Orioles fans sat around waiting for hours on this gloomy Monday for an update on Manny Machado‘s injured right knee like:
Well, here’s your update.
Via MASNSports.com’s Roch Kubatko, Machado “has been diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain.” The Orioles will again give an update on his status and how long he’s expected to be on Wednesday.
Everyone get back to staring at that Spongebob’s coffee mug for 24 hours.
Though the Orioles haven’t committed to revealing much about Machado’s status after his MRI, folks on Twitter have had no problem jumping to conclusions.
Manny Machado injury video doesn't bode well for returning this season. Appears to dislocate/sublux patella and likely tear MPFLigament.

Granted I don't know the severity of Machado's injury, but I'm thinking if we make the postseason he will be back. This injury 2-6 weeks.

My advice (should you desire it for whatever strange reason)? Log off Twitter and wait for the official word tomorrow.
