Orioles will wait another day on Adam Jones

BALTIMORE –- Adam Jones is out of the Orioles lineup for the eighth time in the last 10 games. Manager Buck Showalter says that he believes Jones is nearing the time when he’s ready to play.

He suffered a bruised shoulder on June 15, and played two games as the designated hitter last weekend.

Jones threw before the game for the first time since last weekend. Manager Buck Showalter said Jones felt good.

“See how he feels tomorrow, and if he doesn’t have the soreness he experienced the last time, he’ll be ready to go very shortly,” Showalter said.

“It’s kind of a process we have to go with him. He’s worth waiting on.”

If Jones went on the disabled list, it would be retroactive to Sunday, and he’d be eligible to play on July 6.

“If he comes in and he’s not as good as he was today or better, if he’s sore from what he did today, we’d DL him, but I like where we were today with him,” Showalter said. “You don’t want to DL him and two days from now, he’s ready to go. He means a lot to us.”

Jonathan Schoop was headed to Bowie to play for the Baysox on Friday night. Bowie begins a road trip on Saturday, but Schoop won’t be on it.

Schoop worked out on the field about four hours before game time with vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson, and Anderson told Showalter that the tentative plan is for Schoop to spend a few days with the Orioles before activation.

“If [Jones] does have soreness, you could think about using his DL, for potentially Jonathan,” Showalter said.

Schoop says the rehab is going well, and he’s ready to play. He’s batting .273 with three home runs and six RBIs in six games with the Baysox.

“Today is my last game. Brady told me, and the next step after the game is to sit and talk and see what the next plan is,” Schoop said.

NOTES: The Orioles are nearing an agreement with first round draft choice DJ Stewart, according to an industry source. … Kevin Gausman was scratched from his start at Norfolk on Friday in case he’s needed to pitch on Sunday in the event of a makeup doubleheader. Rain is forecast for Saturday. … Bowie right-handed pitcher Dennis Torres was suspended for 50 games for use of a drug of abuse. … Steve Pearce was selected as the Fan’s Choice Bobblehead. The bobblehead will be disributed on Oct. 4. … Norfolk reliever Dane De La Rosa, who had struggled after knee surgery, has retired.

Orioles Roundup: O's acquire Keon Broxton from Mets

The Orioles made a flurry of moves before falling to the Yankees 7-5 Wednesday night.

Here is your latest news on Baltimore and New York:

Player Notes:

ORIOLES:

Baltimore acquired OF Keon Broxton from the Mets for international signing bonus slots. Broxton hit .143 in 34 games with New York this season before he was designated for assignment last week. The Orioles designated RHP Yefry Rodriguez for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Broxton. 

The Orioles transferred RHP Alex Cobb from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL, meaning he won't be back until late June at the earliest. Cobb has been out since April 27 with a lumbar strain. Baltimore also claimed RHP Chandler Shepherd off waivers for the Cubs and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. 

YANKEES:

Giancarlo Stanton has been pulled away from his rehab assignment with High-A Tampa and placed back on the 10-day injured list with left calf tightness. Per manager Aaron Boone, Stanton will be shut down for the next 7-10 days. 

Boone also told reporters Zach Britton was unavailable for Wednesday's game against his former team, and CC Sabathia could miss his next start due to knee trouble.
