Tigers' Jonathan Schoop exits with wrist contusion after being hit by pitch

DETROIT -- The Tigers appeared to dodge a potential problem after second baseman Jonathan Schoop was hit on the right wrist by a pitch during Tuesday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Schoop departed in the fourth inning with a right wrist contusion following the pitch from Adrian Houser.

Manager Ron Gardenhire said after the game Schoop was OK. He is expected to play Wednesday.

Schoop has been a significant contributor after the Tigers acquired him in the offseason.

He's hitting .295 with a team-high eight home runs for Detroit, which has worked its way into contention for a spot in the expanded postseason.

The Tigers broke open Tuesday's game with five runs in the fifth inning en route to an 8-3 victory over the Brewers.
