BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Another Schoop might be joining the Orioles this week.

The Orioles have summoned Triple-A Norfolk infielder Sharlon Schoop to Baltimore in case they need him during the game on Tuesday while third baseman Manny Machado serves the last two games of his four-game suspension.

Sharlon Schoop is the older brother of Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop. He isn’t on the 40-man roster, but the Orioles are giving the Schoops a chance to play on the same major league team.

Schoop is batting .240/.284/.363 with six doubles, four home runs and 21 RBIs in 40 games.

The Orioles re-signed Schoop to a minor league deal in January.

The team is off Thursday, and Machado will return to the 25-man roster for Friday’s series opener against the Rays in Baltimore.
