Padres Star Sprains Ankle

San Diego Padres star Manny Machado has been diagnosed with an ankle sprain. 

Machado left Sunday's game early due to his injury. Although an ankle sprain is certainly not the best news ever, it is good to hear that he hasn't fractured it.

At this juncture, there hasn't been an estimated recovery time announced for Machado. Given his importance to the club, the Padres will be hoping it's short term. In 65 games this season, he has 12 home runs, 46 RBIs, and a .329 batting average.
