With so much buzz about Dylan Bundy, I can't even find a thread about Machado. I've heard that he's doing well this year, but that's about it. Anyone know what's going on with him? He is our #2 prospect and a guy that is supposed to be a super star, right?!! Can anyone provide some insight? Has anyone gone to see him play?

He's at Bowie. Been scuffling a little bit, but nothing too alarming for such a young player in that league. I suspect he'll spend the whole season there and hopefully be ready for Norfolk next year.
Here's a link to his stats if you're interested...

I didn't notice before clicking on that link, but despite the low B.A., Machado still has a +.100 delta between his OBP and BA. Very nice. K's are a little high, but not alarming given age and new league.

Machado has a .742 OPS at age 19 in AA in 86 at bats. I looked up another 19 year old AA infielder, who had a
.587 OPS in 61 at bats. The other guy's name is Cal Ripken, Jr.
