Orioles third baseman Manny Machado returned to the starting lineup Sunday after missing two games with right groin stiffness, going 1-for-2 with a solo homer and two walks. Manager Buck Showalter didn't release his starting lineup until he saw Machado go through all pregame baseball activities - he took batting practice, ran the bases and fielded grounders. “It still bothers me a little bit, but nothing too crazy,” Machado said of his groin after the game. “Feels much better than what it was initially when it first happened.

There seemed to be a sense of relief among Orioles fans that third baseman Manny Machado's right knee injury isn't as bad as it looked. X-rays were negative, and Machado said he was a “little sore” after the game. Well, the good news is that Machado walked over to reporters after the game while a pair of crutches went untouched by his locker. The sobering news, though, is that clean X-rays don't mean much in these cases. It's the Tuesday morning MRI that will reveal whether Machado and the Orioles dodged a bullet or whether the club will have to immediately fill Machado's defensive and offensive presence.

Atholton senior Steve Lombardozzi Jr. excels at running the fast break. The returning All-County point guard augments his accurate long-distance shooting with pinpoint passes. Possessing exceptional court vision, he pushes the ball up the court in the Raiders' frenetic offensive attack, often surprising teammates with spectacular passes that lead to easy layups. The fact that he is running at all, much less with the quickness and speed that is essential to Atholton's success, might surprise the physicians who delivered him. That is because Lombardozzi was born with clubbed feet.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was able to walk without help after Monday night's game against the New York Yankees, but he said he has no feel for what Tuesday's MRI on his injured right knee might show. “We don't know,” he said. “We will know more tomorrow about what's wrong with it. The MRI will give us an idea of how many days I'm going to be out. That's what's going to tell us what's going on.” Machado suffered a right knee sprain on a swing in the third inning and appeared to be in great pain after he crumpled to the ground.

The Orioles have acquired veteran catcher Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres, along with cash, in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton, the club announced before Saturday's game. The club also recalled infielder Steve Lombardozzi, an Atholton grad, from Triple-A Norfolk. Hundley, who is a career .238/.296/.389 hitter, gives the Orioles a veteran catcher with Matt Wieters on the disabled list and his status for the rest of the season uncertain. Hundley, 30, was hitting .271 with one homer and three RBIs in 33 games with San Diego this season.

Keeping a promise not to shave until his team loses, Reservoir baseball coach Adam Leader's beard is getting longer and longer as Howard County's youngest school continues to show the older programs how the game is played. "Hopefully, by the end of the season, it will be big and bushy," said Leader, whose assistant coach, Josh Sullivan, isn't shaving, either. So far, the unranked Gators, playing only their second varsity season and first with a senior class, are 6-0. That includes yesterday's 3-1 upset of No. 4-ranked Atholton (2-2)

In the Washington Nationals' dugout Saturday morning, manager Davey Johnson explained his contingency plans at shortstop. If Ian Desmond suffered any kind of long-term injury, he said, Danny Espinosa would become the regular shortstop. If Desmond simply required a day off, he would keep Espinosa at second. And short? "I'd play Lombo there," Johnson said. A reporter playfully reminded Johnson that he had been saying Steve Lombardozzi had not been assured a spot on the team yet. "You guys are sneaky," Johnson replied.

The first time Kevin Kelly saw Steve Lombardozzi, he wondered whether the boy could make the throw from shortstop to first base. Lombardozzi was a freshman trying to make the Atholton varsity team. Kelly, the coach, had heard that Lombardozzi, the son of a major leaguer, could play, but he stood 5 feet 2, 110 pounds. "He was a little guy," Kelly said. Lombardozzi made the team, but Kelly played him at double-play depth at all times, just so he could make the throw. In the coming years, Lombardozzi played such flawless defense that scouts came to Atholton to watch him. They would tell Kelly that Lombardozzi did not possess the size or the arm strength to play professionally.

Normally, a blowout win against the New York Yankees is celebrated with abandon at Camden Yards. Add in that Monday's 11-3 victory separated the Orioles and the Yankees even further in the American League East race and that one of the offensive heroes was beleaguered slugger Chris Davis, and you'd have almost the perfect scenario for Orioles fans. Except that that feel-good vibe took a hard tumble in the third inning when 22-year-old third baseman Manny Machado collapsed in the batter's box after a swing and had to be helped off the field.

The Orioles have posted the lineup for Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates today, and Manny Machado is not in it. Fans likely will have to wait until the second game to see Machado start for the first time this season, though he was activated before the first game for his first major league action since Sept. 23. Manager Buck Showalter said he didn't want Machado to play 18 innings on his first day back. In a corresponding move, infielder Steve Lombardozzi (Atholton) has been optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.

During his pregame news conference, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he did not want third baseman Manny Machado to play 18 innings in his first day in the major leagues since injuring his left knee last Sept. 23. He also wasn't keen on Machado playing the first game of Thursday's doubleheader, sitting for several innings and then using him late in the second game as a pinch-hitter or for defensive purposes. There were some other factors, too, Showalter said, but ultimately that was the reasoning for Machado sitting out the first game . Machado will start Game 2 and play third base.

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.

Steve Lombardozzi, who grew up in Columbia and graduated from Atholton High School, made his Orioles debut Wednesday, batting ninth and playing second base. “It definitely means something. It's very exciting to be part of this organization now,” said Lombardozzi, who was acquired from the Detroit Tigers in a late March trade for Alex Gonzalez. “I grew up coming to games here as a little kid so, yeah, I'm excited to get out there and get a game under my belt.” Lombardozzi said he's had a bunch of ticket requests, but it's nothing new for him. He played parts of three seasons with the Washington Nationals.

Steve Lombardozzi may not end up as a fulltime infielder for the Orioles. It doesn't matter. And maybe Alex Gonzalez's bat has been dipped into the fountain of youth and he ends up hitting this season like he did in winter ball and this spring. It doesn't matter. Monday's trade that sent the 37-year-old Gonzalez to the Detroit Tigers for the 25-year-old Lombardozzi was an absolute gem for the Orioles. And it's exactly why Dan Duquette signs anyone and everyone over the winter, no matter how much it may frustrate fans wanting big moves or writers wanting a daily break from the “they signed whom?
