Orioles' Jonathan Schoop gets Saturday off -- at least -- and other pregame updates

Second baseman Jonathan Schoop was wearing an ice pack on his right hand after being hit by a pitch during Friday night's game. X-rays showed no fracture, but he was replaced in Saturday night's starting lineup by Ryan Flaherty.

"He got a pretty good lick on the fatty part of the palm here," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said, pointing to the outside of his hand. "Probably going to try to stay away from him tonight. X-rays were fine."

Miley says he's OK: Starting pitcher Wade Miley had his left wrist and hand tightly wrapped Saturday, but said he is fine after the two line drives that knocked him out of Friday night's game in the first inning. He expects to make his next start and Showalter said that seems likely, but was noncommittal.

Ynoa headed to DL: Gabriel Ynoa, who bailed the club out after Miley left early Friday, is expected to go on the disabled list after suffering a hamstring cramp during his strong six-inning performance. He said he was fine after the game, but apparently wasn't when he woke up Saturday morning.

"His hamstring is pretty sore today," Showalter said. "He's obviously going to miss a start so we're contemplating whether to DL him or not. He was pretty sore today. A lot of times when a guy says that's a cramp, it's usually a precursor to something else. We'll see. It's pretty sore today."

O's acquire Kipper: The Orioles acquired yet another minor league pitcher, dealing right-hander Damien Magnifico to the Los Angeles Angels for right-hander Jordan Kipper.

Kipper, 24, had a 2-1 record and a 1.74 ERA in five starts for Double-A Mobile. He has been assigned to Triple-A Norfolk.
