Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s victory over the Rays.
Schoop’s sixth-inning blast provided a valuable insurance run for Baltimore. It has been a rough start to the year for the 26-year-old. In addition to missing time with an oblique injury, he’s batting just .242/.273/.402 with five homers through 31 games. On the bright side, he has two multi-hit games in his last three. His plate discipline has regressed so far this year, but things should get better from here. May 25 - 10:38 PM

Jonathan Schoop clobbered his fourth home run as the Orioles defeated the Red Sox 7-4 on Friday night in Boston.

Schoop launched his solo homer off of Steven Wright in the seventh inning, increasing the Orioles' lead to 6-3. He also drew a pair of walks in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He has picked up the pace offensively since returning from the disabled list and is now slashing .243/.284/.417 with four homers and 13 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop mashed a pair of home runs to spearhead a 6-3 win over the Rays on Saturday.

Both were solo dongs and both came off Rays' starter Chris Archer. Schoop had just one homer all year prior to today -- quite a surprise considering he went deep 32 times a year ago. Perhaps this is the start of a hot streak. He has a .250 batting average with nine RBI and 12 runs scored. He recently returned from a three-week stint on the disabled list with an oblique strain.
May 12 - 6:44 PM

Orioles activated 2B Jonathan Schoop from the 10-day disabled list.

Schoop is starting at second base and batting cleanup for the Orioles on Tuesday night against the Royals after missing over three weeks of action with a Grade 1 oblique strain. He was off to a disappointing start at the plate this season, but the 26-year-old is fully capable of getting it going in a hurry.
May 8 - 4:04 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) could play the final two games of his minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Norfolk due to rain in the forecast for Double-A Bowie.

The Orioles are anxious to get Schoop back in the lineup as quickly as possible, so they need him to get a few games under his belt in the minors first. He's currently on track for a return on May 8.
May 4 - 8:53 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) is slated to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on May 4.

The Orioles initially said it would be the middle of next week, but he will play in extended spring games first. Schoop said his oblique has been pain-free for a week and he thinks he'll need three rehab games before being activated. That would appear to line him up for a return on May 8.
Apr 27 - 4:06 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) could begin playing rehab games in the middle of next week.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said "If everything continues to progress... he'd probably play in a game in extended spring camp on Wednesday." Schoop feels he is ready to return to game action now but the team wants to hold him back to prevent a set-back. He has been on the disabled list since April 14th and is likely at least 10 days away from a return to the majors. Schoop had a .293 batting average with 32 homers and 105 RBI last year but was off to a slow start in 14 games this season before getting hurt.
Apr 26 - 7:18 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) hit off a tee, took grounders, and threw on Tuesday.

It sounds like he could return to the Orioles' active roster by this weekend. The power-hitting second baseman has been sidelined since April 14 because of a Grade 1 right oblique strain.
Apr 24 - 4:33 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) resumed baseball activities Monday.

Schoop obviously isn't going to be activated when first eligible Tuesday as he had originally hoped, but it's obviously a good sign that he's going through drills again. He will probably need some rehab at-bats before rejoining the Orioles' lineup.
Apr 23 - 4:48 PM

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) hopes to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on April 24.

Schoop's right oblique strain is the Grade 1 (least severe) variety, so the Orioles are optimistic his absence will be a short one. The O's will use Tim Beckham at second base and Danny Valencia at third while Schoop is out.
Apr 15 - 10:46 AM

An MRI on Jonathan Schoop revealed a Grade 1 oblique strain, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Saturday.

That's a silver lining for the O's, who placed Schoop on the 10-day disabled list Saturday. Schoop suffered the injury on a swing in Friday's game. Tim Beckham started at the keystone for the O's Saturday in Schoop's absence, and will likely get the bulk of the time there until the 26-year-old is ready to return.
Apr 14 - 4:47 PM

Orioles placed 2B Jonathan Schoop on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Schoop sustained the injury during a swing on Friday. The Orioles are hopeful that he'll require just a minimum stay on the disabled list, but oblique injuries are notoriously tricky and tend to linger.
Apr 14 - 12:05 PM

Jonathan Schoop is set to undergo an MRI exam on his injured oblique.

Schoop suffered the injury on a swing during Friday's game. As is often the case with the dreaded oblique injury, Schoop is probably looking at a trip to the disabled list. Look for an announcement prior to the start of Saturday's game.
Apr 14 - 11:39 AM

Jonathan Schoop (side) is not in the Orioles' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

Schoop was removed from Friday's game due to discomfort in his side and will get an extra day of rest as a precautionary measure. Tim Beckham will slide over and start at second base while Danny Valencia starts at the hot corner.
Apr 14 - 11:01 AM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles before leaving Friday's game with discomfort in his side.

Schoop made his exit in the eighth inning. It sounds precautionary more than anything else, but more should be known on Saturday. The 26-year-old is batting .230/.266/.344 over 14 games this season.
