Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) has been participating in a rehab program but is not taking part in any baseball activities at this point. There is no timetable for his return.
Despite starting up a rehab program, the Orioles third baseman has been taking some time away form baseball activities, although there have been no reports indicating a setback. He is eligible to return on August 27, but until we see him participating in baseball activities it is difficult to imagine he will be activated in the minimum 15 days. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
