Video: Manny Machado's slick fielding in MLB Futures Game

July 11, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Orioles infield prospects Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop played in the MLB Futures Game on Sunday night. Schoop, a second baseman, had a single in his only at-bat as the United States team beat the World, 6-4. Machado, one of the top prospects in baseball, went 0-for-2, but he made a fine defensive play at shortstop.

Unfortunately, I can't embed the video because Major League Baseball won't allow me, but you can check out his sweet scoop and throw here. While you're at it, here is video of him taking batting pratice beforehand.

The more Machado, the better, right? Especially during this seven-game Orioles losing streak.
