Machado went 3-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored, a double, a walk and a strikeout in Wednesday's extra-innings win over the Giants. Machado delivered an insurance run with his seventh-inning double, which proved to be big when San Francisco staged a late comeback to send this one to extras. The 26-year-old's .774 OPS with the Dodgers is considerably lower than the .962 mark he was posting with Baltimore, but he's otherwise been adjusting nicely to the National League. He also should continue seeing plenty more run-scoring and run-producing opportunities than he was seeing while playing for the rebuilding Orioles.
Machado is not in the lineup against Colorado on Friday, Andy McCullough of The Los Angeles Times reports. Machado will get a day off for the first time since coming over to Los Angeles. Since becoming a Dodger, he's slashed .280/.366/.427 with two home runs, five RBI and 25 strikeouts in 20 games. In his place, Chris Taylor will start at shortstop and bat sixth.
Machado went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs to help the Dodgers to a 3-2 win over the Astros on Sunday. The new acquisition accounted for most of his team's offense in this contest, scoring two out of the Dodgers' three runs and lashing his 23rd double of the season. The 26-year-old star is posting eye-popping numbers over his split time between Baltimore and Los Angeles this season, with a .309/.386/.552 slash line and 26 homers through 433 at-bats. His counting stats contributions only figure to increase as he continues to settle into his new role in a Dodgers lineup that is much better than Baltimore's.
Machado went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and a solo home run in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Brewers. Machado's second homer as a Dodger was the lone bright spot in an otherwise forgettable game for the club. The 26-year-old hasn't skipped a beat since moving west over the All-Star break, slashing .304/.418/.500 with two homers in 11 games following the blockbuster trade.
Machado went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk in the 8-2 win over Atlanta on Thursday. Machado went yard for the first time in his seventh game as a Dodger. The 26-year-old infielder is up to 25 home runs, 67 RBI and a .951 OPS in 449 total plate appearances this season.
