The Orioles received good news on Thursday regarding the status of Manny Machado. But that didn’t stop Orioles manager Buck Showalter from getting annoyed at how the news on his third baseman was disseminated.
Doctor Neal ElAttrache was responsible for performing Machado’s check up exam in Los Angeles. The Baltimore Sun reports that Showalter is annoyed that ElAttrache, also the Dodgers’ orthopedic surgeon, keeps giving injury updates on Machado to ESPN before even telling the Orioles.
When asked a question about Machado during a postgame interview Showalter responded, “I’ll let ESPN take care of that.”
