Machado knee injury: No more updates Monday night

In post-game comments to MASN's Gary Thorne, Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated that there would not be any update on the severity of Manny Machado's knee injury on Monday night.

Machado suffered what looked to be a devastating injury to his left knee on an innocuous-looking jog into first base as he singled in the seventh inning of Monday's 5-4 loss to the Rays.

According to Showalter, there was a problem with the film of whatever initial x-rays were taken in Tampa and that could not be read. Machado will be returning to Baltimore with the Orioles and will get an MRI in Baltimore on Tuesday.

Showalter would not offer any speculation about what Machado's injury might be, saying only that "Manny will play for the Baltimore Orioles again at a high level."
