Despite the red-hot Orioles dropping game one of their four game series against the Royals earlier today (AEST), there was one massive positive.. The performance of debutant Manny Machado.
There's no doubt about it, this kid is one of the brightest young talents in all of baseball, however when bumped up from AA Bowie just 24 hours ago, many thought the 20-year-old was still too green to match it in the big leagues... It seems they were wrong.
The young star eased through his first game at third base, making three plays from three chances, and he also did some damage with the bat, going 2-4 including a rocket which blasted off his bat for a triple and his first safe hit in the majors.
Machado is expected to stay with the birds for a while and may even see out the season if he continues maintains good form. With the O's in the thick of a close wildcard race, the high-pressure experience he'll receive so early in his career is sure to hold him in good stead moving forward.
