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.

The flu that hit the Orioles clubhouse last week affected two more players Tuesday. The Orioles sent center fielder Adam Jones and right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek home from Camden Yards before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed because of rain. Neither player would have been available if the Orioles and Rays would have played. “From what I understand, it's going on all over,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It's not just in our locker room. Unfortunately, a lot of it is unavoidable other than don't touch or communicate with people all day. That's pretty hard to do in this sport.

Third baseman Manny Machado, who is recovering from left knee surgery in October, was scheduled for another “functional day” of working out Sunday in Sarasota, Fla., meaning he is doing most baseball activities, including jogging. He went through the workouts Thursday and felt fine Friday, which is an encouraging sign as the 21-year-old continues to rehabilitate his knee. The club would like him back sometime this month, but he'll need a minor league rehab stint once he can run at 100 percent.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has a "big day" scheduled today, according to manager Buck Showalter. He'll run sprints for the first time in Sarasota, Fla., as part of his rehabilitation from left knee surgery in October. The sense is that, if he rebounds from those sprints without any problems, the next step for Machado will be playing in games at extended spring training before an eventual minor league rehab assignment. There is no timetable for Machado's return, but I'd say we're looking at early- to mid-May before he is playing for the Orioles.

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.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz is available for today's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays after being bedridden the past two days with an illness that included a brief stay in a local hospital. Matusz said he first felt sick Friday morning, and that afternoon he went to a local hospital, where he received IV fluids and wasn't released until late at night. "I think that was just to get on IVs and make sure everything was OK and make sure that it wasn't a stomach problem,” Matusz said.

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.

After sprinting six times and taking four at-bats in a simulated game Monday, injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado really has one more thing to accomplish before beginning to play in games at extended spring training -- and that could happen as early as Tuesday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Machado ran 90-foot sprints six times Monday, but he has not yet cut on the bases while running. He is going to run 180-foot sprints Tuesday and could add cutting around the diamond then.

In the next step of his recovery from October knee surgery, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will take two at-bats against Johan Santana in a “simulated” game on Saturday in Sarasota, Fla. Machado, 21, can do everything but sprint. And he will not be running the bases Saturday. “Haven't heard the word sprint yet,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.  He likely will take some time in between at-bats against Santana, who is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

A collection of what other media outlets are saying about the Orioles as they prepare to complete their road trip with a 7:05 p.m. game against the New York Yankees tonight: * While Orioles fans wait for Manny Machado to return to the lineup, they can be happy knowing that the 21-year-old third baseman is among the "toolsiest" players in baseball, according to FiveThirtyEight.com's Jeff Sullivan .

It is fortunate for the Orioles that the 2014 season has opened with a burst of American League parity. They lost five of their first seven games and displayed all manner of disturbing tendencies in the process, but they picked a good time to do it since no one else in their division -- or the rest of the league -- had managed to win more than four games heading into Tuesday. So, in a way, the baseball cosmos was telling them not to panic. It's only the second week, and they don't have to look up very far from the outhouse to see the penthouse.

NEW YORK - J.J. Hardy is out of the starting lineup for the third straight game, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated that the shortstop is close to returning from nagging back spasms. Showalter said that Hardy could be an option off the bench for today's game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. “A lot better, much more available,” Showalter said. “I'm optimistic he'd be an option today. We'll see how the rest of the day goes. I wouldn't have said that yesterday.

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.

DETROIT - Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley made a point to talk to infielder Ryan Flaherty on Friday afternoon after watching Flaherty strike out three times against the Detroit Tigers. Flaherty so badly was trying to get a single, to get his first hit of the season, that he had lost focus on just hitting the ball hard somewhere, Presley said. He wanted to remind one of his hardest-working pupils to relax and not get too discouraged. "When you start thinking about base hits, you kind of get yourself in trouble," Presley said.
