What to watch for in Machado's return to Camden Yards?
Good or bad reception for Machado?
There's always speculation around the reception a big-name player will receive in their first at-bat back at a familiar ballpark. Fellow former DMV star Bryce Harper was showered with 'boos' in his return to Nationals Park, but NBC Sports Washington's Ryan Wormeli writes that Machado's recpetion should be different.
Adley Rutschman appearance?
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft finally signed with the O's yesterday and he's already rumored to make an appearance during Tuesday night's game. The Oregon State catcher received a $8.1 million signing bonus, the highest rookie signing bonus in league history. Rutschman fielded questions and took batting practice with the team earlier today, so he will be in the building.
Another Jr. playing SS in Camden Yards?
Nowadays, that means Padres shortstop Fernando Tatís Jr, son of former Oriole Fernando Tatís. The 20 year-old rookie shortstop is hitting .323 with 8 HRs and 23 RBIs despite missing a month due to a hamstring injury.
