Manny Machado Biography
Manny Machado was born July 6, 1992 and is a shortstop and third baseman with the Baltimore Orioles of Major League Baseball. He attended Brito High School in Miami. Machado was drafted by the Orioles with the third overall pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. He bats and throws right-handed.
Machado was viewed as the second best high school position player in the 2010 MLB Draft. Machado was selected 3rd overall in the 2010 MLB Draft by the Baltimore Orioles and signed a 5.25 million dollar contract with the Orioles with just three minutes left before the midnight EST signing deadline for 2010 draft picks. Machado was introduced by the Orioles in mid-September when the Orioles hosted the New York Yankees.
On August 22, Machado reported to the Orioles minor league complex to join the Gulf Coast League Orioles. Machado made his professional debut with the Gulf Coast League Orioles on August 27, 2010, where he went 0-3 with a strikeout. He played as the designated hitter. Machado hit his first professional home run in his second game with the Orioles. Machado made his debut with the Low-A Aberdeen IronBirds of the New York Penn League on August 30, 2010 where he went 1-3 with a single. He played short stop, instead of being the DH, as he did with the Orioles, and he was pulled after the fifth inning. Machado began the 2011 season with the Delmarva Shorebirds, playing shortstop. He hit five home runs before May first, and was named the SAL player of the week for April 25-May 1. After missing several weeks with a knee injury, he returned to play 10 more games and appear in the SAL all-star game on June 21, 2011. After the game, he was promoted to the High-A Frederick Keys. He was named to appear in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game.
The Orioles promoted Machado to the major leagues from the AA Bowie Baysox on August 9, 2012, against the Kansas City Royals. The following day, against the same opponent, he hit his first and second home runs, making him the youngest Oriole and 12th youngest player in major league history to have a multihomer game. The same fan Adam Corder was fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of Machado's two home runs. The two home runs were both off of former number-one overall draft choice Luke Hochevar. He then hit his 3rd career Home Run on Sunday August 12, 2012 off of Bruce Chen. This was a two run HR.
