Manny Machado News
San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado wrapped up another solid season in 2021, compiling a .278/.347/.489 slash with 28 homers, 12 stolen bases and 198 runs-plus-RBI over 640 plate appearances. Despite the Friars cratering in the second half, Machado remained a reliable force in the lineup, placing third in the NL with 106 RBI while playing Gold Glove-caliber defense. With seven years remaining on his contract, the 29-year-old should again co-lead the Padres with star shortstop/outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. in a bounceback 2022 campaign. One of baseball's most consistent players, Machado should again settle as a top-5 hot corner option in offseason fantasy drafts.
San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado is heading to the bench for Thursday's game against Logan Webb and the San Francisco Giants. The timing of the day off for Machado is a bit surprising given the fact that the Padres are in a tailspin and desperate for wins. They've dropped five straight and 10 of their last 12. Despite the recent losing streak, Machado has been red hot at the plate lately. He's put together four consecutive multi-hit games, including a two-homer outing on Tuesday. Ha-Seong Kim is drawing the start at third base for Thursday's game. Expect to see Machado back in action on Friday.
San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado has been heating up at the plate lately. He has strung together four consecutive multi-hit games, including a two-homer game on Tuesday. He's slashing .329/.372/.534 over the month of September as a whole. The 29-year-old veteran has had a bit of a disappointing season overall, especially considering his stellar .304/.370/.580 slash line last year. Through 143 games in 2021, he's slashing .282/.348/.493 with 26 home runs, 12 stolen bases, 96 RBI and 89 runs. He has a career-high 52.3% hard-hit rate this year, which is up from 43.5% last year. He also ranks in the 96th percentile in average exit velocity (93.1 mph). We'll see if he's able to stay hot and close the year out strong.
San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado had one of the best seasons of his career in 2020, a major bounce-back from 2019 when he slashed just .256/.334/.462 with a strikeout rate of 19.4% and a barrel rate of 8%. In 2020, he had a slash line of .304/.370/.580 and hit 16 home runs with 47 RBI and 44 runs. He lowered his strikeout rate to 14.6% and increased his barrel rate to 11%. Machado also demonstrated his patience and power with an OPS of .950, the highest of his career. This was well above his previous career-best clip of .905 from 2018, when he tied his career high with 37 home runs. The Padres were third in the majors in runs scored last year and Machado was a big reason why, hitting second or third in the order for the majority of the year. That positive trend should continue going into 2021 as Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. are one of the most formidable batting duos in the league. Machado is a great target at the end of the second round, especially if you went with a pitcher in the first and need a hitter with first-round upside and a relatively safe floor. Machado is a career .280 hitter, so don't expect him to reach .300 yet again in 2021, but he'll be a steady and elite source of power throughout the year.
