Regan's Rumblings: On Manny and Some Top Prospects
Regan's Rumblings: On Manny and Some Top Prospects

This article is part of our Regan's Rumblings series.

As I write this on Wednesday, my Twitter feed has been dominated by two news items (outside of our President):
1. Josh Hader's seven-year-old racist tweets
2. Manny Machado to the Dodgers
On the former, because there will be no suspension by MLB, there should be no fantasy impact. The Tweets were an awful and vile read, and hopefully Hader isn't the person today that he was at 17. On the latter, the deal has yet to become official, and given the Orioles' history of deals falling through once the medicals come in, I'll believe it when the teams announce the deal (Wednesday night edit: it's official).

Here are the fantasy implications:

Dodgers: Machado will be the everyday shortstop obviously, eliminating the Enrique Hernandez/Chris Taylor timeshare. Taylor moves to second base, Max Muncy to first, with Cody Bellinger in the outfield most days.

You've reached the end of our free article preview.
