Orioles Ubaldo Jimenez, Mark Trumbo scheduled to miss FanFest, Manny Machado's uncertain

At the moment, Manny Machado is expected to miss FanFest.

When autograph vouchers for FanFest go on sale Saturday morning at 10 a.m., three key players won't initially be available in any signing sessions.

Pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez and newly acquired first baseman/designated hitter Mark Trumbo are scheduled to miss FanFest on Dec. 12 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Jimenez and Trumbo both have previously scheduled personal commitments, and won't be in attendance.

Third baseman Manny Machado is not currently scheduled to be at FanFest, either, but the club is still hoping its young star can attend the annual offseason fan-themed event.

The Orioles couldn't confirm Machado's attendance by the time the team announced its autograph schedule Friday night, but still have several days to arrange for Machado to attend. 

Machado and center fielder Adam Jones are arguably the team's top draws for the event, especially with first baseman Chris Davis now a free agent. The autograph sessions for Machado and Davis were among the first to sell out for last year's FanFest.

As for purchasing vouchers for those who will be there, the Orioles' autograph policy for FanFest will duplicate last year's and is designed to support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH, as well as enhance the fan experience with shortened wait times. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station that is free of charge and will operate continuously throughout the day.

All other autograph stations at FanFest will require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers exclusively at orioles.com/fanfest, with all of the proceeds to benefit children's charities through OriolesREACH.
