline fracture on his left foot, and he's expected to miss six to eight weeks. Hardy will land on the disabled list. He was hitting .244/.291/.410 with seven doubles, two home runs and eight RBI in 22 games. 2B Ryan Flaherty is expected to be called up from Class AAA Norfolk to replace Hardy on roster. 3B Manny Machado can slide over to shortstop, with Flaherty seeing the bulk of starts at third base.

Fantasy Tip: You can find healthy and possibly more productive shortstop options to replace Hardy in most mixed leagues. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez could also slide to third base, but moving Machado over likely makes the most sense. That'll likely give Machado shortstop eligibility this year and next, which could vault him to a top-three pick in 2017 drafts. Flaherty could be useful for depth in AL-only leagues if he sees enough playing time.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy departs with foot injury

Sun, 01 May 2016 13:01:32 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) left the game on Sunday, May 1, against the Chicago White Sox after fouling a ball off his left foot. 3B Pedro Alvarez replaced him in the batting order, while 3B/SS Manny Machado slid over from third to play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: The Orioles figure to make some kind of announcement about the seriousness of this injury in the next few hours. Baltimore doesn't lose much offensively as a result of the injury, although its defense takes a big hit. Hardy is a fringe fantasy option and shouldn't be out too long, however, so continue to use him as you normally would.
