Third baseman Manny Machado is in today's lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles have heard nothing from the commissioner's office regarding his suspension appeal, so they are continuing with business as normal. Does it seem like the appeal process - from the scheduling of the hearing and now the rendering of a decision - is taking longer than usual? Yeah, probably. But I wouldn't read anything into it. When all is over, my guess is Machado's five-game suspension gets reduced to either four or three.

Injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the Orioles' clubhouse Wednesday and promised to return in late October if his teammates make it to World Series. "I'll be back, for sure," said the 21-year-old Machado, who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing since he had surgery on Aug. 27 to repair a partially torn ligament in his right knee. He arrived in Baltimore on Monday and said he will stay for the two games at Camden Yards before leaving Saturday for the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - With his offense failing to score more than three runs in four of the previous five games, Orioles manager Buck Showalter shuffled his lineup rather drastically on Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays and their ace, lefty David Price. Showalter flooded his lineup with right-handed hitters and jumbled the top of the order, though he downplayed the mixing and matching before the game. “We have the same people playing, I think we just get so involved in the order,” Showalter said.

When Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce was sidelined for five games last week, his absence left a big hole in the lineup. Nobody realized it more than manager Buck Showalter. "He's in a little bit different stage of his career where people are counting on him, and he's kind of become a guy that we're leaning on," Showalter said. "That's what I've tried to relay to him, that you're a valuable part of this club. " Pearce, who was released by the Orioles earlier this season - and for the first six years of his career was the definition of a replacement player - has been one of several unlikely contributors for a team that won the American League East crown and is preparing to start the postseason on Thursday at Camden Yards.

Third baseman Manny Machado's decision to tag up on a ball hit to left center with two outs in the sixth Friday went against conventional wisdom. How many times have you heard growing up playing baseball did you hear the adage, “Don't make the first or last out at third base?” Well, Machado heard it, too. But he was watching center fielder Brett Gardner, who was flat-footed, meaning Gardner wasn't completely set to unleash a throw immediately. “I saw him camping under the ball and in that situation there, you really don't want to tag up especially with the ball in left center field,” Machado said.

Following another successful day of running the bases Thursday in Sarasota, Fla., Orioles third baseman will take another step toward returning to game action. Machado is expected to begin sliding drills Friday, his final step before he is able to play in extended spring training games, according to a club source. This would be the first time Machado has tried sliding since offseason surgery to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee. He was shut down during spring training because of a calf strain just before starting sliding drills.

Manny Machado finally hit against live pitching, should sprint soon and may have sneaked in a couple dashes in Sarasota, Fla., when no one was looking Saturday. The Orioles All-Star third baseman, who had offseason surgery on his left knee in October, has been steadily doing his rehabilitation in Florida without a set timetable for his return. On Saturday, he took a step forward by hitting against live pitching, specifically left-hander Johan Santana, who his rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

Milwaukee Brewers reliever and Venezuelan murder suspect Julio Machado, may be freed from prison to play during the 1992 season, according to Venezuelan officials.A Venezuelan superior court judge Tuesday reduced the charges against Machado from intentional murder to unintentional murder, after a request by his lawyers.The reduction of charges opens the door for Machado's attorneys to request that the pitcher be given "provisional freedom." That would enable him to leave the country without bail to play for the Brewers.

The way things have gone this week in Baltimore, it would not be a tremendous surprise if news broke tomorrow that Francis Scott Key plagiarized "The Star-Spangled Banner. " Four days after the shocking Ray Rice elevator video placed Charm City in a very uncharming light , Major League Baseball announced on Friday that Orioles corner infielder  Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games after testing positive for an amphetamine. The suspension is a major blow to the Orioles, who are heading toward the postseason already without star players Manny Machado and Matt Wieters, and a second national embarrassment for a city that remains at the center of the NFL's domestic abuse scandal.

Manny Machado had the partially torn ligament in his right knee repaired successfully Wednesday morning, and the third baseman remains on the timeline to return to the club for spring training next season, according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The operation was performed at 6 a.m. in Los Angeles by surgeon Dr. Neal ElAtrrache, who did a similar procedure last October on Machado's left knee. “Doctors said everything went well, as expected,” Showalter said. “They had what they thought was going to happen, what they thought they were going to find.” Showalter said Machado will stay in Los Angeles to do his initial recovery for about three weeks, as originally planned.

Manny Machado's decision to have surgery on his right knee already has ended his season, and the timing of the procedure -- and its recovery -- might prevent the third baseman from being with the Orioles through the end of the regular season. Scheduled to have season-ending surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles to repair a partially-torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his right knee, Machado might not be back to support his teammates until a possible postseason game. Machado will fly to the West Coast on Tuesday for the procedure, which will be performed by Los Angeles Dodgers team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the same doctor who did the same procedure on his left knee last year.

Now that it has become clear the Orioles will be without third baseman Manny Machado for the remainder of the season, the club's front office is going to have to decide just how confident it is in the ability of the current roster to hold on to the top spot in the American League East and make a strong postseason run.

CHICAGO -- With Manny Machado out for the season and facing right knee surgery, Chris Davis could see a lot of time at third base over the season's final five weeks and any postseason run. Davis made his sixth consecutive start at third base Saturday, and as long at Steve Pearce continues hitting while playing first base, he likely will remain there barring a trade. When Davis doesn't play, expect Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop to also get some action at third base, depending on which one of the two plays second base.

Manny Machado strolled into his news conference Monday looking every bit like an 18-year-old kid, not a multimillionaire draft pick charged with helping rebuild a franchise. The baby-faced high school shortstop, who signed a $5.2 million contract with the Orioles after he was drafted third overall in the 2010 amateur draft, was dressed in a baggy Aberdeen IronBirds jersey that looked at least a size too big. It reminded you of a kid who shows up to his junior prom wearing his father's dress shirt.

Needing room on their 40-man roster, the Orioles have removed backup infielders Jose Leon and Luis Lopez, and reserve catcher Robert Machado. All three players passed through waivers, refused outright assignments to Triple-A Ottawa and became free agents. Leon didn't play after Sept. 26 because of a strained left calf muscle that he's rehabbing in Puerto Rico. He batted .322 with 17 homers at Ottawa, but only .182 with two homers in 31 games with the Orioles. Lopez spent the entire season with the Orioles after beating out Clay Bellinger for the utility job in spring training.

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.
