MLB News: Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado Set For Return
By Lou Ramon Aguila | April 30, 2014 9:25 AM EST
Third baseman Manny Machado is reportedly scheduled to join the Baltimore Orioles after spending his rehab with Class-A Frederick, a reliable league source disclosed on Tuesday.
The 21-year old Machado is a career .279 with 21 homers and 97 RBIs. His presence could give the Orioles a big boost at the plate, and perhaps the finest defensive third baseman in the game.
It has been a long road to recovery for Machado, who suffered a serious back injury in September and sustained setbacks during Spring Training.
"Machado played for Frederick over the weekend. He has been rehabbing back from offseason left knee surgery after a season-ending injury suffered in late September, and he was brought along slowly this spring before a setback while running the bases slowed his timetable," via Real GM.
Machado could make his season debut when Orioles host the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first of a two-game series on Tuesday.
