The Baltimore Orioles placed second baseman Jonathan Schoop on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right side before Saturday's game against the Red Sox and activated starting pitcher Alex Cobb.
He played in the field in the bottom of the seventh, but the injury worsened on a throw to first, and he was replaced by Engelb Vielma.
Tim Beckham is Baltimore's starting second baseman today, with Danny Valencia stepping in to take Beckham's usual spot at third base. He exited the contest in the eighth inning after going 2-for-4 to improve his season average to.230 and received an MRI exam on Saturday morning. "I wish it wasn't for Jon". With the timing of the contract, he was left off the Orioles' season-opening roster in order to further prep for the season. Ruben Tejada and Luis Sardinas are veteran infield options both on the farm, while top prospect Ryan Mountcastle is himself on the minor league DL recovering from a fractured right hand.
Schoop hopes to return in the minimum 10 days from his Grade 1 oblique strain, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports. Over parts of six seasons in the majors, all of them coming with Tampa Bay, Cobb owns a 3.50 ERA (111 ERA+) across 115 starts.
