Schoop update

Second baseman Jonathan Schoop continues to work out in Baltimore with the Orioles and will likely finish up his rehab assignment at nearby Class-A Frederick.

O’s manager Buck Showalter said Schoop will play “a couple days” for Frederick and probably won’t start that portion of his rehab until Thursday. Schoop has been sidelined since mid-April with a right knee injury and his pending return presents a bit of a roster crunch.

“He can be optioned to a lot of [affiliates] there for us,” Showalter said. “Jonathan will benefit from every day he can get, keeping that knee that much stronger, it’s a pretty significant injury. But we feel like Jon if we had to could be activated, but he’d also benefit from playing in the Minor Leagues.”
