Manny Machado continues making steady progress in his recovery from October 14, 2013 knee surgery.

Danny Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that Machado took side-to-side soft-toss grounders on Wednesday afternoon in Orioles camp without experiencing any issues. It was his first time doing lateral-movement drills since going under the knife.

Machado also had a mole removed from his back on Wednesday. That procedure went according to plan.
