Player Outlook
Manny Machado collected 30 homers and 91 RBI to go along with a .781 OPS -- his lowest since 2017 -- in 138 games last season. He played through an elbow injury for much of the campaign and made 33 appearances as a designated hitter before undergoing surgery to repair a tendon immediately after the regular season. The procedure carries a 4-to-6 month recovery timeline, which clouds his availability for the start of the 2024 campaign. He provided strong defense in his 105 games at the hot corner and still delivered plenty of power despite the injury with a second straight 30-homer season. Machado isn't likely to be at full strength for the start of spring training, but it's possible he's ready to go by Opening Day. He could also be limited to serving as the designated hitter early on to help ease him back into things at third base, but his true availability won't be known until he gets further into his recovery and rehab work. Even if he does end up missing some time in April, Machado is likely to be a strong fantasy producer in 2024.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Goes yard again Sunday

    Machado went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Dodgers. Machado opened up the scoring with a deep drive to center field in the fourth off James Paxton and later singled and scored in the sixth. Sunday was the first time since April 6 he did not strike out, and he's now riding an eight-game hit streak while slashing .333/.371/.545 with two homers, three RBI and seven runs scored over that span.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Belts homer Friday

    Machado went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk Friday in an 8-7 extra-innings victory against the Dodgers. Machado got the Padres off to a nice start with a two-run blast in the first inning. Though he didn't collect another hit in the contest, it was still a promising development for the third baseman since the homer snapped an 11-game stretch without a long ball. Machado is still batting just .238 on the campaign, but he's been heating up of late, slashing .320/.346/.480 during his current six-game hitting streak.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Elbow still not feeling 100 percent

    Machado said Sunday that his surgically repaired right elbow is "not 100 percent" and he's been told by doctors he might not feel fully healthy until next season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Machado experienced some fatigue in the elbow during spring training, which has delayed his return to third base. While Padres manager Mike Shildt indicated Saturday that Machado could play the hot corner before the end of April, Machado said Sunday that "there's not really a timetable on it." The elbow doesn't affect Machado at the plate, as he's started all 12 games at designated hitter (though he's hitting only .196/.288/.370 so far). San Diego has used a combination of Tyler Wade, Graham Pauley and Eguy Rosario at third base.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Remains weeks away from playing 3B

    Manager Mike Shildt said Friday that Machado has been extending distance when playing catch and is "a little ahead of schedule" in terms of rehabbing from offseason elbow surgery, though the Padres won't consider having him return to the field for a few more weeks, 97.3 The Fan San Diego reports. Machado has been limited exclusively to designated-hitter duties to begin the campaign, and that appears unlikely to change for at least a few more weeks. Nonetheless, Shildt indicated that the veteran third baseman is "in a good place" and has been feeling good after recent throwing sessions. It's uncertain if Machado's offseason surgery has affected his swing, but he's off to a slow start at the plate, slashing .184/.295/.395 with two home runs, seven RBI and a 6:7 BB:K through 44 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Mashes homer in loss

    Machado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Friday in an 8-3 loss to San Francisco. Machado put the Padres on the board in the fourth inning with his 398-foot shot to left field. It was his second homer of the campaign, but he doesn't have any other hits among his 14 at-bats. Machado has logged all four of his starts this season at DH as he continues to recover from offseason elbow surgery.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Swats clutch homer in Seoul

    Machado went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, an additional run and two walks in Thursday's 15-11 win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the Seoul Series. San Diego built a big 9-2 lead by the middle of the third inning only to see Los Angeles fight back over the following frames. The Padres' lead was 12-11 in the top of the ninth when Machado tagged J.P. Feyereisen with a three-run blast to left field, sealing the outcome for his team. The homer was Machado's lone hit in seven at-bats during the two-game, season-opening set, but he did draw three walks. He served as San Diego's DH in both contests as he continues to work his way back from offseason elbow surgery, though the procedure doesn't seem to have impacted his ability to swing the bat.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Will DH in South Korea series

    Padres manager Mike Shildt said Saturday that it's a "pretty safe" bet that Machado (elbow) will be the team's designated hitter during its March 20-21 series in South Korea against the Dodgers, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Machado has yet to play third base in a spring training game and recently took a little break from throwing due to some soreness with his surgically repaired right elbow. He will resume throwing Sunday and go through drills at the hot corner, but it's unclear as to when he'll be allowed to play third base in a game. Matthew Batten, Graham Pauley or Eguy Rosario are options to handle third in South Korea, and it's possible they'll be needed for the Padres' domestic opener March 28, as well, if Machado isn't ready to play the field yet.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: To resume throwing Sunday

    Machado will restart his throwing program Sunday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Machado had been on a break from throwing as he continues to recover from an offseason elbow surgery. There is still no timeline in place for Machado to return to third base, but it will almost certainly come after San Diego's first series of the year against the Dodgers. In the meantime, he has done well as the Padres' DH this spring, going 4-for-12 with an RBI across seven games.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Set for spring debut

    Machado (elbow) is starting as San Diego's designated hitter for Saturday's Cactus League matchup against the Brewers. Machado sat out the Padres' first few spring training games as he continued to work his way back from offseason elbow surgery, but it now seems he's ready to at least serve in a DH role. It remains unclear whether or not Machado will be able to cover third base by the time the Padres open the season against the Dodgers on March 20.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Will DH in spring games soon

    Padres manager Mike Shildt said Wednesday that Machado (elbow) will be ready to serve as a designated hitter in Cactus League games "sooner rather than later," AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Machado won't be in the lineup for the Padres' spring opener Thursday, but Shildt noted that the slugger is "trending in a really good place" as he works his way back from surgery to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow. San Diego has an early start to its season with two games against the Dodgers on March 20 and 21 in South Korea, but Machado is tracking toward being ready for that series, even if he's deployed as a DH initially.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: On track entering spring training

    Machado (elbow) is swinging with 100 percent effort and playing catch to start spring training, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Machado is recovering from surgery to repair an extensor tendon injury in his elbow, leaving his status for Opening Day in question. For now, the news is positive, with general manager A.J. Preller saying that Machado has hit all expected benchmarks at this point, while also stating that he is "tracking toward" playing in the Padres' series against the Dodgers in Korea to kick off the regular season. Despite the positivity, there's still nothing definitive about Machado's status, as he is limited in the volume of his work and will be eased back into game action.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Could be limited to DH initially

    Machado (elbow) might not be ready to play defense Opening Day, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Machado underwent surgery in early October to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow. It's an injury he dealt with for much of the 2023 campaign and one which kept him from playing the field in September. The designated hitter duty for Machado could potentially carry over into 2024, with Ha-Seong Kim sliding over to third base.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Undergoes elbow surgery

    Machado underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow, Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press reports. Machado's estimated recovery timeline is between 4-to-6 months. While that likely means he will be sidelined for the vast majority of spring training, there is a chance he'll be ready to go for Opening Day in 2024.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Sitting again Sunday

    Machado is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox. Machado will sit for the second straight game to close out the season for San Diego. If the 31-year-old doesn't make an appearance off the bench, he'll close the 2023 campaign with a .258/.319/.462 slash line, 30 homers, 91 RBI and 75 runs in 138 contests.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Idle Saturday

    Machado isn't in the Padres' lineup Saturday against the White Sox. Despite going 11-for-22 with two homers and seven RBI over his last five games, Machado will sit down for the penultimate game of the season Saturday. Matthew Batten will start at third base, and Juan Soto will operate as the DH while Jurickson Profar starts in left field.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Provides insurance in 10th inning

    Machado went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Giants. Machado's third hit of the game was a two-run single in the 10th inning to give the Padres some breathing room. He's gone 10-for-17 with seven RBI over his last four games, but he's also rested regularly while nursing an elbow injury in September. Machado has a .258/.320/.465 slash line with 30 home runs, 91 RBI, 75 runs scored and three stolen bases over 137 contests this year.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Not starting Sunday

    Machado is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. Machado has missed a few games lately and has largely been limited to serving as the designated hitter in September due to an elbow injury, and he'll take a seat after the Padres' eight-game win streak was snapped Saturday. Xander Bogaerts will rest his legs as San Diego's designated hitter while Ha-Seong Kim works as shortstop.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Powers offense Friday

    Machado went 4-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 4-2 win over the Cardinals. Machado twice put the Padres ahead, launching a solo shot in the sixth inning and a two-run blast in the eighth. The third baseman now has five long balls over 15 games in September, giving him 30 homers for the second consecutive season. It's also the seventh time he's reached that mark in his career. He's added a .253/.316/.465 slash line, 87 RBI, 75 runs scored and three stolen bases through 134 contests. Machado continues to be locked in at designated hitter due to an elbow injury that is likely to need offseason surgery, but he'll probably remain in the Padres' lineup at least until they're mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Returns to lineup

    Machado (elbow) is in the designated hitter spot and batting fourth versus the Rockies on Wednesday in his return to action, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Machado has been out of the lineup a few times this month and has been limited to DH duty when he does play because of a nagging elbow issue which will likely require surgery eventually. He'll gut it out for this one, though.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Out of lineup Tuesday

    Machado (elbow) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies. Machado served as the Padres' designated hitter in Monday's series opener versus Colorado, but he has an elbow injury that will eventually require surgery and could be facing an early shutdown. Juan Soto will take a turn in the DH role Tuesday as Eguy Rosario covers third base.
