Manny Machado continues to dominate the South Atlantic League after a three for four performance on Monday for the Shorebirds.
In his first five games this season, Macho has a .467 average (7-for-15) with two doubles, a triple and three RBI. The 18 year old has also proven that he is a patient hitter at the plate, drawing seven walks and earning a .636 on base percentage.
It’s still early in the season, but you’ve got to wonder how long Machado will be at the Single-A level. If he continues with this success, I would imagine it won’t be long until he’s moving up.
