The San Diego team is positive in the days after the spectacular fall of the Dominican third baseman, in which he suffered a sprained left ankle.
Two days after suffering an injury that alerted San Diego Padres, Manny Machadodespite feeling sore, according to the team, is in a good position.
This was revealed by the team’s interim leader, Ryan Flahertywho is covering the position of Bob Melvin while he is on the list of disabled by COVID-19. In accordance with Flaherty despite the pain and swelling, the third baseman’s situation is in a good place, given the circumstances.
“Has some purple there (on the left ankle), but overall he’s moving pretty well and feels good. He’s not in the starting lineup tonight. Apart from that, I think there is quite a lot of optimism”, said the leader to the media, prior to the start of the game on Monday of the Fathers against Arizona Diamondbacks.
However, despite the optimism that may exist within the team, no one knows exactly how much time the third baseman will miss. Although X-rays were negative for broken bones, the player could go on the disabled list. The group will have to make a decision in the next few days regarding whether or not to place Machado on the disabled list, depending on what medical observations establish and in the best case, he could return at some point within ten days after the injury.
“(Manny Machado) He takes care of his body and has the ability to recover very quickly. Manny heals quickly”, he added Flaherty when talking about the expectations that the Dominican waste considerable time or not.
With this injury, the team’s two star players, Machado Y Fernando Tatis Jr.are kept out due to injury, with no clarity on when they will join the team again.
In the meantime, Machado remains one of the candidates for the award Most valuable Player of the National Leaguewith an average of .328, twelve homers and 46 RBIs, with which he has loaded the offense of San Diego in the absence of Tatis Jr. and leads the voting among third basemen of the “old circuit” for him Stars game of this year.
