Jonathan Schoop indicated Friday that he's been working hard this offseason to cut his weight in order to be lighter and faster for the upcoming season.
The 23-year-old infielder ended the 2014 campaign at 228 pounds and would like to get that number down around 215-220 prior to spring training. The goal is to add quickness and range on defense while providing more speed on the basepaths. While he hit just .209/.244/.354 last season, he did manage to club 16 homers and is the favorite to start the season as the O's primary second baseman. Jan 31 - 8:47 AM

Jonathan Schoop homered Sunday for the Orioles' only run in the win over the Blue Jays.

This can't hurt Schoop's stock headed into the postseason. He's found himself on the bench more frequently of late, and while he did start all three games against the Jays, he was removed for a pinch-hitter after two at-bats Saturday. Schoop ends the regular season with a .209/.244/.354 line and 16 homers in 455 at-bats. He'll probably be in there for Game 1 against the Tigers, but it's not a given.

Jonathan Schoop is not in the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

Schoop has been scuffling at the plate recently, with just one hit and 11 strikeouts in his last 28 at-bats (.036). Ryan Flaherty will draw the start in his place at second base.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and three RBI versus the Reds on Wednesday.

Schoop's strikeout-to-walk ratio leaves a lot to be desired and then some, but he's hit .250 with six homers and 15 RBI in 27 games since the beginning of July. Of course, even during that span, he has a 24/3 K/BB.

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-4 with an RBI double Friday against the Twins.

Schoop has shown some pop this season, with 12 homers and 16 doubles over 111 games, but he has been among the game's least productive regulars. With just 10 walks on the year, his .251 on-base percentage is the lowest among players with at least 350 plate appearances. Meanwhile, his .608 OPS is tied for 11th-lowest.

Jonathan Schoop hit a game-tying solo home run in the eighth-inning, allowing the Orioles to come back and win late against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Schoop took reliever Dellin Betances out to left field with one out in the eighth, knotting the game at 2-2. Shortly thereafter, Adam Jones untied the game with a three-run blast. Schoop has 11 home runs and 32 RBI on the season along with a meager .217/.255/.349 slash line.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer Monday against the Yankees.

The eighth-inning homer was pretty meaningless, but those who have patiently held on to him in fantasy leagues will take it. He has four homers in 57 at-bats since the All-Star break after hitting six in 272 at-bats previously. He's still not hitting for average and his .255 OBP is a major disaster, but at least he's doing something for his owners now.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

The blast was Schoop's eighth of the year and put him up to 26 RBI. Despite the homer, the second baseman is batting just .220/.256/.338 this season and doesn't merit serious fantasy consideration.

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 and drove home a run in Sunday's victory over the Yankees.

Schoop plated J.J. Hardy as part of a three-run uprising off Chase Whitley in the fourth inning. He has struggled at the dish through the first half of the season, slashing just .221/.259/.324 with six homers and 22 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop hit a solo home run and drove in two runs in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Schoop connected on a Masahiro Tanaka pitch for his sixth homer of the season. He added another RBI with an RBI groundout. The infielder has some pop but is hitting just .222/.270/.347 and can be disregarded outside of deep AL-only leagues.
Sun, Jun 22, 2014 06:39:00 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo homers Monday against the Brewers.

It was the first multi-homer game of his young career. With a 38/4 K/BB ratio through 43 games, Schoop's plate discipline is a work in progress, but he has some pop in his bat. He's still just 22, so there's time for him to figure it out.

Jonathan Schoop (finger) is not in Thursday's lineup against the Royals.

Schoop suffered a split fingernail on Wednesday and has his right index finger wrapped. While he's not starting Thursday, he has no problems swinging the bat and expects to be available off the bench.
Thu, May 15, 2014 04:45:00 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Schoop's second homer of the season was a solo shot off of Drew Hutchison in the fifth inning. The 22-year-old has looked overmatched in the early going, but his two-hit game on Wednesday and his homer on Thursday could be signs that he's starting to figure it out.
Thu, Apr 24, 2014 10:19:00 PM

Jonathan Schoop was 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox.

The four hits were a career-high and included a pair of RBI doubles. The big night pulled his batting average up from .244 to .304. The 22-year-old has swung the bat better in recent days, so he's making a case to stick around even after Manny Machado (knee) comes off the disabled list.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer Wednesday as the Orioles topped the Yankees 5-4.

Schoop's blast to left field accounted for all of the damage in seven innings against Masahiro Tanaka. He also had a single as part of the two-run ninth-inning rally that put the Orioles back ahead. The homer was Schoop's first of this year and second in 44 major league at-bats. We're not impressed with his 11/0 K/BB ratio in 30 at-bats this season, but the power is legit and he's made some nice plays. There's a chance he'll stick around after Manny Machado returns.
