Orioles vs. Blue Jays

*No word on Manny Machado’s MRI on his left knee, although manager Buck Showalter was pretty optimistic about it today, saying that the initial feeling –based off the radiologist’ reading– is it’s not as bad as they thought.  The team is waiting on team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens to read the MRI, and I should have news on that shortly. Machado is expected to be at Camden Yards tonight and Showalter said he’s confident the 21-year-old will be a player for the Orioles early next season.

*Alexi Casilla was in the Orioles clubhouse when it opened and he actually traveled back with the team last night, instead of the original plan to stay in a Tampa Bay area hospital for monitoring. Casilla, who politely asked for the camera lights to not be used, is still foggy and said he had no memory of the collision play or staying in the game. Showalter, who left Casilla in to finish the inning, chided himself again today for keeping him in and said the infielder “sold it well” that he was OK. Casilla will not play tonight and will have to clear a bunch of MLB tests to be deemed OK to take the field, so there’s a good chance he’s done for the season as well.
