Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-2 with a homer that accounted for the only run of the game in the Orioles' 1-0 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.
Schoop is the first Grapefruit Leaguer to five homers this spring, and he's hitting .331/.513/.941 in 34 at-bats. We're still curious to see where he'll bat, given that Manny Machado and Adam Jones seem locked into the third and fourth spots in the Orioles lineup. The cleanup spot would seem to make the most sense if Showalter is willing to budge. Mar 15 - 4:15 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk in the Orioles' 8-5 defeat of the Pirates on Monday.

Schoop was in the third spot in the order today with Manny Machado sitting, but he's mostly been hitting fifth this spring, which isn't great news for his fantasy value. The cleanup spot would seem to make the most sense for him if Buck Showalter wasn't Machado hitting third, but it looks Adam Jones will hit there initially. Schoop has done nothing to hurt his own cause this spring; he's 11-for-29 with three homers.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 and hit a three-run homer in a losing cause Monday against the Tigers.

Schoop hit sixth today after hitting second in his spring debut. He opened last year batting eighth before forcing his way into the heart of the order. It will be interesting to see what happens this year; manager Buck Showalter seems to be viewing Manny Machado as a No. 3 hitter, which could keep Schoop batting lower in the lineup.

Jonathan Schoop said that his elbow is feeling much better and he expects to rejoin the Orioles' lineup for Saturday's Grapefruit League contest.

Schoop was scratched from Friday's lineup after having to have his left elbow drained due to swelling. It's his non-throwing elbow, so this isn't expected to be a major issue going forward. Schoop remains one of the top second base targets in fantasy drafts after slashing a mighty .293/.338/.503 with 32 homers and 105 RBI in 2017.

Jonathan Schoop is dealing with bursitis in his left elbow.

Schoop banged the elbow on something and had to have it drained after it swelled up on him. He was scratched from Friday's lineup and the Orioles couldn't say for sure when he'll return to action, but it shouldn't be too long. It's the second baseman's non-throwing elbow.

Jonathan Schoop was scratched from the Orioles' Grapefruit League lineup Friday with a left elbow injury.

Schoop was icing the elbow before the game but said he was fine. He surely will be, but the O's decided it was best to give him some rest. Luis Sardinas replaced him in the lineup.

Orioles and 2B Jonathan Schoop avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.

Schoop requested $9 million and the Orioles offered $7.5 million, so this is somewhat of a compromise. The 26-year-old second baseman is coming off a strong 2017 campaign in which he hit 32 homers with 105 RBI while registering an .841 OPS. The next step for Baltimore could be trying to work out a long-term deal for Schoop, who is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2019 season.

Jonathan Schoop requested $9 million and was offered $7.5 million by the Orioles when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

The 26-year-old second baseman is in his second season of arbitration eligibility and is coming off of a monster year where he hit .293/.338/.503 with 32 homers and 105 RBI in 160 contests. He was projected by MLBTradeRumors to earn $9.1 million through arbitration.
Jan 13 - 7:26 AM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports the Orioles and Jonathan Schoop have begun extension talks.

Schoop is coming off the best season of his career, having hit .293/.338/.503 with 32 homers for Baltimore in 2017. Morosi notes that any extension would have to be north of the number Jean Segura got from Seattle, and that was a five-year, $70 million deal. With the improvement Schoop showed in plate discipline along with the fact he's just 26 years old, it wouldn't be a surprise if he becomes one of the highest paid second basemen in baseball.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-4 and scored two runs in a victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

One of the hits was a double, his 35th of the 2017 season. Baltimore isn't going to be playing in the postseason this year, but it's not because of Schoop. He now is hitting .299/.346/.516 on the season. If the approach takes another step forward, he might be in for an even bigger 2018 season.

Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-3 before being lifted from Wednesday's blowout loss to the Red Sox.

Schoop shouldn't have been expected to do much against Chris Sale tonight, but it's still worth noting how quiet he's been of late; he's hitting .231/.250/.346 in 19 games this month. He had 100 RBI through the end of August, but he's added just five more in September.

Jonathan Schoop slugged his 31st home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Schoop and teammate Manny Machado have been jockeying back-and-forth for the team in lead home runs. After Machado pulled ahead in the third inning with his 31st blast, Schoop matched him with a shot of his own in the fifth. Machado then went back ahead with a walk-off dinger in the ninth. Schoop keeps extending his career high in longballs, as his 31 are six more than he hit last year.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI as the Orioles defeated the Mariners 8-7 on Wednesday afternoon in Baltimore.

Schoop hit a solo blast off Mariners starter Ariel Miranda in the bottom of the fifth inning and he drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth. The 25-year-old second baseman is now batting .306/.353/.544 with 30 home runs and 99 RBI in 131 games this season for the Orioles, who have rattled off seven straight victories and are knocking on the door in the American League Wild Card race.

Jonathan Schoop smashed a home run and added a walk Tuesday versus the Mariners.

Schoop and Manny Machado entered the night tied for the team lead with 28 home runs, and Schoop moved ahead of him with a first-inning blast off of Erasmo Ramirez. Machado then leap-frogged him with a pair of late homers.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 and belted a solo homer in a win over the Red Sox.

He took reliever Brandon Workman deep in the eighth inning for his 28th longball of the campaign. The 25-year-old is in the midst of a breakout season and will blow away his career highs in just about every stat. He has a .307 batting average with 95 RBI and 79 runs scored in 127 games.
