Dixon Machado 2014 Stats
Analysis: Machado possess a unique blend of plate discipline (1.11 BB/K) and above average defence (4.29 RF/G). These two above average skills are what will get Machado to the majors, but it will be the development of his bat that will determine what role he will play in the major leagues. His offensive game turned a corner in his 90 GP at Double-A, where he earned player of the month in August.
2015 Prognosis: Detroit’s coaching staff will get a good look at Dixon during Spring Training since he’s been added to the 40-man roster. Machado batted at the bottom of the order, but if he continues to add muscle to his 6’1″ frame, he will make an ideal number two hitter.
