2024 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Vimael Machin in 2024. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year, minor-league contract with the Phillies in January of 2023.
Sent to minors camp
3BPhiladelphia Phillies  AAA
March 23, 2023
The Phillies reassigned Machin to minor-league camp Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Machin logged 253 plate appearances at the big-league level with an 102-loss Oakland squad in 2022, but he'll have a tougher time earning reps in the majors with a Phillies team that fancies itself as World Series contenders. After inking a minor-league deal with Philadelphia in January, the 29-year-old is likely viewed as little more than organizational infield depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2021
2020
Machin had a .587 OPS in 73 games for the A's last season, but he was designated for assignment after the trade which sent catcher Sean Murphy to Atlanta. Machin should still receive an invite to big-league camp, but he's likely a longshot for the Opening Day roster. He played at shortstop, second base and third base in 2022 but provided below-average defense, which limits his value as a utility option.
Acquired in the 2019 Rule 5 Draft, Machin made his MLB debut with the Athletics in 2020 as a 26-year-old. He fit the classic Oakland mold, defensively capable of playing across the entire infield. As a prospect, Machin showed the ability to make consistent contact but paired that with a lack of power. That profile translated to the major-league level, as Machin posted a 14.1 K% and 11.3 BB% across 71 plate appearances in 2020. His power was nonexistent however, as he recorded a .238 slugging percentage and .032 ISO without registering a single barreled ball. Machin also doesn't possess speed on the base paths, having never posted double-digit steals in a season and posting a 26th percentile sprint speed in 2020. Machin should have the chance to compete for playing time this season assuming the absence of Marcus Semien. However, his most likely role will be a Quad-A utility player.
The Phillies made Machin the 15th pick of the Rule 5 draft, taking him from the Cubs then promptly selling him to the Athletics. Machin spent most the 2019 campaign with Double-A Tennessee before a short stint with Triple-A Iowa to end the season. Oakland is drawn to his ability to play all four infield spots as well as the plate patience that used to characterize the organization, walking 69 times to just 62 strikeouts combined last season. Machin doesn't dazzle in power or speed, but if he can translate his plate skills to the majors, his defensive versatility increases his chances of staying on the Oakland roster and not be offered back to the Cubs. If he has an impressive spring, the 26-year-old left-handed swinger could even be in the mix for regular playing time at second base. If it's clear Machin will spend time at the keystone, he's an end-game candidate in AL-only formats.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Getting competition at third?
3BOakland Athletics  AAA
September 13, 2020
Machin, who's set to log regular playing time at third base for the balance of the regular season with Matt Chapman (hip) on the injured list, is likely to get some competition at the position in the form of Jake Lamb, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Lamb has to fully clear waivers and become a free agent before the Athletics can sign him, a process that should come to fruition Monday, according to reports. The versatile Machin has seen time at shortstop, second base, first base and designated hitter in addition to the hot corner, but he's logged the most appearances at third and has been increasingly productive at the plate. Of note is the fact both Machin and Lamb are left-handed hitters, so it remains to be seen how manager Bob Melvin will split up the workload at the position.
