Tigers' Dixon Machado: Occupies utility role to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Machado has two hits in 13 at-bats to begin the 2017 season.

Machado serves as Detroit's utility infielder, but he hasn't seen too much action at the plate thus far. With Jose Iglesias (concussion) on the DL, the 25-year-old has started seeing more time at shortstop when Andrew Romine is either on the bench or playing second base.

Tigers' Dixon Machado: Likely to make 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Tigers releasing Steven Moya on Wednesday, Machado is likely to secure a bench spot to begin the season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Machado's greatest asset is his defensive versatility, as he can play multiple infield positions. That doesn't do a lot for fantasy owners, and Machado probably won't play often enough to be much of a factor in any case.

Tigers' Dixon Machado: Hitting well this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Machado is 7-for-19 (.316) with three runs and two RBI in 11 spring training games so far.

The 25-year-old is making his case for the team's final bench spot at the plate. Machado is already known as a versatile and reliable defender, so if he can hit decently, he should have a leg up on Steven Moya for the role. Both players are out of options, meaning they'll have to pass through waivers if they get sent down.

Tigers' Dixon Machado: Plays third base Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Machado started at third base in Sunday's spring training game, his first time appearing at the position since 2015, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Machado is primarily a shortstop who also played a little second base last season. Machado, who is out of options, is battling for a bench spot this spring. "Versatility will help, for sure," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Versatility always helps when it comes to guys that could potentially be coming off the bench." Machado could be a useful defensive option for the Tigers, but he probably won't play often enough to offer much from a fantasy perspective.

Tigers' Dixon Machado: Looking for shot out of spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Machado is hoping to earn a spot on the Tigers' 25-man roster during spring training, otherwise he will likely be lost to waivers, Anthony French of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Machado is out of minor league options, meaning he will be exposed to waivers if he doesn't make the 25-man roster. The team considers his glove MLB-ready, but Machado doesn't offer much with the bat. The 24-year-old could end up as a reserve infielder this year in Detroit, which doesn't translate to a ton of fantasy value.
