Seems like a no at this point

do the Orioles trade Hardy at some point and use Machado at SS? or does Hardy remain at SS and Machado plays 3B for the near future at least?
Hardy will be 30 this season, so it's not like he's old.

He does have a nice K/BB ratio but the power/speed combo seems less exciting than I'm being led to believe. I'm going to add him anyway, but perhaps someone could fill me in on the justifications for all the hype?

It seemed like most nights I looked at Bowie’s box, Machado’s line was 0-fer. But then I’d read something from the O’s about how his current production was of no concern, that he was tweaking his approach, that scouts are still encouraged. Still, it’s hard not to be a little worried when the guy I ranked No. 2 on this list is slugging just .375 at the end of May. Well, it appears now that whatever tweaks Machado had been working on are beginning to take hold. Since the calendar rolled over into June, Machado has been a different guy at the plate, peaking especially during his last ten: .444/.500/.806, 3 HR, 16 RBI. He’ll be a fun guy to keep an eye on the rest of the way.
