Manny Machado goes through series of drills at O's minicamp
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who's recovering from knee surgery, took part in a minicamp at the team's spring training complex Wednesday and went through a series of drills, according to the Baltimore Sun. He took batting practice and did base-running drills.
For the past couple weeks, Machado has been cleared for all baseball activities fielding except fielding balls side to side. He will meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Machado's surgeon, one last time before the start of spring training in order to receive full clearance. Manager Buck Showalter said he liked what he saw from Machado, but noted that the speed of games will offer Machado another challenge.
"It's been a while since I've felt this healthy," Machado said. "My body feels great. My mind is clear, and I'm excited to get back out there. I'm itching actually. I haven't been itching like this for spring training since my first year of pro ball. I'm just excited to get everything rolling.
"I've been waiting to catch grounders. I could do it. I just haven't really decided to catch grounders. I've just been working on my hand-eye coordination and my glove work."
For the second year in a row, Machado's season was cut short by knee surgery. He hit .278/.324/.431 over 327 at-bats in 2014. It remains to be seen if he'll be limited come spring training.
Orioles' Showalter has been checking in frequently with 3B Machado

|(1/13/15) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday he has kept a dialogue this offseason with third baseman Manny Machado, who is recovering from August knee surgery. Machado will report to Florida on Wednesday to have a checkup on his right knee, per MASNsports.com.
"I get a lot of feedback on him and about him," Showalter said. "I don't sit here and go down a list. I'm going to leave him alone. I asked (third base coach) Bobby Dickerson on the phone today, and he said it's the best he's felt in a long time right now. It's good to hear.
"He's probably not real happy about having to make the trek over here. He doesn't have to make the trek. It's completely voluntary. That's what I told him on the phone."
Manny Machado to attend minicamp, Matt Wieters won't
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/4/15) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who's recovering from knee surgery, is scheduled to attend a three-day minicamp at the team's spring training complex next week, reports the Baltimore Sun.
Catcher Matt Wieters, who's recovering from June elbow surgery, is rehabbing in Atlanta and won't attend the minicamp, the report said. Wieters is still expected to be ready for Opening Day, though the team is seeking an experienced backup catcher as insurance, the paper said.
Showalter: Machado appears more likely for O's opener than Wieters
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) Orioles manager Buck Showalter conveyed third baseman Manny Machado has a better chance of being ready for the Orioles season opener than catcher Matt Wieters, according to CSNBaltimore.com.
Machado had right knee surgery in August and Wieters underwent Tommy John surgery in June.
"With both of these guys, it will be when and not if. I think if you held a gun up to my head, I think Manny makes the start of the year, and I think Matt is very close thereafter, but we won’t put either one of these guys on the field until it’s time to go, and try to keep the finish line in mind," Showalter said.
Orioles' Manny Machado, Matt Wieters progressing well
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado and catcher Matt Wieters are progressing well from their injuries, according to MLB Network Radio.
Manager Buck Showalter said he expects both players to be fully healed by next season, but added that the club will prepare as though neither player will be around. Machado had knee surgery in August. Wieters is coming off June Tommy John surgery.
|2014 summary: For the second season in a row, Manny Machado's season ended with a knee injury and subsequent surgery. Machado started the season a month late as he was recovering from a left knee injury sustained the previous fall, and it ended in mid-August when he sprained his right knee. In between the injuries, Machado traded in the doubles power he showed in 2013 for some home run thump, as he hit 14 doubles but smashed 12 homers in just over half a season. Though Machado's .278 batting average was just five points lower than the previous season's mark, his 32 RBI and 38 runs in 82 games were well below 2013's pace.
Playing time status: Machado is trying to complete his recovery in time for the beginning of spring training, but whether or not he will be ready depends on how his rehab progresses.
2015 outlook: Machado got off to a slow start in 2014, so given that he will be coming back from another knee injury, Fantasy owners should plan on another sluggish spring with the Orioles. However, he showed he could potentially hit 25 or more homers, and at age 22, Machado could still become a better hitter for average and on-base percentage. Though his injury history and stats may suggest otherwise, Machado is worth targeting in the mid-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
