EDGE Analysis

Machado took John Brebbia deep in the seventh inning to record his 34th home run of the season. He had turned in a productive effort before the home run, driving in runs on a double and sacrifice fly. While his production has met preseason expectations, the long ball was Machado's first since Aug. 30 and he has managed just five RBI in that span.

Machado went 2-for-4 with a sacrifice fly and four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Machado was trouble for Rangers pitching throughout the game. He opened the scoring with a two-RBI single in the third inning, added a sacrifice fly in the fourth and stretched the lead to five with another RBI single in the sixth. Machado has hit a solid .272/.349/.469 with seven homers and five steals since joining the Dodgers. His 119 wRC+ with his new team is down from the 154 wRC+ he posted in the first part of the season in Baltimore but is right in line with his career figure (120).

Machado (wrist) will start at shortstop and bat third against St. Louis on Monday.

Machado will not miss any additional time after getting struck on the wrist in the ninth inning of Sunday's victory.

Contrary to an earlier report, the results of Machado's (wrist) X-rays are not yet known, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the test results remain unknown, Machado said he wasn't hit directly on the bone and still expects to play against the Cardinals on Monday, though that will likely depend on how he feels come leading up to the series opener. Chris Taylor would seemingly cover shortstop if Machado is forced to miss any time.
