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.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter isn't announcing his starters for Monday and Tuesday yet. But assuming neither one is needed out of the bullpen Saturday, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Game 3 and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez will pitch Game 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals. Right-hander Bud Norris gets the nod for Game 2, partially because Chen has fared much better against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium than at home -- he has a 4.17 ERA in six starts overall, but a 2.84 ERA in two starts in Kansas City.

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.

First sustained cheer of the night: 7:12 p.m., as the grounds crew pulls back the tarp that had covered the field all day. Player introductions begin: 7:47 p.m. The orange towels begin waving with the introduction of longtime trainer Richie Bancells. Injured catcher Matt Wieters receives a pretty loud ovation, but the biggest - and most sustained - cheers go to Buck Showalter, who comes out with a Gary Williams-like fist pump. Among the players, it sounds as if Nick Markakis gets the loudest ovation coming out of the dugout.

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)

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.

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.

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.

It may be the oddest timing for a contract extension announcement in recent memory - on the eve of the first American League Championship Series game at Camden Yards in 17 years and just weeks away from free agency. But the Orioles took care of a major chunk of offseason business Thursday by agreeing to a three-year deal worth $40 million with shortstop J.J. Hardy. He's locked up through 2017 with a team option for 2018. “Is there ever a bad time to announce J.J. continuing as an Oriole?

Pregame introductions: As the Orioles are introduced before Game 3, former Tigers outfielder Delmon Young does not get a friendly reception. And it's difficult to tell whether Tigers fans are booing Nelson Cruz because it sounds the same as when Orioles fans cheer him. National anthem: The Star-Spangled Banner is performed nicely by local a capella group, Vision Male Vocal Ensemble. Orioles fans make their presence known at the appropriate moment. Pregame ceremony: Former Detroit infielder Placido Polanco throws out the ceremonial first pitch, and the Tigers run a cool video tribute to the great stars of their storied history.

Comebacks and eighth innings aside, one of the most pleasing sights in the first two games of the American League Division Series has to be that the Orioles' stellar defense is back. Orioles manager Buck Showalter makes it clear that it's your glove that moves you up through the minor league system and it's defense that keeps you in the majors. He uses Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty as examples that the Orioles are willing to let players work through their offensive struggles as long as they are sound defensively.

National anthem: Soprano Chelsea Buyalos provided the second straight operatic anthem of the postseason. Ceremonial first pitch: Orioles vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson, an American League Division Series hero in his playing career, threw the ceremonial first ball Friday. First pitch: Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen threw a strike to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler at 12:08 p.m., one minute after the scheduled start time. It was 66 degrees and cloudy.

The Orioles will only have two lefties in their bullpen for the American League Division Series that starts tonight at 5:37 p.m. against the Detroit Tigers, and Ubaldo Jimenez is a surprise addition to the roster. The Tigers don't have many left-handed bench options, so Orioles manager Buck Showalter apparently felt he'd rather have an extra right-hander that can provide some length in Jimenez. Infielder Jimmy Paredes made the cut. Outfielder/baserunning specialist Quintin Berry didn't.

Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers are in a 1-0 hole to the Orioles in the American League Division Series partly because the 2013 Cy Young Award winner spent the first two innings trying to avoid one on the mound. Scherzer and Orioles starter Chris Tillman began their windups in a similar spot early in the game, the Tigers starter said, creating a hole in the dirt near the pitching rubber. Scherzer compensated by taking a wider step off the rubber to start his motion, which threw his deliver out of whack and allowed the Orioles to pick up five of the seven hits they got off Scherzer - and three crucial early runs - before he adjusted.

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.

We are going to get the bar going a lot in the next few weeks. There will be lots of things to discuss. Lots of predictions for you to share. Much has been made about what the Orioles' roster for the American League Division Series will look like. I'd imagine we'll know at some point today, though Buck Showalter doesn't have to submit it until Thursday morning. Honestly, I think it's pretty set. To me there are only two spots that are unclear. That's because I believe Kelly Johnson, T.J. McFarland and David Lough are going to make the roster.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series. It had been a 12-day wait since the Orioles clinched the AL East. But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.
