Manny Machado Could Start Rehab Assignment


Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who resumed running the bases Wednesday in Sarasota, Fla., could go on a minor league rehabilitation assignment next week if all goes well.

Running the bases — and making the lateral cuts that involves — is the final step in Machado’s rehab from offseason surgery to repair a torn patellofemoral ligament in his left knee.

During spring training, Machado was sidelined when running the bases because of a calf sprain, slowing his progress. He has been in Sarasota working his way back to this point.
