Machado went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Machado's two-run shot in the first inning made it 2-0 before Rays starter Matt Andriese could record a single out. The star slugger was almost kept out of the lineup due to an illness, but manager Buck Showalter's decision to dress Machado paid off big time in what ended as a two-run victory. While a slow start had the infielder slashing just .238/.306/.426 back on July 29, Machado's season line is up to .264/.318/.487 now.

Machado (illness) is in the lineup, but could be scratched following a pre-game workout as manager Buck Shower said he's only "50-50" to play Thursday against Tampa Bay, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com.

EDGE Analysis

Although Machado was initially plugged into Baltimore's lineup, it appears as though it's up in the air as to whether he will actually stay there. The third baseman missed Wednesday's game due to an illness, but is hitting second at his normal position for Thursday's contest. There will likely be an update regarding his status within the next hour.

Machado, who is out of the Wednesday's lineup against the Red Sox, is dealing with an illness, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is 3-for-29 (.103) over his last eight games, and it is unclear exactly when the illness popped up. It sounds like he is just day-to-day. Ryan Flaherty will start at the hot corner and hit ninth.

Machado went 4-for-6 and scored the game's only run in Friday's extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

It's Machado's fourth multi-hit performance in his last five games as he continues to erase a disappointing first half from everyone's memory. The 25-year-old now has a .273 batting average -- the highest it's been since April 8 -- and his 30 homers and 88 RBI are right in line with preseason expectations.

EDGE Analysis

Machado has caught fire of late and now has 10 homers, 29 RBI and 16 runs through his past 19 games. His .264/.318/.496 slash line is slowly creeping closer to the marks fantasy owners have come to expect from him, too. With his struggles in the rearview mirror, Machado projects to remain an elite asset moving forward.
