Manny Machado (hand) placed on injured list
The San Diego Padres placed Manny Machado on the 10-day injured list due to a left hand fracture the club announced.
Machado had been attempting to avoid a stint on the injured list, but the club ultimately decided to place the superstar on it. His absence will leave a gaping hole in the middle of the San Diego lineup. Brandon Dixon was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (knee) returns to lineup Friday
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (knee) is batting third and is serving as the designated hitter Friday vs the Orioles.
Guerrero ran the bases Friday morning and pinch hit in Thursday’s game, so he’ll be ready to return to the lineup after missing Wednesday’s game. He is hitting .319/.358/.574 in the month of May.
Joey Bart (groin) placed on IL
Joey Bart was placed on the 10-day IL due to a groins strain.
Bart has dealt with groin issues throughout the season and will head to the IL to try to get things right once and for all. It’s unclear how long he will be out. Patrick Bailey has been called up in a corresponding move.
