  • Manny Machado Not In Lineup Friday

    San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado (ankle) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Machado returned to action on Thursday as the DH after missing over a week, going 1-for-4 with a double, a run, and three strikeouts but will be sidelined yet again on Friday. The Padres are likely easing Machado back into action after his ankle sprain as there has been no indication that he aggravated the injury on Thursday. Saturday's lineup will be a good indication as to where Machado's ankle stands moving forward.

  • Manny Machado Returns As DH Against Dodgers

    San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado (ankle) has returned to the starting lineup on Thursday for the series opener against the division-rival Los Angeles Dodgers and right-hander Mitch White. Machado will serve as the designated hitter and will bat second in his first game since Father's Day on June 19. The 29-year-old superstar has hit a red-hot .328/.400/.545 with a .945 OPS, 12 home runs, 46 RBI, 48 runs scored and seven stolen bases in 285 plate appearances over 66 games, and he should absolutely be returned to all starting lineups in single-year leagues against the Dodgers. Ha-Seong Kim will continue to man third base, and he's hitting eighth in the batting order on Thursday.

  • Manny Machado Sitting Tuesday, But Getting Close

    San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado (ankle) will remain on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 29-year-old is nearly 10 days removed from suffering an ankle sprain and he hasn't played since. On Tuesday, he continued to increase his pre-game workouts. He ran the bases, took grounders and threw to first without showing any noticeable pain. According to Padres beat writer Kevin Acee, it was the first time Machado looked like he was ready to play since he sustained the injury. Based on his increased work and Acee's report, it seems as if there's a good chance we see Machado back on the field for Wednesday's series finale. Make sure to be on the lookout for Wednesday's lineup card.

  • Manny Machado Takes Batting Practice, Remains Out Saturday

    San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado (ankle) took batting practice before Saturday's game but remains out of the lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 29-year-old fantasy star is inching his way back to the starting lineup after spraining his ankle last Sunday. It seems like Machado will indeed end up avoiding the injured list, which is what the Padres were hoping for. If things go well, we could see Machado back in the starting lineup very soon, possibly even Sunday. Keep a close eye on his status in the coming days, and get him back in your lineup as soon as he returns.
