Playing for the first time in six days, Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Yankees on Saturday.
Schoop missed time after having his wisdom teeth removed Wednesday. He hasn't quite had a terrific spring, with his .268 average and his 10/1 K/BB ratio in 41 at-bats, but he's done enough to hold on to his starting job over Everth Cabrera. Mar 28 - 4:16 PM

Jonathan Schoop is unavailable Wednesday because he's having wisdom teeth removed.

The Orioles might give him a couple of days of rest, but he should be back to normal soon. The 23-year-old batted .209/.244/.354 with 16 home runs and 45 RBI across 137 games last season and should at least have a share of the starting second base job this season.

Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer off Ervin Santana as part of the Orioles' 3-2 win over a Twins split-squad on Wednesday.

Schoop is hitting .207/.207/.483 with two homers and nine strikeouts in 29 at-bats. With neither Everth Cabrera nor Ryan Flaherty stepping up, he remains the clear favorite to start at second base for Baltimore. The on-base skills aren't there, but he has power and defense working in his favor.

Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-3 with a strikeout on Sunday and is 1-for-9 to start the spring.

Schoop seemed likely to have second base all to himself this year, but the Everth Cabrera signing definitely gives him less margin for error. If Cabrera impresses this spring and Schoop struggles, then it's possible Schoop could start off in Triple-A, with Cabrera and Ryan Flaherty perhaps sharing time at second.

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.

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.
