The Baltimore Orioles added a new arm to their rotation Saturday, but also lost a key member of their lineup to injury, placing Jonathan Schoop on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.
The Orioles had to make a move before the game so starting pitcher Alex Cobb could be officially recalled from Double-A Bowie to start.
Schoop suffered the injury last night during a swinging strikeout, and was removed from the game in the seventh inning.
The 26-year-old has one home run and three RBIs in 14 games this season after hitting 32 homers and driving in 105 runs in his first All-Star campaign last year. Tim Beckham has taken over at second on Saturday with Danny Valencia at third. With the timing of the contract, he was left off the Orioles' season-opening roster in order to further prep for the season. "It's honestly the most comfortable I've felt being in this locker room, somewhere I'm familiar with, in the clubhouse around guys that I know". Schoop's right oblique strain is the Grade 1 (least severe) variety, so the Orioles are optimistic his absence will be a short one.
Cobb signed with the O's as a free agent on a four-year deal in late March.
