While the Orioles' second-ranked prospect, Kevin Gausman, will be making his debut Thursday, their No. 3 prospect looks like he'll be shelved for a lengthy period of time. Infielder Jonathan Schoop has been dealing with a lower back issue, and it has been diagnosed as a potential stress fracture, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. “It sounds like he has a stress fracture in the low back,” Duquette said. “And he will need a period of rest, probably 6 to 8 weeks of rest.” At Schoop's request, he'll be getting a second opinion next week in California from Dr. Robert Watkins, a spine surgeon.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When infielder Jonathan Schoop won the Orioles' Minor League Player of the Year award in September 2011, he traveled to Camden Yards to accept the honor. The shy, skinny Curacao native, then 19 years old, couldn't have looked more uncomfortable on the field that day, tentatively shaking hands with staff and players while giving barely audible answers to reporters in a language that he was still learning. There was a common sentiment within the media: This is the kid who beat out top prospect Manny Machado for an award that bears the name of Hall of Famer?

Departing Maryland center Alex Len underwent surgery for a partial stress fracture in his left ankle that was diagnosed after he declared for the NBA draft, according to his agent. The injury -- and subsequent surgery performed by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. -- will complicate NBA teams' efforts to evaluate the 7-footer before the June 27 draft. The surgery "will keep Len out of basketball for four-to-six months,  and the player will miss activities leading up to the draft," said a release by Sports International Group Inc., of Gaithersburg.

University of Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams extended a dubious streak yesterday when it was determined that freshman forward Nemanja Petrovic had sustained a stress fracture of the right leg. He originally was thought to have shin splints, but a bone scan showed the fracture.It marks the fourth straight year that Williams has lost a player because of a serious leg injury. Senior Kevin McLinton suffered a similar injury as a freshman. Walt Williams broke his leg two years ago and Garfield Smith sustained a season-ending fracture.

A nuclear scan helped doctors diagnose Animal Kingdom with the start of a stress fracture in his hind end. The injury won't require surgery, and the Kentucky Derby winner could return to full training after 30 days of rest and 60 days of light work. But his connections also raised the possibility of retirement so that the colt could be put out to stud. "Team Valor's interest is to run the horse for another year," Team Valor International CEO Barry Irwin said in a statement.

"To find Monica, of course," he said.Monica Seles, once the No. 1 women's seed at Wimbledon, has still not surfaced. She and her family remain silent on the cause of the injury that caused Seles abruptly to pull out of Wimbledon on Friday, three days before the tournament was to begin.But reports that Seles has suffered a stress fracture related to the shin splints that pained her even as she won the French Open three weeks ago seemed to take on more credence yesterday.

Runners often develop tiny cracks, called stress fractures, in the bones of their feet. The vast majority of these stress fractures are treated by simply stopping one's running until the bone has healed.However, a stress fracture in the bones behind the small toe near the ankle may never heal without more aggressive treatment.Here's how a stress fracture can creep up on you. One day, near the end of a long run, you may feel a mild discomfort in your foot. The pain disappears as soon as you stop running.

Didn't anyone think the Kings were overdue for bad news?Right on schedule, here comes Walt Williams, out four or five weeks with a stress fracture in his lower left leg. Chalk it up to Kings Luck.

As the pain in his left arm became worse, Orioles pitcher Adam Loewen knew something wasn't right. He just had no idea how much of his season would be lost. Perhaps all of it. A bone scan taken yesterday morning confirmed that Loewen has a stress fracture in his left elbow, an injury that will require a minimum of eight weeks' rest before he can begin a throwing program. The Orioles placed him on the disabled list yesterday (retroactive to Wednesday), purchased reliever Todd Williams' contract from Triple-A Norfolk and tried to weather the latest blow to their starting rotation.

Alex Len, the former Maryland center who was drafted fifth overall by the Phoenix Suns last month, underwent surgery on his right ankle Monday. "As a precautionary measure, our medical staff determined that it would be prudent to perform surgery on Alex Len's right ankle at this time," Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said last week. "As part of a routine evaluation, our medical team identified the very beginnings of a stress fracture in Alex's right ankle even though Alex was entirely asymptomatic.

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.

In Mike Lelchitski's office at Sports International Group, Inc., the company his father, Boris, founded more than a decade ago after emigrating to the United States from Russia, there is a framed panoramic shot of Comcast Center from the first men's basketball game played there in 2002. Lelchitski said he was in the sellout crowd that day, coming down from the Hagerstown boarding school he was attending. Long before Alex Len surfaced in College Park less than two years ago, Lelchitski was a Maryland fan. A little more than a decade later, the now 28-year-old is Len's agent.

Shirtless, John Wall crouched and dribbled a basketball above his head with his right hand and another low to the ground with his left hand. Unable to keep the routine together as he reached half-court, Wall grunted as he lost control, started over, and tried the exercise once again. With Washington Wizards assistant coach Ryan Saunders looking on, Wall has concluded nearly every practice with ballhandling drills, something he had never done before a stress injury to his left knee produced his longest absence from playing the game he loves dearly.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Orioles center fielder Luis Matos said yesterday that he may be feeling the effects of the mild stress fracture in his right shin for a month or two, but he has never looked healthier. Matos started his third consecutive game and went 2-for-4 to raise his spring batting average to .400 and take a load off the minds of everyone in the Orioles' front office. "The kid's a quality player, all around," said manager Lee Mazzilli. "He won't play tomorrow, but that's just because it's time for a rest."

Declan's Moon, the undefeated Maryland-bred seen as a potential boost to state racing if not racing nationwide, has suffered an injury that will sideline him until at least the fall. The leading contender for the Kentucky Derby, Declan's Moon injured his left front leg while winning the Santa Catalina Stakes last weekend at Santa Anita Park, said Ron Ellis, his trainer. The 3-year-old gelding suffered a small stress fracture of the radius bone just above the knee, the trainer said. Based at Hollywood Park in Southern California, Ellis said that three veterinarians had examined the horse and studied X-rays of the injury.

One of the top cross country runners in Howard County a year ago, Mount Hebron's Zach Weinstein got a major scare over the summer when a stress fracture in his left leg threatened to keep him on the sideline. After taking several weeks off, however, the senior is back on the course, hoping to build toward another successful postseason. A year ago, he finished eighth in the county and fourth in the Class 2A South regional before taking eighth at the Class 2A state meet. Weinstein talked about the injury, the challenge of coming back and his plans for the future in a recent interview.
