Oriole's Manny Machado unsure when he'll be ready to return to the field

By Laura Hundemer,

Baltimore Orioles’ third baseman, Manny Machado, is still recovering from knee surgery and is unsure when he will be ready to play. He has not run in five days due to surgery on his left knee which causes discomfort. Machado announced on March 16 that because of the recovering process, he might not be ready to play on opening day.

However Machado, 21, knows that baseball season is long and is not worried about missing a few games at the start of the season. According to espn Machado said, “…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."

According to CBS Sports Machado was scheduled to have a re-evaluation appointment this upcoming Tuesday, but will miss it due to soreness and scar tissue.

The Orioles have made it clear that they do not want Machado to rush back, and that he will start when he is confident that he is rested and recovered. Last season Machado won both the Gold Glove Award and the AL Platinum Glove Award for the best defensive player.
