Manny Machado could get clearance Thursday to resume baseball activities

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who is coming off offseason surgery on his left knee, will not attend this week's minicamp at the Ed Smith Stadium complex.

Instead, he is scheduled to visit Dodgers team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Thursday in Los Angeles to get clearance to resume baseball activities.

Machado is now scheduled to arrive in Sarasota for spring training on Feb. 6, a full week before pitchers and catchers report.

Missing the minicamp is not an indication of a setback in Machado’s recovery from the surgery in October, which was performed by Dr. ElAttrache, but more a result of ill-timed scheduling, according to Orioles manager Buck Showalter.
