While batting against the Yankees on Monday night (GameTracker), Orioles third baseman Manny Machado suffered a sprained right knee. Here's a split-screen look at what happened:

That doesn't look good, but at this writing it's being characterized as "just" a sprain. The Orioles will know more when Machado is re-evaluated on Tuesday. It's not certain how long he'll be sidelined.
