Found April 17, 2014 on Pro Sports Daily:
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. Wednesday’s workout went well, with no problems, according to a club source. Machado will continue to run the bases in Sarasota throughout the week, including getting into extended spring training games, before the club decides whether he’s ready to join a minor league affiliate.
