Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will make his first career Opening Day start today against the Rays. Machado, 20, joins Brooks Robinson (19 in 1957, 20 in 1958), Ron Hansen (20 in 1958) and Boog Powell (20 in 1962) in the 20-or-under club of Orioles players to start an Opening Day. The last 20-or-younger Orioles player to play in an Opening Day game was Wally Bunker on April 13, 1965.
