 BALTIMORE (AP) - In his first full season in the majors, Manny Machado has proven to be quite adept on the field and very comfortable being the youngest player in the Baltimore Orioles clubhouse.
The 20-year-old Machado is batting .309 with five homers and 21 RBIs. At third base, he's scooping up slow-rolling dribblers with his bare hand and throwing quickly and accurately to first base despite having less than a year of experience at the position.
Machado worked hard last winter to build upon his debut of last year, when the former No. 1 draft pick arrived in August and helped the Orioles reach the postseason for the first time since 1997.
Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones says of Machado: ``He's where he should be. You can see his poise.''
