Orioles Rule 5 pick Michael Almanzar is scheduled for a MRI of his left knee Monday afternoon, according to manager Buck Showalter . Showalter said the 23-year-old corner infielder injured his knee while playing first base Saturday in Port Charlotte, Fla., and there has continued to be swelling. The Orioles need to keep Almanzar on the major league roster all season or offer him back to the Boston Red Sox for half of the original $50,000 purchase price. If he started the season on the 15-day disabled list it would buy the Orioles some time and roster flexibility.

CHICAGO - Once an MRI revealed a partially torn ligament in his right knee, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado knew it was possible that his season was over. But with the Orioles on the verge of their first American League East title in 17 years, Machado hoped rest and treatment would resolve the injury quickly enough to allow him to be a part of a possible postseason run. Nearly two weeks after his right knee buckled after following through on a swing, however, Machado has decided to have season-ending surgery for the second straight season.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco played through pain during the final two games after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee against the Detroit Lions in Week 15. Flacco said, however, that he won't need to undergo offseason surgery to repair the damage to his knee. "No, I'm not going to have to get anything done," Flacco said following the Ravens' season-ending 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. "It was just my MCL, and it will heal on its own. " Flacco appeared to be in pain after being hit in the end zone, grabbing his knee and wincing afterward.

Even to the most die-hard Orioles fan -- even the ones most blinded by the darkest orange-and-black colored shades -- Manny Machado's bat fling on Sunday afternoon had to seem a little weird. Machado said after the Orioles' 11-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics that his bat left his grasp and twirled down the third-base line in play unintentionally . But when you look at the play, Machado swung the bat nowhere close to the pitch low and inside. His swing also was extremely late.

Infielder Alexi Casilla, who has been limited this spring to a right hamstring strain, was scratched from Friday's lineup with a hyper-extended left knee. The Orioles weren't immediately sure of the extent of the injury. Casilla, a non-roster invitee who is battling to regain his utility infield spot, has played in just three games and is hitless in five at-bats. Jonathan Schoop replaced Casilla at shortstop and will bat seventh. Quintin Berry and Michael Almanzar dropped to eighth and ninth in the lineup, respectively.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's next checkup on his left knee will be Friday afternoon in Los Angeles, and the hope is that he will be cleared to resume some baseball activities. Regardless, the 21-year-old All-Star is expected to fly back from Los Angeles to Baltimore on Friday and be at the Orioles' annual FanFest celebration at the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday, according to a club source. Initially, the appointment and FanFest conflicted. Machado will see Los Angeles Dodgers team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the October surgery on Machado's left knee to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament.

As quarterback Joe Flacco, barefoot and braceless, leaned on the lectern after Sunday's 41-7 loss to the New England Patriots, he made a point not to use his left knee, sore and swollen in recent days, as an excuse for an uneven performance. Flacco sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee in Monday's win over the Detroit Lions, and after practicing on a limited basis all week, he started against the Patriots, wearing a bulky protective knee brace. Flacco finished 22-for-38 for 260 yards and two interceptions.
