O's Machado has repairs

BALTIMORE -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has undergone surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee. Monday's operation was performed in California by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, according to the team.

The 75-minute procedure included an arthroscopy and open reconstruction of the medial patellar femoral ligament. A hamstring tendon was used to graft a replacement for the ruptured ligament.

Recovery time is estimated to be around six months.

The 21-year-old Machado played in every game this season before the injury, which occurred on Sept. 23 when he stepped awkwardly on first base in a game at Tampa Bay.

A first-time All-Star this season, Machado hit .283 with 14 homers, 71 RBIs and 51 doubles.

 

A's Gray needs surgery

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Athletics rookie right-hander Sonny Gray will have surgery on his left thumb to repair a torn ligament.

Grey injured his glove hand on a comebacker by Detroit's Prince Fielder in a 3-0 Game 5 loss in the AL division series Thursday night, which ended Oakland's season. He underwent an MRI exam Friday. The date of surgery is yet to be determined.

Also, 2012 Gold Glove right fielder Josh Reddick is likely to have arthroscopic surgery on a sprained right wrist that twice landed him on the disabled list.
