"Not necessarily, we still have days there [on his rehab]," manager Buck Showlater said when asked if Schoop would be added on Monday. "It depends on other things that go on today. I wouldn't say it's a given."

The O's are in no rush to make a roster move, and they could send Schoop to Triple-A to continue his rehab assignment. Schoop has been sidelined since mid-April with a right knee injury, but has gotten favorable reports at Double-A Bowie and has been working with vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson.
