Orioles @ Tigers Game 3 (Hardy scratched)


Greetings from Comerica Park, where the Orioles will try to avoid being swept by the Tigers…

*Shortstop J.J. Hardy was a late scratch and had his batting practice cut short with another back spasm, this time in a different place. Hardy also missed Friday’s game and we should know more post game on this latest injury.

*Manny Machado is scheduled to have another functional baseball day on Sunday as he continues to progress forward. The bigger test after he does all the activities is to see how he feels on Monday, with Machado reporting on Friday –following a day of activities– that he felt great.

“His next step is hopefully running full speed,” manager Buck Showalter said. “The last thing he’s had yet to do is sprint. And to be able to do it the next day and the next day so to speak. I don’t know when that’s going to be.”

*Michael Almanzar (knee) will start light baseball activities on Monday, with Luis Ayala resuming throwing in Triple-A that day as well.

*Dylan Bundy is slated to throw a 30-pitch bullpen session on Monday, off a regular mound, with Johan Santana scheduled for a situational side.

*Outfielder Francisco Peguero (wrist) will resume baseball activities and start a hitting progression on Monday.
