Not true. While it will not prove if they can handle it next year, it can prove that they are not in any sense ready for the bigs.
The Astros had the book on Machado. Throw breaking balls and he has no chance. He never even fouled one off. He couldn't have hit them with an ironing board. I think these last 3 weeks will prove that Machado is hopelessly overmatched as a hitter.
