Manny Machado goes to the Padres’ disabled list

Manny Machado goes to the Padres’ disabled list

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Padres quarterback Manny Machado went on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a split left hand.

Machado was injured Monday night. His placement on the disabled list was retroactive to Tuesday, and manager Bob Melvin said there’s a chance he’ll return next week when the Padres play the New York Yankees.

“He’s getting better, but we’ve got a bad day coming up,” Melvin said before the Padres opened the series, “We don’t feel like he can play this weekend, we can go back three times, so he can go back to New York.” Against the Red Sox, from Boston. “It’s not something you want to rush into. It’s a boy who plays with pain. We saw that last year. We just want to get on with it and hope it’s 100% when we get to New York.”

Like the rest of the star-studded Padres lineup, Machado hasn’t been able to shine. 231 with five home runs and 19 home runs.

He has been an All-Star in each of the past two seasons and was runner-up in National League Most Valuable Player voting last year.

The Padres called up Brandon Dixon, who can play on or off the field, from Triple-A El Paso.

San Diego lost nine of 11 games to move into fourth place in the NL West, 7 1/2 behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres entered the season with World Series expectations after reaching the National League Championship Series last year.
