I’m glad it happened now than a little later in my career when I’m older. I’m young now [so] I’m going to recover faster.

CHICAGO – Manny Machado was hoping to play again this season. But, his right knee didn’t respond, and he’s going to have surgery on it next week in Los Angeles.

Dodgers team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed surgery on Machado’s left knee last October, will perform the procedure. The date has yet to be announced.

Machado injured the knee on Aug. 11, and he came to the Orioles on Friday and told them he decided to have surgery.

“Obviously, with the position we’re in now, you don’t want to hear about surgery. You want to try and get back out there on the field and be back with the team and help the team get the playoffs,” Machado said.
