Machado has been known for sliding dirty and had a few on-the-field incidents that drew the ire of baseball viewers, particularly during his 2018 playoff run with the Dodgers.

    Roberto Osuna became a controversial and hated player in the 2018 season when serving a 75-game suspension for a domestic assault violation. This chapter of his life was brought back to light less than a year and a half later when the assistant general manager of the Houston Astros yelled at several female reporters in the locker room that he was happy they traded for Osuna last season. His domestic assault violation is going to be a black cloud that hangs over the rest of his career.
