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.

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.

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.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club nearly has decided which players will be promoted once rosters expand Monday. The Orioles undoubtedly will recall right-hander Ryan Webb from Triple-A Norfolk, as well as Steve Clevenger as the third catcher. The team also will add at least one utility infielder, either Jemile Weeks, Steve Lombardozzi or Jimmy Paredes. All three players are on the 40-man roster. But Showalter doesn't like to call up too many players right away. Some players will go to Sarasota to work out there in case there's a need later in the month.

Sometimes, when you write for a newspaper, you can't always get certain specific game details into a game story because of space constraints, deadlines or story angle. That happened Sunday afternoon, when the Orioles rallied in the ninth inning on an Adam Jones homer off the great Mariano Rivera and the embattled Jim Johnson closed the door to secure the 2-1 victory. What happened in the ninth inning became my story angle for Monday's newspaper - and some other game details that were included in the original online story had to be cut. So one of the better defensive plays made this year wasn't mentioned in the final version of my game story because it had no real bearing on the outcome of the Orioles' win. In the sixth inning, Yankees third baseman Luis Cruz hit a ball that was tailing down the third base line.

Before today's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter got on top of his pregame soapbox and talked about how most barehanded plays don't need to be made. He reminisced about his days as an analyst at ESPN and about how he thought the network too often fell in love with a barehanded play that was more style than substance. But third baseman Manny Machado's ninth-inning barehanded throwout of  Desmond Jennings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay wasn't one of those plays.

With 19 days remaining until Manny Machado's 21st birthday, Elias Sports Bureau and its number-crunching competitors are running out of time to come up with age-20 stats for the Orioles' prodigious third baseman. Here's the latest: If Machado, who has 99 hits this season, gets his 100th tonight in Detroit, he will tie Ty Cobb (100 hits in 71 games in 1907) and Alex Rodriguez (ditto in 1996) for the third-fewest number of games to reach 100 hits in a season by a player under 21, according to Elias.

The Orioles are back home after their first losing road trip of the season and will open an 11-game homestand Monday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. They still maintain a six-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East, but the standings have the potential to become bunched up again quickly. And Chris Davis continues to struggle at the plate. He was 2-for-22 with eight strikeouts in the six games in Chicago this past week. The Orioles scored just four runs in three games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, including one run over a 16-inning span after Saturday's rain delay, and the offensive problems can't be pegged just on Davis.

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. And that's not the only troublesome question Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter will have...

CHICAGO -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's season-ending right knee surgery is scheduled to be performed Wednesday in Los Angeles, manager Buck Showalter announced Sunday before the Orioles' 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Machado was expected to remain with the team on the flight back to Baltimore on Sunday, but he will leave for California on Tuesday. He is expected to remain on the West Coast for about three weeks, returning to Baltimore around Sept. 17-18.

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.

After seeing Orioles third baseman Manny Machado crumble to the ground beyond the first base bag with an apparent left leg injury on Monday afternoon, some of Machado's teammates reacted on Twitter following the Orioles' 5-4 walk-off loss in Tampa Bay. While Machado was running out a ball in the top of the seventh inning in Tampa Bay, it appeared that Machado's left knee buckled and gave way as his foot came across the outside of the first-base bag....

The Orioles four All Stars - Chris Davis, Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado -- met with the media before Monday's game. After talking about their All-Star selections, the group was asked about the 21-year-old Machado's defense and, specifically, the play he made Sunday in New York in which a grounder kicked off his glove into foul territory. Machado grabbed the ball and, with his momentum taking him six, eight, 10 feet into foul territory, turned and, on his back foot, threw a laser to first for the out.  The quartet was asked whether that was Machado's best defensive play as a big leaguer - he joined the club last August - and the press conference turned into a mini-roundtable symposium on Machado's glove.

CHICAGO - The Orioles are making their first trip to Wrigley Field since June 2008 for the three-game series against the Cubs that begins Friday afternoon. Right-hander Jake Arrieta, who has flourished with the Cubs, will face his former team for the first time. Right-hander Kevin Gausman pitches for the Orioles. Arrieta, sent to the Cubs in July 2013, is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season. He's allowed two runs or fewer in four of his past five starts. Gausman has won three of his past four starts, including a six-inning, two-hit, one-run outing in Cleveland on Sunday.
