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.

Tim Wittman said yesterday that if there is ligament damage in his sore left knee, his 10-year career with the Baltimore Blast would be over."If it's ligaments, I'll call it quits," said Wittman who already has come back three times from knee surgery. "That would put me out for a year, and I'm not going to wait around that long to finish my career. I'll be done for good."Wittman, one of the hottest point producers in the Major Soccer League in the past 20 games (21 goals, 20 assists), has said he plans to play this season and one more and then retire, possibly to an MSL coaching position.

In recent weeks, the Orioles have built the largest division lead in baseball as they chase their first American League East title in 17 years, but the club now faces the possibility of being without All-Star third baseman Manny Machado for an extended amount of time. An MRI performed Tuesday revealed no apparent structural damage, and the club said Machado was diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain. In some ways, that was good news - especially given how Machado's season ended last year with a left knee injury that required offseason surgery - but it appears that this injury could force Machado to the 15-day disabled list.

A magnetic resonance imaging test performed on the right knee of Archbishop Spalding's Rachel Synowski has revealed nothing more serious than strained ligaments, and the senior pitcher expects to return next week.Synowski, an All-Metro selection last year, injured the knee while warming up before Friday's game against the Institute of Notre Dame. At first, doctors believed that she had a torn meniscus, and that surgery might be necessary."After hearing the loud pop and the way it hurt, I thought it was a lot more serious than this," said Synowski, whose spikes caught in the dirt as she was releasing a pitch.

Ravens wide receiver Marcus Smith is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, his agent confirmed Friday. Smith, who was vying for one of the top four wide receiver spots, injured his knee in the second quarter of Thursday's 23-0 win over the Washington Redskins. There is no timetable for Smith's surgery, but it could be performed in the next week if the swelling goes down.

Harrison, a 6-foot All-Metro forward-guard who has signed with Maryland, said Saturday night that nothing was broken and no ligaments were torn when she got tangled up with an opposing player while battling for a rebound. With her knee bent in an awkward position, Harrison had feared she might join a growing list of elite Baltimore-area girls basketball players sidelined this winter with knee injuries.

The Orioles will be without left-hander Randy Wolf for the remainder of the season. Wolf was placed on the 60-day disabled with a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow before Wednesday's game. The 36-year-old Wolf will likely need a second Tommy John surgery to pitch again. The prognosis on Wolf, who was signed Aug. 31 to add left-handed bullpen depth, didn't appear to be promising Tuesday when manager Buck Showalter wouldn't discuss the results of an MRI performed that morning, only saying that Wolf would speak with team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens and Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on Wolf's elbow in 2005.  “We'll see what Randy and the doctors want to do,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

Anyone who watched John Greeley crumple to the turf after intercepting a pass untouched in the second quarter of Johns Hopkins' 8-2 loss to Navy on April 21 grimaced and knew that the junior midfielder would miss an extended period of time.
