I dont know. Machado's first 1200 PA's spread over 3 seasons he had only a .747 OPS. An argument could be made he was rushed. His GG defense at 3B made up for it though.  

We saw less offense in those years.  Without looking it up, I would bet a 747 OPs was close to or better than league average for both his position and overall.

He wasn’t rushed..at all.

You don't have much looking up to do to see he had a 98/102/110 OPS+ for those three years.  So even as a 19 year old he was basically a league average hitter.

To me, whether a player is rushed relates to whether his development is hindered by being thrown into the deep end of the pool.    I certainly don’t think that was the case with Manny.
