2010 MLB Draft, Day One, Pick 3: Manny Machado (SS, Orioles)

Manny Machado, SS, Brito Miami Private School (FL)

Machado has so many tools that Harold Reynolds said he would've taken him first overall. He gets the standard comparisons to Alex Rodriguez, and though that obviously sets quite the high bar, he has a very good swing that portends future power development. Machado is tall, which is a concern that he could outgrow short. However, that's no guarantee, and he has good hands and promising (albeit limited) agility. The Orioles should just plug him into the Majors tomorrow.
