Baltimore Orioles Platinum Glove third baseman Manny Machado begins a rehab assignment this Friday for the Frederick Keys, the Orioles High-A minor league affiliate. Machado had surgery on his left knee during the offseason and had been in Sarasota at the Orioles’ spring training facility recuperating.
Tickets for this weekend in Frederick are still available, for now, at the Frederick Keys official website. As more area Oriole fans in the area learn about the assignment, tickets should go pretty fast. Manny Machado is to the Orioles what Bryce Harper is to the Washington Nationals, except Machado graduated high school, and he isn’t a spoiled jerk-face.
