The AL East leading Baltimore Orioles lost third baseman Manny Machado to a knee injury in Monday night's game against the Yankees. Now the question is - just how serious in the injury. The initial call is a sprained knee but he will get a MRI today.

Machado was hitting .346 with 12 HRs in his last 34 games after a slow start to the season coming back from knee surgery on his other knee.

The O's beat the Yanks 11-3.

Mainer Ryan Flaherty is already holding down the shortstop spot while JJ Hardy recovers from injury. Flaherty also plays third base and could see some time there if Machado is lost for a period of time.
