Machado's peers react to his injury (update)

In Monday's series finale at Tampa Bay, Manny Machado suffered a gruesome knee injury while rounding first base. Immediately after being carted off the field in a stretcher, there was an outpouring of support for the O's third baseman.

Below are just some of the many tweets from Machado's peers in reaction to his injury.

Update: Machado suffered a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left kneecap, which is considered good news for the O's star third baseman. As of now, the plan of action is to take the conservative route by rehabbing the injury without surgery. He is expected to be out 4-6 weeks and should be ready to go by spring training of next season.
