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. Apr 19 - 12:00 AM

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.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Jonathan Schoop will make the Orioles' Opening Day roster.

The plan is for Schoop to share time at second base with Steve Lombardozzi and at third base with Ryan Flaherty until Manny Machado (knee) returns. He wouldn't be guaranteed a job once Machado is ready, but the top prospect could play his way into a regular role over the long haul. Schoop is a nice late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty both hit homers against the Pirates in Sunday's tie.

Flaherty's was probably a little move impressive, coming off Gerrit Cole. Schoop hit his in the ninth off Jay Jackson. The Orioles could start both players on Opening Day, with Schoop playing second and Flaherty at third. Schoop wouldn't necessarily be guaranteed anything after Manny Machado returns, but his stock has been climbing.
Mar 23 - 4:44 PM

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that Jonathan Schoop "seems to be winning" the Orioles' second base competition over Jemile Weeks.

Ryan Flaherty will handle second base when Manny Machado (knee) is ready, but he'll slide over the third base with Machado likely headed for the DL to start the season. One of the Orioles' top prospects, Schoop has crushed Grapefruit League pitching to the tune of a .423/.448/.692 batting line with four doubles and a homer. The 22-year-old needs to be owned in deeper fantasy leagues.
Mar 16 - 9:25 AM

Jonathan Schoop has turned heads with a 9-for-17 (.529) start in Grapefruit League play and is considered a live 'dog in Baltimore's open second base competition.

Included in the tally above is four extra-base hits and five RBIs. It's the type of performance the 22-year-old needed in an attempt to leapfrog Ryan Flaherty and Jemile Weeks for the second-base gig, which his skipper acknowledged when asked if Schoop's performance would make his Opening Day lineup decision more difficult. "Might be continuing to make an easy decision," said Buck Showalter, who reminded assembled media that all three still have options remaining. "There's a lot of ways to look at that. I told you before, we came in here with that completely wide open there. Still is."

Jonathan Schoop homered in his lone at-bat off the bench against the Phillies on Friday.

Schoop is 5-for-9 with a couple of doubles this spring. It's going to be tough for him to maintain his 1.000 BABIP going forward (he's struck out in his other four at-bats), but he's making an early change for the starting job at second base.
Mar 7 - 5:33 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Jonathan Schoop is "very much in the mix" for the starting second baseman job.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said over the winter that Schoop was likely to spend more time in the minors, but Showalter said nothing is set in stone in regard to his role. Ryan Flaherty should still be considered the front-runner, but Schoop could change that with a big spring.
Mar 3 - 4:35 PM

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Sunday that while Jonathan Schoop is an option at second base, that he is likely to begin the season at Triple-A.

Duquette explained, "He probably could benefit from more experience before he's called on to be an everyday player in the big leagues." The 22-year-old slashed .278/.330/.460 with 14 homers and 52 RBI in 81 minor league games in 2013. He's unlikely to garner enough playing time to become an impact fantasy contributor in 2014.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored in the Orioles' 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Making his major league debut, the 21-year-old didn't disappoint. He scored on Ryan Flaherty home runs in the third and eighth innings, and he also hit a homer of his own in the sixth. Owners in keeper or dynasty leagues shouldn't go crazy on one game, but the performance offered a glimpse of what he's capable of in the future. He'll be a name to watch as early as next season.

Jonathan Schoop will make his major league debut at second base Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

The O's were eliminated from the playoff race Tuesday, so they are ready to give Schoop a look. The 21-year-old batted .256/.301/.396 with nine home runs in 70 games this season in Triple-A.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 03:12:00 PM

Orioles recalled 2B Jonathan Schoop from Triple-A Norfolk.

Schoop will play behind Brian Roberts this season, but is the Orioles' second baseman of the future. He's fully recovered from a back injury that sidelined him through July and batted .256/.301/.396 with nine home runs at the Triple-A level.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 01:02:00 PM

The Orioles will call up infielder Jonathan Schoop, outfielder Henry Urrutia and right-hander Josh Stinson on Tuesday.

They'll join the Orioles now that Triple-A Norfolk has missed the playoffs. Urrutia and Stinson have already played with the big club this season, but Schoop will be getting his first taste of the majors.

Jonathan Schoop (back) went 4-for-5 with two home runs and seven RBI on Thursday in his final rehab game with Short-Season Aberdeen.

The 21-year-old infielder is ready to rejoin Triple-A Norfolk after missing over two months with a stress fracture in his back. Schoop tore the cover off the ball during his 11-game rehab assignment, batting .436 (17-for-39) with five home runs, 17 RBI and 7/7 K/BB. Prior to the injury, he was batting .268/.331/.386 with nine extra-base hits and 25/9 K/BB in 34 games for Norfolk. Even though he's missed significant time this year, Schoop could still find himself in the major leagues by the end of the season.

Jonathan Schoop (back) is scheduled to begin playing in rehab games on Thursday.

Schoop has been on the minor league disabled list since mid-May because of a stress fracture in his back. He'll get started at the Orioles' Gulf Coast League affiliate before eventually working his way back up to Norfolk. The 21-year-old infielder could reach the major league level at some point later this season.
