The Baltimore Orioles have placed 3B Manny Machado (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right knee sprain. The team also selected the contract of 2B Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk.
Fantasy Tip: There is no exact timetable for Machado, but there is a chance he could return at some point during September, so owners should keep him on the bench or the disabled list. Chris Davis and Ryan Flaherty could both see time at third base while Machado is out. Flaherty could be an option for AL-only owners, depending on his playing time.
