Is Manny Machado The Best Player In Baseball? (Photo)

Manny Machado Signing AutographsLance Martinez of My Detroit Sports sent along this original photo of Orioles infielder Manny Machado signing autographs, prior to a game against the Tigers, at Comerica Park in Detroit.

The South Florida native is now in his sixth full MLB season. Since entering the big leagues in 2012, Machado has been a three-time All-Star and two-time gold glove winner.

Over the course of the last three full seasons, Machado has averaged an outstanding 35 HR.

So far in the early part of the 2018 season, the 25-year-old is posting a .346 BA, with 9 HR and 27 RBI, for the abysmal 8-26 Orioles.

Since the team is basically already out of the playoff races, it seems likely that Machado will be on the trading block, as he is set to become a free agent, after the season.
