Manny Machado moves side-to-side for grounders for first time since surgery


This might sound trivial, like a silly update not worth mentioning in one player’s rehab from a knee injury.

Each player goes through these small steps, after all. Is it really worth discussing each one of them as the player works his way back?

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun passes along the following bit of news, starting with an unpleasant event for Machado.

In case you need a reminder on why this is newsworthy I will refer you to the video below:

When Machado is treating us to plays like this one it just makes the world a better place.
