Orioles third baseman Manny Machado hurt his right knee in a game against the New York Yankees and was helped off the field.

The team described the injury as a right knee sprain and said he would undergo an MRI Tuesday.

"We'll just wait for the results," Machado said in front of his locker, where a pair of crutches stood. "Hopefully it is on the good side other than the bad."

"There's a chance we may have dodged a bullet," manager Buck Showalter said.

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 Showalter.

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