Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has been given the green light to perform some baseball activities.

Machado’s doctor has cleared him to return to some baseball activities following a Friday checkup.

“He can hit, he can field ground balls, he can run,” Dr. Neal ElAttrache said via ESPM.

There is no timetable for the return of Machado who will later earn clearance to perfrome additional defensive maneuvers and base running.

“It looks like all the hard work is paying off,” Machado said. “I’m another day closer to getting back in that Orioles uniform.”

Machado finished the 2013 season hitting .283 with 14 home runs and 71 RBI.
