Orioles Lose Manny Machado for the Season

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- The Baltimore Orioles will lose third baseman Manny Machado to a knee injury for the second straight season as he will undergo surgery on his right knee after suffering a sprain back on August 11.

This is a tough blow for the Orioles as Machado was finally starting to come around at the plate since the All-Star Break.

He missed the first month of the season after recovering from an injury to his left knee.

"I'll probably try to bring some clarity into that situation and gather what he's being told as far as when baseball activity would start and all that stuff, I'll try to clear that up for you, probably tomorrow, give you a more definitive idea," Orioles manager Buck Showalter told Comcast Sportsnet.

The 22-year-old Machado is one of baseball's brightest young stars not only at the plate, but he's also a stellar defensive player as well, as he took home the AL Gold Glove last season.

In 82 games this season, Machado hit .278 with 12 home runs and 32 RBIs.

Orioles 3B Machado has Ligament Sprain

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado had an MRI Tuesday revealing a ligament sprain in his right knee.

The 21-year-old Machado suffered the injury while taking a swing in the team's 11-3 loss against the New York Yankees Monday night. After Machado took the swing, he fell to the ground grabbing his knee and had to be helped off the field.

The Orioles still haven't determined whether Machado will go on the disabled list.

"I'm not going to handicap it," Orioles skipper Buck Showalter said. "I don't know yet, but just because someone goes on the DL doesn't mean that he's not going to play again this year, or he's going to have surgery or this and that."

This is the second time Machado suffered an injury to a knee while in the major leagues. In October 2013, Machado had reconstructive surgery on his left knee. That procedure caused the youngster to start this season on the DL.

In 82 games this season, Machado is hitting .278 with 12 home runs, 32 RBIs and a .324 on-base percentage.

(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Orioles hammered New York in an 11-3 win at home on Saturday. However, Baltimore (68-50) may have lost third baseman Manny Machado to the disabled list.

Machado exited the game in the third inning after spraining his right knee after swinging at a pitch in the fifth inning.

"There's a chance we may have dodged a bullet," said Baltimore (68-50) manager Buck Showalter.  "We'll just wait for the results." He

"Hopefully it is on the good side other than the bad," he continued.

Machado, who will be reevaluated on Tuesday, ended up leaving the game and being replaced in the lineup by Chris Davis. Davis would later go on to lift Baltimore ahead of the Yankees with a two-run home run. The flood-gates then opened for the Orioles, adding a run in the fourth, three in the seventh and four more in the eighth.

Baltimore's win put them seven games ahead of New York (61-57) in the American League East. It is the biggest gap between the two squads in the season.

Meanwhile, The Orioles (52-43) still have a four game lead over the Blue Jays and Yankees in the AL East.

Orioles' Machado Suspended 5 Games 

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was suspended five games on Tuesday for intentionally throwing his bat during Sunday's contest against the Athletics.

The 21 year old Machado is appealing the suspension and played in Baltimore's game Tuesday versus the Red Sox.

"I don't want to be down for five days," Machado said. "We're just going to go ahead and get that down, and that's it. Need to try to help out this team in anyway."

Fernando Abad threw several pitches close to Machado's face, leading to Machado launch his bat onto the field. The event caused both benches to clear. Machado and Abad were both ejected from the game. Abad received a fine but was not suspended.

Since the event occurred, Machado has apologized to his teammates for losing his temper.

Machado is hitting .227 with four home runs, 11 RBIs, and 19 runs scored this season.

Machado Returns to Orioles' Lineup

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Orioles activated third baseman Manny Machado from the 15-day disabled list and optioned infielder Stephen Lombardozzi to Triple-A Norfolk Thursday.

The 21-year-old Machado, who hadn't played in a major league game since suffering a season ending knee injury Sept. 23 of last year, played in the second game of the Orioles' doubleheader against Pittsburgh Thursday, going 0-for-5 at the plate.

"Manny wasn't going to play 18 innings (his) first day back from rehab," Orioles skipper Buck Showalter said of Machado. "I have my reasons, and talking to Manny, I don't want to see him play the first game, sit around for a long time and then be asked to come into a game, potentially the second game.

"I made sure that he knew we weren't going to play him 18 innings. I just don't think that's very smart."

The 6-foot-3 Machado won a Gold Glove and was an All-Star last season, hitting .314 with 14 home runs and 71 RBIs.

Orioles Activate Third Baseman Manny Machado from the DL

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The already potent Baltimore Orioles offense got an even bigger boost on Tuesday, as the team activated third baseman Manny Machado from the disabled list.

Machado had been on the shelf since since suffering a knee injury back on Sept. 23. After surgery and a lengthy rehab, the team feels Machado is ready to play with the big league club.

During his rehab assignment, the 21-year-old Machado went 8-for-12 in three games with the Orioles minor league affiliates.

Despite his limited time in the majors, Machado is one of the most exciting young players in Major League Baseball not just because of his bat, but for his glove as well: in 156 games last season, Machado hit .283 with 14 home runs, 71 RBIs, scored 88 runs, and hit 51 doubles.

Filling in for Machado this season had been Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop. The two combined to hit .213 with just one home run.

Orioles Manny Machado Unsure About His Opening Day Status

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(SARASOTA, Fla.) -- With Opening Day getting closer and closer, its becoming less of a certainty that Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will be ready to play once the regular season begins.

Machado had surgery on a torn ligament in his left knee back in October. He was hoping to be ready to play at the start of the season, but his knee is still sore, something that the team was not anticipating.

"I don't know if I'll make Opening Day or not," Machado said on Sunday. "It's not in the back of my mind. I'm not worried about playing games yet. I just want to get healthy. Once I get healthy I'll be ready to roll and keep playing and just get back into playing mode."

The 21-year-old Machado was set to get his knee looked at by a doctor to see if he was ready to take his rehab to the next level, but he hasn't been able to run in nearly a week. It will still be a few days until he'll be able to test himself on the base paths.

Last season, Machado emerged as one of the bright young starts in Major League Baseball. In 156 games, Machado hit .283 with 14 home runs and drove in 71 runs.

Manny Machado Opts to Have Surgery 

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) --  Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has made the decision to undergo surgery to repair a ligament in his left knee.

Dodgers orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the surgery Monday.  The recovery time is expected to be anywhere from four to six months.

"I sent my MRI results to a couple of doctors and knee specialists and we decided that in the long run and for my future as a baseball player, this surgery would be the best plan," Machado said in a statement released by the team. "I will immediately begin the rehabilitation process in hopes of being ready for the start of Spring Training."

The 21-year-old Machado tore his medial patellofemoral ligament back on Sept. 23.  Before the injury, Machado hit .283 with 14 homers, 71 RBIs and 51 doubles for the Orioles while not missing a game.
