Buck Showalter Is “Very Confident” Manny Machado Will Be Playing “Early Next Season”
This day seemed dreadfully long. I’ve been waiting for news on Manny Machado‘s injury and hoping for the best.
“So far, so good,” Showalter added according to MASNSports.com’s Roch Kubatko.
Dr. Wilckens has yet to confirm the reading of Machado’s MRI, Showalter told the media what he heard from the radiologist. Injury expert Will Carroll, tweeted that Machado could be ready by Opening Day 2014. He expects the injury to be a grade two or three MCL sprain.
@BaltimoreDaveS 2 or 3.
