The Orioles' top position prospect, Jonathan Schoop, was scheduled to see back specialist Lee Riley at Johns Hopkins on Tuesday to receive further evaluation on a lower back strain that has landed him on the seven-day minor league disabled list. Schoop, rated the Orioles' No. 3 prospect by Baseball America, was hitting .268/.331/.386 with three homers and 18 RBIs for Triple-A Norfolk before he was placed on the DL on Thursday. It is believed that Schoop's back problems are rooted from continuing growth spurts the 21-year-old infielder has experienced for the past two years.

BOSTON - Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stifled the Red Sox for eight innings in the first game of a split doubleheader at Fenway Park, delivering arguably his best start of the season, but the Orioles still suffered a sobering, 3-2, walk-off loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Seemingly rested and recovered from their early-morning arrival in Boston on Friday after their scheduled afternoon game was postponed until Saturday because of rain, the Orioles received a boost from Gonzalez, but mustered just five hits on the afternoon.

The Orioles' top position player prospect, Jonathan Schoop, received a second opinion his ailing lower back on Wednesday morning in California, and the organization received an optimistic prognosis. After seeing spine specialist Dr. Robert Watkins, Schoop was diagnosed with a stress fracture in the lower back and was given the recommendation of rest for four weeks, but he was told he could return within five to six weeks. “That's actually good news for me personally,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

My apologies to everyone at the Orioles game last night - the weather was basically because I was in Frederick. However, since it was a minor league game, and not a close one at that, they ended the game at the first sight of bad weather and I was home sleeping well before your game resumed. Which is why I'm up early for the Coffee Companion, where we recap the local sports headlines every weekday. - The Orioles came from behind and waited out a nearly two-hour rain delay to take a third-straight win from the Rangers, 6-4 . - There was plenty of other Orioles news, including Kevin Gausman inexplicably throwing two innings in Aberdeen, which is no place for a major-league pitcher who is not injured.

SARASOTA, Fla. --In today's Baltimore Sun, I wrote about Orioles prospect Jonathan Schoop, who will leave the team this weekend to play for Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. This is Schoop's first big league camp. Last year, he made some appearances in games as part of a group of players who came in from minor league camp. So this isn't entirely new to him. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said this spring that one of the great advantages to having some of the younger prospects in camp is that they can observe firsthand how the veterans carry themselves.

Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop is starting to find his comfort zone at the plate, as was indicated by his four-hit game in the Orioles' 8-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. Schoop, who began the season with just two hits in his first 18 at-bats, is now riding a seven-game hitting streak and is hitting .429 over that span. His four-hit day bumped his season average to .304. During Friday night's game, I started getting questions from fans about what the Orioles are going to do with Schoop once third baseman Manny Machado returns from injury.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop homered for the second straight day Thursday, hitting a solo homer off Bud Norris in the first inning of the Orioles' second intrasquad game. Schoop's homer was a blast to left-center field that hit the television camera platform well beyond the fence. “Jon's in a good place,” manager Buck Showalter said. “I think Jonathan has had some very good role models [in camp]. Like I've said before, it's a matter of when, not if. That's what we're trying to judge here.

When first base coach Wayne Kirby asked Jonathan Schoop to clear his locker Saturday, he hoped it would help the second baseman snap out of his struggles at the plate. So Schoop carried his belongings out of Camden Yards and then turned around and brought everything back in, pretending like he had just gotten called up from the minor leagues. “I was trying to refresh my mind,” Schoop said. “I was coming in like my season was just starting out. Tried to refresh, you never know.

Orioles infield prospect Jonathan Schoop said Saturday that he plans to play for the Netherlands in this spring's World Baseball Classic. Schoop is listed on the Netherlands' provisional roster that came out this week, but he said was considering not playing because of a nagging left knee injury. “Last year, I felt a little big of weakness in my leg, in my knee,” Schoop said. “I was feeling not 100 percent. Right now it feels good.” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones will represent the United States in the WBC, and reliever Luis Ayala will pitch for Mexico.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After playing a strong World Baseball Classic with the Netherlands, Orioles top position prospect Jonathan Schoop is slated to return to major league camp on Tuesday, where manager Buck Showalter said he intends to get a few more looks at the 21-year-old before optioning him to the minors. “I'd like to get him some at bats here to take a little look at him,” Showalter said Thursday. “We've gotten very few peeks at him.” Schoop, who tied for the Netherlands team lead with 2 homers and 6 RBIs in eight WBC games, initially started at second base for the Netherlands, then moves to third when Jurickson Profar joined the team.

When the Orioles drafted Mychal Givens in the second round of the 2009 first-year player draft, he was a two-way prospect who owned a high-90s fastball as a pitcher. And while Orioles initially developed Givens as shortstop, the 24-year-old has gained new life in a transition to a relief pitcher that began last season. Givens took a huge step in his career over the weekend as he was promoted from High-A Frederick to Double-A Bowie. He's also given the Orioles' 2009 draft class some renewed hope -- no player from that class has made it to the major leagues.

NEW YORK -- It may have started in gut-punching fashion, but the Orioles left the Bronx on Sunday night feeling like they had just accomplished something significant. Not only did they dominate in Sunday's rubber match with an 8-0 blowout of the New York Yankees, but they beat pitching sensation Masahiro Tanaka and captured the series even after losing Friday night on a walkoff homer in the ninth inning. “It's huge, especially with being a division game on the road,” Orioles designated hitter Steve Pearce said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The replay system hasn't been kind to the Orioles over the past three weeks as four of the five calls the club has challenged have not been overturned. The Orioles' luck started to change in the third inning of Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, when first baseman Chris Davis was awarded a grand slam following a crew-chief review on a ball that was initially called a double down the left-field line. Davis' third career grand slam gave the Orioles a 5-0 lead.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Watching the Orioles for the past two weeks has to be especially frustrating for fans because the team's starting rotation, which had struggled with consistency over the season's first two months, is now pitching extremely well. But the Orioles still aren't winning. The quality start can sometimes be an overrated statistic, but over the past 11 games, the Orioles have recorded 10 quality starts, including eight straight games following the club's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday.

Yes, the Orioles face another American League East team today, their third of four consecutive series against division foes. But the most important Orioles-related thing happening in Florida today will not be at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. It will occur at a physician's office in Gulf Breeze, Fla., when renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews re-examines catcher Matt Wieters' strained right elbow.

There were incredibly long lines at Camden Yards before gates opened this morning for the final game of the season. The first 25,000 fans 15 and over will get a Chris Davis bobblehead. Davis was selected for a bobblehead by the fans earlier in the season. Before the game, Davis will be given the annual Most Valuable Oriole award. “I love what he's done defensively and how he's handled all the attention,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It would be real easy to give in, a little pass on some phase of the game, as good as he's having offensively, but he hasn't.” Center fielder Adam Jones and catcher Matt Wieters aren't in the starting lineup today.

The weather is heating up and so are the Orioles hitters, which should make for a very entertaining summer in the wide-open American League East. Enjoy it while you can. The Orioles are looking more and more like the resourceful 2012 team that ended the franchise's 14-season playoff drought, and the addition of big-swinging Nelson Cruz has given the lineup additional swagger while the team works through a series of early season injuries. Whether that means this is the year when the Orioles make a serious run at the World Series remains to be seen.
