Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, has cemented himself as one of the best young players in baseball this season. Not only is he a major threat with the bat in his hands, but he also displays Gold Glove caliber defense.
The New York Yankees, found out today just how good Machado is with the glove when he robbed fellow third baseman Luis Cruz, with a spectacular play during their game against the Orioles today.
Cruz hit a groundball down the third base foul line, that Machado fumbled towards the dugout but somehow managed to gather himself and make a strong throw to get the runner out by a hair. The Orioles won 2-1 by the way.
