"We'll see where we are at the end of [Sunday]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said prior to the Orioles' 9-3 loss to the Royals. "I think the biggest part of that equation is what Manny thinks. We're a lot closer than we were."

Showalter said Machado will likely be the DH at Frederick again on Monday.

"Who knows? Manny might be another four or five days, six days [or] a week," Showalter said. "I don't think it's fair to say it's going to be in this realm. It's not fair to Manny, [and] it has nothing to do with the Chris Davis move, in my mind."
