Orioles Place 3B Manny Machado On 15-Day DL

iStockphoto(BALTIMORE) -- Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a ligament sprain in his right knee, the team announced.

Machado suffered the injury during the third inning of Monday’s 11-3 win over the New York Yankees, when he twisted his knee following a swing.

In 82 games this season, Machado is batting .278 with 12 home runs and 32 RBIs. He also has scored 38 runs and swiped two bases.

To take Machado’s spot on the roster, the Orioles recalled infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk.
