Fantasy Tip: Machado has one hit in his last six games and is really reeling at the plate. If you have alternatives, consider benching him until he gets his bat going. There is a good chance he'll miss time in the near future, too, so finding a short-term replacement is recommended.

Baltimore says they won't send Machado down to the minors anytime soon, either. If you have other options, this might be the time to bench him for a spell.
