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.

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina had an MRI on his banged up right knee that showed no structural damage.

Molina, who missed the Cardinals' last two games, said he had been dealing with pain in his knee for the past month but it hurt even more on Friday, prompting the Cards to send the catcher for tests.

"Good news," Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny said. "It's definitely something that's worrisome when he's such a valuable part of our team. But it's best to get it looked at and know what you're dealing with."

Molina, the National League leading vote-getter for the All-Star Game, is leading the NL in hitting with a .346 average. Molina also has six home runs and 45 RBIs for the season.

ESPN: Rivera Agrees to Terms with Yankees

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --- The New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year $10 million contract, plus incentives, with closer Mariano Rivera, according to sources who spoke to ESPN.

The 43-year-old Rivera played in only nine games in 2012, and had season-ending knee surgery in June.

Rivera, baseball's all-time saves leader, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in May while shagging fly balls during batting practice in Kansas City. He had been debating if he should come back but notified the team earlier in November that he wanted to return.

Rivera has a lifetime 2.21 ERA, with 608 saves and a 1.00 WHIP during his 18-year career with the Yankees.

Lance Berkman to Have Knee Surgery

Jeff Golden/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) - St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday in Vail, Colo.

If Berkman only has a torn meniscus, he could return after the All-Star break.  If Berkman needs to have his ACL replaced, he would be out for the season.

Berkman has suffered an ACL injury before. In 2005, he blew out his right ACL playing touch football.

"All the information that I'm getting plus what I felt leads me to believe that there is an issue with the ACL," Berkman said. "I'm hoping that's not the case but I'm not sure that is the case."

Berkman, 36, is signed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals worth $12 million that he signed before the end of last season.
