Manny Machado will undergo surgery today at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee. I’ll beat the rush and pass along that it’s going to be a “successful” surgery and the time frame of a four- to six-month recovery period will remain unchanged.
Five months would put Machado in the middle of March, still enough time to get ready for opening day at Camden Yards. In the meantime, he can work on his upper-body strength.
