  • Padres' Manny Machado: Set for spring debut

    Machado (elbow) is starting as San Diego's designated hitter for Saturday's Cactus League matchup against the Brewers.

    Machado sat out the Padres' first few spring training games as he continued to work his way back from offseason elbow surgery, but it now seems he's ready to at least serve in a DH role. It remains unclear whether or not Machado will be able to cover third base by the time the Padres open the season against the Dodgers on March 20.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Will DH in spring games soon

    Padres manager Mike Shildt said Wednesday that Machado (elbow) will be ready to serve as a designated hitter in Cactus League games "sooner rather than later," AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Machado won't be in the lineup for the Padres' spring opener Thursday, but Shildt noted that the slugger is "trending in a really good place" as he works his way back from surgery to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow. San Diego has an early start to its season with two games against the Dodgers on March 20 and 21 in South Korea, but Machado is tracking toward being ready for that series, even if he's deployed as a DH initially.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: On track entering spring training

    Machado (elbow) is swinging with 100 percent effort and playing catch to start spring training, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Machado is recovering from surgery to repair an extensor tendon injury in his elbow, leaving his status for Opening Day in question. For now, the news is positive, with general manager A.J. Preller saying that Machado has hit all expected benchmarks at this point, while also stating that he is "tracking toward" playing in the Padres' series against the Dodgers in Korea to kick off the regular season. Despite the positivity, there's still nothing definitive about Machado's status, as he is limited in the volume of his work and will be eased back into game action.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Could be limited to DH initially

    Machado (elbow) might not be ready to play defense Opening Day, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Machado underwent surgery in early October to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow. It's an injury he dealt with for much of the 2023 campaign and one which kept him from playing the field in September. The designated hitter duty for Machado could potentially carry over into 2024, with Ha-Seong Kim sliding over to third base.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Undergoes elbow surgery

    Machado underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow, Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press reports.

    Machado's estimated recovery timeline is between 4-to-6 months. While that likely means he will be sidelined for the vast majority of spring training, there is a chance he'll be ready to go for Opening Day in 2024.
