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.

The Orioles didn't initially expect to add one of their top position player prospects, first baseman Christian Walker, to their expanded roster this month. But with American League East wrapped up -- and 11 games remaining in the regular season -- the Orioles are expected to purchase Walker's contract from Triple-A Norfolk, according to a club source. Walker has been working out in Sarasota, Fla., as part of a taxi squad the Orioles could pluck from in case they needed an extra player.

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.

BOSTON -- Stressing that it was more precautionary than alarming, the Orioles sent starting shortstop J.J. Hardy back to Baltimore on Monday night to see a team doctor about his balky back. Hardy missed the Orioles' final two games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field over the weekend, and he will not return for the remainder of the road trip - marking at least a five-game absence. Even if he could play Wednesday in the series finale against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Orioles didn't like the idea of him having to take another round airplane trip so quickly.

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.

After his eighth-inning homer tied the game Wednesday night in the Orioles' eventual 5-2 win, Jonathan Schoop struggled to explain the magic that seems to be in his bat when he faces the New York Yankees. While Adam Jones' three-run blast -- the 12th of his 23th homers this season that has given the Orioles the lead -- was the difference in the game, Schoop's homer was monumental in the comeback. And in nine games against the Yankees this season, Schoop is hitting .380 (11-for-29)

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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.   - Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been coy in recent days about the availability of his late-inning arms, but before Friday night's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays, he disclosed that five of his relievers wouldn't be available. Later Friday, that would put the fate of a scoreless game in the hands of recently recalled relievers who joined the club when rosters expanded earlier this week. And the Orioles bullpen, devoid of many of the arms they would turn to in a tight game, allowed three runs in the eighth inning of an eventual 3-0 before an announced 14,632 at Tropicana Field.

Although they'd never say it publicly, the Orioles knew heading into last week just how important it was to flex their muscles in an 11-game homestand against three clubs with losing records. With Thursday's 9-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds before an announced 21,114 at Camden Yards, the Orioles posted their fourth sweep of three or more games this season. More impressive, the Orioles finished off their longest homestand of the year with a 9-2 record, outscoring the Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins and Reds by a combined 67-38.

Manager Buck Showalter stood in the Orioles dugout Tuesday night talking to player development director Brian Graham about the distinct sound that the bat makes when Jonathan Schoop squares up a pitch. Moments later, Schoop sent a pitch into the Reds bullpen for a solo home run in the Orioles' 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds. “You stand around the cage, and there are certain guys who have that different sound off their bat,” Showalter said “About that time I said that, it was, 'Yeah, that sound,' as it was leaving the park.” In the Orioles' 6-0 victory over the Reds on Wednesday, Schoop bettered himself.

After the Orioles' 4-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in a lackluster game that lasted three hours and 37 minutes and featured 319 pitches, manager Buck Showalter played an impromptu word game with reporters. “That was a grind-out win,” Showalter said. “That was such a, I wouldn't say lethargic.” Sluggish? “Nope wasn't sluggish, that's a bad word,” Showalter said. Tedious? “No.” Grueling? “That's close,” Showalter said.

Your browser does not support iframes. Nick Markakis has seen Adam Jones make his share of spectacular defensive plays over the years, so the right fielder might be the best judge of the center fielder's talents. And Markakis said after Monday's game that the double-play that Jones turned in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 9-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards might be one of the best he has seen his teammate make. With two runners on base and no outs, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria lofted a fly ball that appeared to be headed over the left-center field fence and into the Orioles bullpen.

CHICAGO -- With Manny Machado out for the season and facing right knee surgery, Chris Davis could see a lot of time at third base over the season's final five weeks and any postseason run. Davis made his sixth consecutive start at third base Saturday, and as long at Steve Pearce continues hitting while playing first base, he likely will remain there barring a trade. When Davis doesn't play, expect Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop to also get some action at third base, depending on which one of the two plays second base.

CHICAGO - The Orioles hoped to have third baseman Manny Machado back from a right knee injury sometime next month, but any postseason run for the Orioles will be without their 22-year-old 2013 All-Star and Platinum Glove winner. Machado will have surgery on his right knee next week that will end his season, according to an industry source. This would be the second consecutive year that Machado's season has ended with surgery to one of his knees. Last September, he suffered a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee that required surgery and caused him to miss the first month of this season.

With news that Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is having surgery on his right knee and will be lost for the season, two questions immediately arise. How will this affect Machado long-term and how will this affect the Orioles short-term? Frankly, both are legitimate concerns. This will be Machado's second surgery in less than a year - one on each knee. It's his third serious injury in a little more than three years. The good news is that he is 22, he is in his physical prime and, at this age, his recuperative powers are about as heightened as they are going to get. It's much tougher to come back from knee surgeries at an advanced age. The bad news is the same.
