Orioles | Manny Machado to have surgery

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) has elected to have surgery to repair a torn medial patellafemoral ligament in his left knee. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, and Machado is expected to need four to six months of rehab.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Machado's torn ligament isn't an ACL, PCL or MCL. The bad news is that he could be finishing up his rehab right around the start of the regular season. It could easily affect his performance in the early portion of the season, too. Tread carefully, but know that Machado's price probably won't come down at all because of this.
