Manny Machado (back) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Thursday.

Machado received an anti-inflammatory injection for his back after Tuesday's game, so it's no surprise that he's getting the day off Wednesday.

Ryan Flaherty started at third base in his absence.

The 21-year-old third baseman has homered in five out of his last eight games and is on a six-game hitting streak. Machado owns a .269/.315/.423 slash line with nine home runs and 20 RBI.
