07:27 AM ET 10.15 | Now, the clock starts, with a target set at roughly six months. Manny Machado underwent reconstructive surgery on his left knee Monday. The surgery was performed in Los Angeles by Dodgers orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic. The Orioles announced that Machado decided to have surgery last Thursday. The surgery, which took about 75 minutes, went as expected, and Machado's recovery time is estimated to be about six months. Opening Day is March 31, so it is probable that Machado will not be available for the season's start. "The six months is conservative," Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said. "The schedule will not drive Manny's rehabilitation. The doctors and Manny will determine when he's ready."

I think he's the next great 3rd baseman.

not only will the doctor know when Machado can play, but more importantly Machado will know. Just hope Machado does not rush back.

He is a top five now. Maybe , no probably, more than that now. That ball park helps, but he can hit anywhere. those doubles just become triples and inside parkers on different fields.

I was thinking Selerino Sanchez.

What a weird looking injury that as, just running down to first base. Nice kid with bags of talent. I wish him the best.
