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.

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.

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.

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.

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. --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.

CLEVELAND -- Televisions in the Orioles' clubhouse have shown the Little League World Series recently, and the major leaguers have been paying attention. But no Orioles player may be more interested than 22-year-old second baseman Jonathan Schoop. This month marks the 10th anniversary of when Schoop's Pabao Little League club from his native Curacao beat Thousand Oaks, Calif., 5-2, to become the first Caribbean team to win the Little League World Series. Schoop picked up the save in that title game.

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.

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.

CHICAGO - A lot of the advanced defensive metrics don't reward Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis for the defender he is. His steadiness in the outfield sometimes make you take him for granted, especially given the way he expertly maneuvers around a tricky right field corner at Camden Yards. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said it often this year -- that Markakis is a player you likely won't fully appreciate until he's gone. And this could be his final year in an Orioles uniform.

CHICAGO - The Orioles can seal their ninth series win in their past 10 with a victory tonight against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The Orioles now have their best single-season road winning percentage since 1997, going 37-26 with a .587 winning percentage away from Camden Yards so far this season. They posted a .642 winning percentage in 1997, finishing with a 52-29 record on the road. The Orioles are 10-5 in their last 15 games on the road, and the pitching staff has a 2.42 ERA -- 2.91 ERA from the starters, 1.31 ERA from the bullpen -- over that span.

CLEVELAND -- Ever since the Orioles reached the postseason two years ago, they've made a point of not panicking when momentum appears to be slipping away. They just try and wait it out. So after running into a buzzsaw of quality pitching for the better part of three games against the Cleveland Indians, the Orioles' offense finally emerged Sunday afternoon in the later innings of a 4-1 victory at Progressive Field. The Orioles had scored just one run in 25 previous innings - and none in the last 17 - during the weekend series before they broke through for two runs in the sixth that ultimately saved them from bring swept for just the second time this year.

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.
