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.

It would be easy enough to look at the way the Orioles have hung around the .500 mark through the first three weeks of the new season and wonder what might have been had Manny Machado been able to start the season on time and had J.J.Hardy not temporarily been reduced to a part-time player by back and hamstring problems. It also would be grossly unfair to the three players who have stepped into that breach. Jonathan Schoop might be getting more "seasoning" at Triple-A Norfolk now if Machado were playing every day at third base.

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 - Everything seemed to go the Orioles' way for 5 1/2 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But after an ESPN nationally broadcast returned from a commercial break for the bottom of the sixth, everything unraveled for the Orioles. They lost a five-run lead and Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy to injury. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez lost his groove with one pitch that was sent into the Boston night, and the sure-handed Orioles defense committed three errors in the final three innings to set the stage for a walk-off loss, 6-5, to the Red Sox. “That's part of baseball,” Jimenez 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.

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.

BOSTON - With Manny Machado still recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee, Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop has filled in for him for much of the first three weeks of the season. Schoop had made 11 straight starts (out of 13 overall) at third base before Sunday night's game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. But Schoop competed for the second base job in spring training, and with Machado coming off a breakout season, Schoop's immediate future seems to be at second base.

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.

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.

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.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman has had more success against the Boston 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 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.

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

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.

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.

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 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)
