Orioles @ Cubs Game 3

*Manny Machado will undergo season-ending right knee surgery on Wednesday in Los Angeles, the same corrective procedure he had a year ago on his left knee. The surgery will once again be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache who will repair Machado’s partially torn medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL). Machado is expected to stay out there for 2-3 weeks before going to the team’s spring facility in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

The team is hopeful that Machado, who missed the first month of the season last year after undergoing surgery in October, will have more of a regular winter and be ready for Spring Training.

*The Orioles officially recalled Miguel Gonzalez from the Minor Leagues prior to today’s start against the Cubs, designating infielder Chord Phelps for assignment to clear a spot on the active roster.

Phelps was hitless in three at-bats for the Orioles this season and the move leaves the O’s with a short bench for the next week until September’s roster expansion.

Gonzalez has pitched to a 3.80 ERA in 20 games (19 starts) for the Orioles and was re-added to the rotation with struggling righty Ubaldo Jimenez moved to the bullpen last week.

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d
ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a
blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the
same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
