BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore Orioles outfielder Michael Morse has a wrist injury that might require surgery.

Manager Buck Showalter said Saturday that Morse has possible ligament damage and will visit Dr. Brian Schofield in Sarasota, Fla., and then the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for a second opinion.

Showalter said Morse informed the staff about the injury a few days ago. Morse has three hits in 29 at-bats since joining the Orioles in a trade with Seattle on Aug. 30.

Also, infielder Jonathan Schoop will be examined for a possible back injury after stepping awkwardly during a rundown in Friday night's loss to Boston. Schoop had a stress fracture in his lower back while in the minors this year. He has played in three games with the Orioles as a September call-up.
