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 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 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.

NEW YORK - Orioles third baseman Jonathan Schoop knows he will have his share of growing pains at the major league level, but as he struggled through the first five games of the season, one of his teammates noticed that something was amiss with the 22-year-old. Schoop, the club's top position player prospect, is an aggressive hitter at the plate. He jumps on mistakes and can send them into the seats. And that's why he's here in the majors -- because he showed that in spring training, when he hit .385 to earn one of the Orioles' final Opening Day roster spots.

BOSTON - Orioles rookie third baseman Jonathan Schoop is still trying to feel his way through his first real opportunity to contribute as a major leaguer. The organization's top position player prospect, Schoop has had his share of growing pains under a particularly bright spotlight as he's filled in at for injured Gold Glover Manny Machado. The 22-year-old didn't experience much pain on Friday. In the Orioles' first trip to Fenway Park this season, Schoop helped rally the Orioles to an 8-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox with his first career four-hit game in front of an announced crowd of 36,408.

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.

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.

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.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz, who was hit in the helmet by a pitch during Thursday's Grapefruit League finale and was forced out of the game, is feeling better today and will be ready for Opening Day on Monday. A precautionary CT scan performed Thursday night at a local hospital was negative and Cruz showed no symptoms of a concussion or any other head injury on Friday. Cruz is expected to start in left field on Opening Day on Monday and bat fifth against Boston Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester.

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.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman has had more success against the Red Sox than any other American League East opponent, so it's no wonder why manager Buck Showalter pushed him back to pitch tonight in the first game of this weekend's four-game series at Fenway Park. Tuesday's rainout provided the opportunity. Tillman, who celebrated his 26th birthday on Tuesday, is 4-2 with a 2.67 ERA in 12 career starts against the Red Sox, including an Opening Day no-decision against Boston on March 31. He is 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA in five career starts at Fenway Park.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has a "big day" scheduled today, according to manager Buck Showalter. He'll run sprints for the first time in Sarasota, Fla., as part of his rehabilitation from left knee surgery in October. The sense is that, if he rebounds from those sprints without any problems, the next step for Machado will be playing in games at extended spring training before an eventual minor league rehab assignment. There is no timetable for Machado's return, but I'd say we're looking at early- to mid-May before he is playing for the Orioles.

The Orioles open a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at Camden Yards. Rays right-hander Chris Archer will start, and Orioles left-handed hitters David Lough and Ryan Flaherty are in the lineup. Right-handed hitters Delmon Young and Jonathan Schoop aren't starting; otherwise, the lineup is pretty predictable. Here are both team's starting lineups: Orioles Nick Markakis RF Nelson Cruz DH Chris Davis 1B Adam Jones CF Matt Wieters C David Lough LF J.J. Hardy SS Steve Lombardozzi 2B Ryan Flaherty 3B Wei-Yin Chen LHP Rays Ben Zobrist 2B Desmond Jennings CF Logan Forsythe DH Evan Longoria 3B Wil Myers RF James Loney 1B Brandon Guyer LF Yunel Escobar SS Ryan Hanigan C Chris Archer RHP

J.J. Hardy said Friday that he absolutely, positively expected to be in Saturday's starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. He is. Hardy, who has played once since the third game of the season due to lower back spasms, is batting sixth and playing shortstop against the Jays. He hasn't played at all since last Saturday - a full week of rest. Also in the starting lineup is David Lough, who hasn't started a game since Monday in New York. He has been dealing with potential concussion symptoms that also cost him a week playing time in spring training.

Chris Tillman said things weren't working at all for him in the first part of Friday's 2-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said it was clear Tillman didn't have his best stuff, but battled through. And that's why Tillman's presence on the Orioles is so important. His subpar performance resulted in a three-hit, eight-inning outing in which he fanned six batters and the only two runs he allowed were unearned. “We've seen him pitch better than that.

Chris Tillman battled through the early innings of his outing Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. In his mind, he wasn't carrying his best stuff, so he huddled with catcher Matt Wieters between innings to figure out how to maneuver through a dangerous Toronto lineup. The results were worthy of a win. Tillman held Toronto to two unearned runs and three hits over eight innings. But despite another spectacular start, Tillman was a tough-luck loser in the Orioles' 2-0 loss because of some rare fielding miscues behind him. An Orioles team that committed the fewest errors (54)

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.

NEW YORK -- Much of the attention heading into the Orioles' series finale against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night shined squarely on Japanese sensation Masahiro Tanaka making his first start in pinstripes at Yankee Stadium, but the Orioles managed to steal the New York spotlight with a late-inning rally fitting of a Broadway crescendo. The Orioles broke open a tie game with two runs in the ninth inning off Yankees interim closer Shawn Kelley - a rally fueled by the bottom of the lineup - to propel themselves to a 5-4 win in front of an announced crowd of 39,412.
