Baseball can be an unforgiving game sometimes. What happened to the Baltimore Orioles Friday night was just life rubbing salt in their wounds. While Manny Machado was off enjoying victory and near perfection in his Los Angeles Dodgers debut, several Orioles players were being rescued from a freight elevator after their game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The group included outfielder Adam Jones, who documented the incident on his Instagram story.

The Baltimore Orioles designated struggling right-hander Chris Tillman for assignment on Friday, perhaps signaling the end to the 30-year-old’s tenure with the club. The former All-Star was just 1-5 with a 10.46 ERA before going on the disabled list with a back injury after two disastrous outings in May. He was also shelled during his rehab starts as minor leaguers batted .333 against him as he compiled a 0-3 mark and 6.75 ERA in six starts at four different destinations. Tillman went 56-30 from 2013-16 before falling on hard times.

Manny Machado sported a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform for the first time Friday, and the first thing everyone seemed to notice was the new number on the back of his jersey. After wearing the No. 13 during his entire career with the Baltimore Orioles, Machado will be wearing the No. 8 during his time with the Dodgers. The switch comes in part because All-Star Max Muncy already wears the No. 13.

Manny Machado will be at Miller Park this weekend to open the second half, just not in the way the Milwaukee Brewers were hoping for.

Instead of taking at-bats for the Brewers, Machado will be in the starting lineup for the Dodgers at shortstop Friday night in the opener of a three-game series.
