I know all the talk right now is all about Bryce Harper and Mike Trout and rightfully so. However, the young 20 year old Manny Machado has quietly been putting up numbers since being called up to the majors last August.
He’s had a career BA of 301. early on in his young MLB career, and in his first full year in the majors, he’s hitting a remarkable 335. That ranks him 7th in the MLB and puts him in the lead for doubles in the league. He also ranks #2 in hits behind Miguel Cabrera. Also, when you look at the numbers of Harper (career BA 274.), Trout (career BA 305.), and Machado, he should be in the same conversation as Trout and Harper as the future of the MLB.
I think it’s safe to say we will see all three of these young stars at Citi Field for this year’s All Star game on July 16th.
