Scouting Manny Machado's Defense

Scouting Manny Machado's Defense

Manny Machado just turned 20 on July 6th. After a slow start to the season in AA Bowie, he has began to show many signs of progression and it truly makes one feel good. Not many players his age are doing it on the level he is.

Everyone is excited about the bat. They see the potential "all-star" talent that it offers. Baseball America ranked Machado 9th on their Mid-season top 50 prospect list, largely due to his bat.

While his bat is well documented, the defensive aspect of his game is often swept under the rug. The defensive opinions waver in such a distinct manner that it is often frustrating. So how good exactly is Machado defensively?

Thanks! I think it was more last season that people seemed concerned but this season it seems more and more people are convinced he can stick.

I have heard from Keith Law and now you that he should stay at short so I am convinced!

Nice work.
