Even though his major league career is just four games old -- and he began this past week playing at Double-A Bowie -- Orioles rookie third baseman Manny Machado has been named American League co-Player of the Week.
Machado will share the honor with Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
Called up before Thursday's game against the Royals, the 20-year-old Machado went 6-for-16 with three homers, one triple, one double, five runs and seven RBIs over four games.
On Friday, he became the 12th player in major league history to record a two-homer game before his 21st birthday. He also became the youngest player (20 years, 35 days) in franchise history to homer twice in a game, breaking Boog Powell's mark set in 1962.
