Jonathan Schoop (knee) could resume baseball activities next week.

Schoop has been rehabbing at the Orioles' spring training complex and is nearly ready to take the next step. The 23-year-old hopes to be back by the All-Star break.

Jonathan Schoop is rehabbing his injured knee at extended spring training in Sarasota.

He has a brace that he's been wearing "24-7" and recently had fluid drained from his knee. Schoop's original timetable was 6-to-8 weeks but that's been pushed back because it took so long for the swelling to go down. He'll begin rehab work in the pool on Monday. The 23-year-old hopes to be back by the All-Star break.
May 2 - 6:57 PM

The Orioles are waiting for the swelling in Jonathan Schoop's knee to subside.

Schoop was fitted with a brace on Tuesday. The infielder is recovering from a Grade 1 PCL tear in his left knee. Once the swelling's completely gone, the Orioles should be able to re-evaluate him and set up a more concrete timetable for his recovery.

Jonathan Schoop (knee) was fitted with a brace on Tuesday.

It means the swelling in his knee is finally going down. Schoop is dealing with a Grade 1 PCL tear in his left knee and is looking at an extended absence.
Apr 22 - 8:54 AM

Orioles placed INF Jonathan Schoop on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 PCL tear in his left knee.

Schoop also has a sprained MCL. He sustained the injury in Friday's game from a hard slide by Pablo Sandoval at second base. The O's are encouraged that there was no damage to his ACL and are optimistic that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season. Ryan Flaherty and Everth Cabrera should both see regular playing time in Baltimore's middle infield for now.

Jonathan Schoop is heading to the disabled list after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 PCL tear and MCL sprain.

Schoop was the victim of a hard slide into second base by Pablo Sandoval during Friday's game and was spotted limping around the clubhouse on Saturday. It's a tough blow for the Orioles and for fantasy owners of the young infielder. O's manager Buck Showalter expects him to return before the end of the season, though there is no clear timetable at the moment.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk Wednesday as the Orioles beat the Yankees 7-5.

The walk was just his first, but that still puts him ahead of last year's pace (13 in 455 at-bats). The homer, on the other hand, was his third already. Schoop is a legitimate threat to lead all second basemen in homers this year. It still might not give him much mixed-league value, since his average will be problematic and he's a zero in steals, but it's hard not to like the pop.

Jonathan Schoop (quad) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in his return to the lineup Monday against the Yankees.

Schoop was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore left quad, but it doesn't appear to be a major concern. The 23-year-old is batting .278/.316/.667 with two homers and six RBI through six games this season.

Jonathan Schoop was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore left quad.

He's available off the bench and considered day-to-day. Ryan Flaherty is filling in for Schoop at second base.
Apr 12 - 12:02 PM

Playing for the first time in six days, Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Yankees on Saturday.

Schoop missed time after having his wisdom teeth removed Wednesday. He hasn't quite had a terrific spring, with his .268 average and his 10/1 K/BB ratio in 41 at-bats, but he's done enough to hold on to his starting job over Everth Cabrera.
Mar 28 - 4:16 PM

Jonathan Schoop is unavailable Wednesday because he's having wisdom teeth removed.

The Orioles might give him a couple of days of rest, but he should be back to normal soon. The 23-year-old batted .209/.244/.354 with 16 home runs and 45 RBI across 137 games last season and should at least have a share of the starting second base job this season.
Mar 25 - 11:06 AM

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer off Ervin Santana as part of the Orioles' 3-2 win over a Twins split-squad on Wednesday.

Schoop is hitting .207/.207/.483 with two homers and nine strikeouts in 29 at-bats. With neither Everth Cabrera nor Ryan Flaherty stepping up, he remains the clear favorite to start at second base for Baltimore. The on-base skills aren't there, but he has power and defense working in his favor.
Mar 18 - 4:42 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-3 with a strikeout on Sunday and is 1-for-9 to start the spring.

Schoop seemed likely to have second base all to himself this year, but the Everth Cabrera signing definitely gives him less margin for error. If Cabrera impresses this spring and Schoop struggles, then it's possible Schoop could start off in Triple-A, with Cabrera and Ryan Flaherty perhaps sharing time at second.
Mar 8 - 4:12 PM

Jonathan Schoop indicated Friday that he's been working hard this offseason to cut his weight in order to be lighter and faster for the upcoming season.

The 23-year-old infielder ended the 2014 campaign at 228 pounds and would like to get that number down around 215-220 prior to spring training. The goal is to add quickness and range on defense while providing more speed on the basepaths. While he hit just .209/.244/.354 last season, he did manage to club 16 homers and is the favorite to start the season as the O's primary second baseman.
