Jonathan Schoop, who ended his 2015 season with a right hand injury, said Saturday that he's 100 percent healthy and has been participating in his regular offseason workouts.
The 24-year-old infielder burst onto the scene in 2015, slashing .279/.306/.482 with 15 homers and 39 RBI in 305 at-bats for the O's. He should be locked in as the team's starting second baseman heading into 2016 and possesses intriguing fantasy potential for a middle infielder that can be had in the middle rounds of drafts.

Jonathan Schoop is set to have another X-ray of his injured hand on Saturday as he continues to deal with swelling.

While the first X-ray didn't find a fracture, Schoop is still in quite a bit of pain and the swelling hasn't subsided as anticipated. There's a good chance that his season is over.

Jonathan Schoop (hand) is not in the Orioles starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Jonathan Schoop exited Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with a right hand contusion.

Schoop was hit in the hand with a pitch in the first inning and Paul Janish replaced him at second base after a lengthy rain delay. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day.

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday afternoon's win over the Nationals.

Schoop went yaya off Nationals starter Tanner Roark in the fourth inning, scoring Matt Wieters on the two-run shot. It would be his only hit of the game. Over 284 at-bats, the 23-year-old second baseman is slashing a strong .278/.305/.486 with 15 homers and 39 RBI. If he can stay healthy next season, we like those numbers to improve.

Jonathan Schoop blasted a pair of solo home runs on Sunday night as the Orioles dispatched of the Royals 8-2 in Baltimore.

Schoop took Royals ace Johnny Cueto deep to left-center for a solo shot in the second inning, then belted another one out to center in the fourth. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-4.

Jonathan Schoop had a night he'd like to forget in Friday's loss to the Rangers, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.

Schoop was completely owned three times by Cole Hamels, then whiffed against closer Shawn Tolleson in the ninth. Picking up the golden sombrero was a rare off night in what has been a terrific season thus far for the O's second baseman. Even with the 0-for-4, he's hitting .293/.322/.505 with 10 homers and 30 RBI.

Schoop broke through with an RBI single off Twins starter Mike Pelfrey in the third inning. He burned Pelfrey again in the fifth, this time with a two-run single. At just 23-year-old, the second baseman has impressed with a .296/.328/.509 triple-slash, nine homers and 27 RBI over 169 at-bats. That production makes him a solid option for mixed league play at this point.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Angels on Friday.

Schoop has an extra-base hit in four straight games, and he's now sporting an OPS over .900 in his 111 at-bats. He'll probably never draw walks, but with his power and plus defense at second, he could be a very good regular for a long time. He's not a bad choice in mixed leagues right now.

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Orioles narrowly defeated the Braves on Wednesday.
