Numerous popular candidates will be eligible this year with the committee, which formed in July 2016 and considers players, managers, executives and umpires who made their greatest contribution to the game between 1970 and 1987.
Eligible candidates are almost too numerous to list here but include: Alan Trammell, Lou Whitaker, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Luis Tiant, Thuman Munson, Ted Simmons, Steve Garvey, Rick Reuschel, Bobby Grich, Dwight Evans and Dave Parker. With committee members in the past restricted to voting for no more than four candidates, there should be plenty of candidates to split the vote and ensure no one receives the necessary 75 percent of the vote when the committee meets this fall.
That said, Morris will likely at least come close (and inspire another round of tiresome arguments in the next few months).
Beginning five years after retiring, players have 10 years of eligibility to be voted into the Hall of Fame. To be chosen for the Hall of Fame, a player must be on at least 75 percent of ballots.
For a player to be eligible for selection to the Hall of Fame, they must have played in the major league for a minimum of 10 years and had been retired for at least five years. In Rodriguez’s case, this is his first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame after he retired in 2012.
But offensive prowess is only half the conversation with Machado. While he came up as a shortstop through Baltimore’s system, he’s found a home at third base, winning two Gold Glove awards in five seasons, and the Platinum Glove award in 2013, as the AL’s best overall defender.

Knee injuries derailed some parts of the early seasons of Machado’s career. But he’s still just 24, so if the talent he’s shown in the box and the field to this point are any indication of what he’s capable of for the next 15 years, watch out.
