Jonathan Schoop, the starting second baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, has bursitis in his left elbow and is expected to miss some time, manager Buck Showalter said Friday.

Schoop, who agreed to an $8.5 million deal earlier this month to avoid arbitration, had his elbow drained and was scratched from Friday's spring-training opener. Showalter did not give a timeline for when Schoop would return, but he is classified as day to day and isn't expected to miss an extended amount of time.

Nonroster infielder Luis Sardinas started in Schoop's place. Engelb Vielma, who isn't in camp because of visa issues, is the only other infielder on the 40-man roster.
