Updates on Manny Machado, Dylan Bundy and Johan Santana

April 04, 2014|By Dan Connolly | The Baltimore Sun

DETROIT — After Friday’s game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter presented the media with some updates from the minor league complex in Sarasota, Fla.

** Third baseman Manny Machado (knee) had a "functional" day Thursday in which he did pretty much all baseball activities: Hit, field, run a little.

He felt good during it, Showalter said. Perhaps more important, he felt good Friday.

Returning the next day after a tough workout without pain is obviously a good sign. There is no timetable for Machado’s return, but he likely won’t return until late April, at the earliest.

** Right-hander Dylan Bundy, who is continuing to recover from June elbow surgery, threw 30 pitches from a full mound Friday. He’ll keep doing the progression with hopes of returning roughly a year or so after surgery, or sometime this June, maybe July.

** Left-hander Johan Santana threw 35 pitches from a full mound. He is scheduled for a “situational side session” on Monday, which means, in part, a hitter could stand in the batter’s box while he pitches.
