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.
