Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle.
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.
Schoop himself has contributed to these struggles, posting just a.230/.266/.344 slash line and one home run over his first 65 plate appearances of this young season, though he is coming off a breakout 2017 campaign that saw him hit 32 homers and finish 12 in AL MVP voting. Cobb will start the game in his debut with the Orioles.
In that time, he has also developed into one of the best in the majors at his position. In April 2015, he injured his knee, also at Fenway Park, and missed nearly three months.
The Orioles announced the move before Saturday's game against the Red Sox and activated pitcher Alex Cobb in a corresponding move. "I wish it wasn't for Jon". 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.
Cobb signed with the O's as a free agent on a four-year deal in late March.
