Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) has been cleared to resume baseball activities such as hitting, running outside and fielding ground balls. However, he plans to alter the way he runs in an effort to stabilize his left knee. "It's all muscle memory," he said. "I've ran my entire life how I did last year, and obviously I had two injuries in the past two years, and that's definitely not right. And from what I saw (while analyzing video Friday), it's a fix, it's an easy fix, but it's something that's more mental than anything else. It's more of getting the right positioning and getting my gluteus and quads (involved)." Machado is more than a month ahead of schedule with his rehab and hopes to be cleared at his next appointment in about six weeks so he can begin playing spring training games.
