ESPN.com's Stephania Bell reports that "all the physical restrictions related to Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's reconstructive knee surgery have been lifted by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, whom Machado visited Thursday in Los Angeles for a follow-up evaluation." The news would seem to keep the hope alive that Machado might be ready to start the season in the Orioles lineup, rather than on the disabled list.
