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.

Last night's thunderstorms matched the gloom Orioles fans likely felt on their couches as the series opener with the Blue Jays progressed, so you're forgiven for not reading up on the rest of the night's action. That's why blogger/reporter Jon Meoli writes the Coffee Companion -- where every morning, Monday through Friday, he'll run back the biggest sports headlines from the previous day. Three-run shots - Blue Jays fans threw hats into center field late in Tuesday's game, marking their “hat trick” of three-run home runs in their 9-3 win over the Orioles . Toronto asked to check Miguel Gonzalez' glove for a foreign substance after four stellar innings from the Orioles starter, and the search turned up nothing.

TORONTO -- Third baseman Manny Machado appeared in his fourth and final extended spring training game Wednesday afternoon in Sarasota, Fla. He played seven innings at third base and was 3-for-4 with three singles. Machado is scheduled to travel north to Baltimore on Thursday, and he is set to play nine innings at third base in his first minor league rehabilitation game Friday at High-A Frederick. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Machado will likely remain at Frederick through the weekend, but he wouldn't divulge the next step on his minor league rehab assignment.

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 third baseman Manny Machado, who resumed running the bases Wednesday in Sarasota, Fla., could go on a minor league rehabilitation assignment next week if all goes well. Running the bases -- and making the lateral cuts that involves -- is the final step in Machado's rehab from offseason surgery to repair a torn patellofemoral ligament in his left knee. During spring training, Machado was sidelined when running the bases because of a calf sprain, slowing his progress. He has been in Sarasota working his way back to this point.

BOSTON -- Left-handed reliever Zach Britton was the latest victim of the illness bug that's gone around the clubhouse the past two weeks. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Britton was sent back to the team hotel before Friday's game and was unavailable to pitch. Britton received an IV treatment early Friday morning, Showalter said.  That was part of the reason left-hander Brian Matusz, who was the only left-hander available, went 2 2/3 innings in yesterday's 8-4 win at Fenway Park, Showalter said.

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.

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.

It would be easy enough to look at the way the Orioles have hung around the .500 mark through the first three weeks of the new season and wonder what might have been had Manny Machado been able to start the season on time and had J.J.Hardy not temporarily been reduced to a part-time player by back and hamstring problems. It also would be grossly unfair to the three players who have stepped into that breach. Jonathan Schoop might be getting more "seasoning" at Triple-A Norfolk now if Machado were playing every day at third base.

TORONTO -  Stuck in Sarasota, Fla., since the beginning of spring training while recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will take a major step in his comeback Friday, when he is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment at High-A Frederick. Machado, 21, played in his third extended spring training game on Tuesday, and he is scheduled to play seven innings at third base Wednesday in Sarasota before traveling north on Thursday.

BOSTON - With Manny Machado still recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee, Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop has filled in for him for much of the first three weeks of the season. Schoop had made 11 straight starts (out of 13 overall) at third base before Sunday night's game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. But Schoop competed for the second base job in spring training, and with Machado coming off a breakout season, Schoop's immediate future seems to be at second base.

Defense has been a staple of the Orioles' success the past two seasons, and the team enters this afternoon's game against the Boston Red Sox leading the major leagues with a .995 fielding percentage. The Orioles have made just three errors this season, all of them at third base by players filling in for Platinum Glove winner Manny Machado. They also haven't made an error in seven road games this season. Last year's team set a major league record for fewest errors in a 162-game season (54)

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.

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.
