Machado fully recovered from bout with meningitis
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Orioles infielder Manny Machado was hospitalized with meningitis last month, but is fully recovered and has resumed his offseason workouts.

"He was in good hands," executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said of Machado, who had a brief hospital stay and alerted the team's training staff in a timely manner. "He dealt with it swiftly and directly."

Machado hit .262/.294/.445 in 191 at-bats in his rookie season, making the transition from shortstop to third base easily despite jumping from Double-A to the Majors.

"I talked to him a couple times, and he's doing well and doing a full workout," manager Buck Showalter said of the 20-year-old infielder. "He's going to go in and get an opportunity to be our third baseman potentially, but he's got to earn it."
