Orioles vs. Blue Jays

Greetings from Camden Yards, where the Orioles could clinch the American League East with a win tonight.

*Nick Markakis has been announced as one of baseball’s 30 nominees for this year’s Roberto Clemente Award. The award recognizes a Major League Baseball player who best represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement.

*Steve Johnson is here to see the team as the Baltimore native is scheduled to undergo surgery on September 24th to have bone spurs removed from his right shoulder.

*Manny Machado, who is rehabbing back from season-ending knee surgery, will fly to Baltimore on Wednesday night and is expected to be with the team for Friday’s game. The Os will also retake their team picture at some point this weekend so it can include Machado and catcher Matt Wieters.
