BALTIMORE –- Michael Morse’s tenure with the Orioles has been a disappointing one, and it now may be at an end due to a left wrist injury.

Morse, who hasn’t played since Sunday, will see hand specialist Dr. Brian Schofield in Sarasota, Fla. He’ll then head to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to see if he needs surgery.

Since his acquisition by the Orioles on Aug. 31, Morse was 3-for-29. He is 0-for-24, and did not have a hit in 14 at-bats at home.

Manager Buck Showalter said that Morse has been hurting for several days.

Jonathan Schoop is also out with back soreness. Schoop had surgery for a stress fracture in his back earlier this season, and hurt it in a rundown on Friday.

“He felt OK during the game, but he came in today pretty sore,” Showalter said.

Schoop is scheduled to go to the Arizona Fall League next month if he’s physically able.

Manny Machado will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday for a second opinion on his right knee.

Alexi Casilla (thumb, head) and Chris Dickerson (hamstring) are also unavailable this weekend.
