Padres Optimistic on Machado Injury "Manny's A Quick Healer"

There are injuries that make you hold your breath and injuries in which the entire baseball season flashes before your eyes in a cloud of dismal, incredulous smoke.

That was the feeling when Manny Machado had to be helped off the field in the first inning against the Colorado Rockies after spraining his ankle running to first.

But on Monday, optimism was the theme from Petco Park.

Padres interim manager Ryan Flaherty updated Manny Machado's ankle injury, why the team didn't place him on the injured list and why there's (incredibly) a sense of optimism for a quick return.
