Orioles & Manny Machado: Leave early as a precaution

Machado hit a solo homer and walked in his two plate appearances during Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Rangers before leaving the game after four innings.

Machado was seen in the circle of the cover at the back of the room and was called to the dugout, with Jace Peterson. The early exit in a two-run game fueled speculation that the Orioles might have formally agreed to change Machado to another team, but apparently that was not the case. Instead, Machado was taken for precautionary purposes, according to Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun, with the Orioles reluctant to expose him more to the rainy conditions that plagued Camden Yards. Machado will remain a member of the Orioles as he prepares for his fourth appearance in the All-Star Game, but expects him to wear different colors before the end of the month.
