Machado progressing at third base with Orioles
ARLINGTON -- Rookie Manny Machado, who played shortstop in the Minor Leagues, made his 12th start at third base Tuesday night since being called up.

He said Tuesday he's still getting acquainted with the position and called it a work in progress.

"I can't complain," Machado said. "It's been an adjustment. It's different footwork. It's all about reaction."

Manager Buck Showalter said Monday that he wants the 20-year-old Machado to get every experience possible in his first season in the Major Leagues. The bonus is Machado getting to play on a playoff contender.

"This is great, playing on a young team and winning games," Machado said.
