Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado sprained his right knee taking a swing Monday night against the New York Yankees and needed help to get off the field.

Batting in the third inning Monday night, Machado twisted his knee while hitting a broken-bat grounder to shortstop. He dropped in a heap in the batter's box and gripped his knee in obvious pain as Derek Jeter made the throw to first base.

After a check by head trainer Richie Bancells, Machado limped off the field on the shoulders of Bancells and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter.

The exact nature of the injury was not immediately announced by the Orioles.

Earlier in the game, Machado doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly.

Machado missed the first month of the season while recovering from surgery on his left knee.
