Orioles 3B Machado in danger of missing opener

Updated: Sunday, March 16 2014, 06:19 PM EDT

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Time appears to be running out on Manny Machado in his bid to open the season with the Baltimore Orioles following knee surgery.


Machado had an operation in October to repair a torn ligament in his left knee. The All-Star third baseman hoped to return by opening day, but he hasn't run in five days.


Manager Buck Showalter said Saturday: "It's scar tissue that flared up and got a little sore and we decided not to push it, which is what we talked about all along."


The 21-year-old Machado was supposed to have an appointment Tuesday to re-evaluate the injury, but it is likely that visit will be postponed.


The Orioles open March 31 against Boston, so Machado will obviously need a late surge to be ready.
