Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-5 with a two-RBI double in Thursday's win over the Yankees.
The contest was pretty nip-and-tuck for a while before Schoop plated a pair of runs with a two-bagger off of CC Sabathia in the seventh inning. Schoop entered the game with back-to-back hitless contests, which was remarkably the first time that had happened since May 17-18. The plate discipline obviously still needs plenty of work, but Schoop is having a breakout season with a .296/.328/.510 batting line and 16 homers. Jul 21 - 4:23 PM

Jonathan Schoop ripped a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Schoop's dinger off of Ivan Nova in the top of the third inning knotted things up at 1-1, but the Yankees answered back with another run in the bottom of the frame and that's all they needed. It's been an unbelievable run for Schoop, who is batting .388 with six homers and 16 RBI over his last 25 games.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI single to lead the Orioles to a comeback, 3-2 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Schoop was instrumental in the comeback, scoring on a balk to tie the game in the seventh inning before delivering the go-ahead hit in the eighth. The multi-hit game was the fourth for Schoop during his eight-game hitting streak, raising his overall line to .304/.339/.512. Those who had faith in the 24-year-old coming into the season have been handsomely rewarded in the first half.
Jul 9 - 8:31 PM

Jonathan Schoop doubled twice, walked and scored three times Wednesday against the Padres.

Not only is Schoop hitting, but he even has seven walks this month. He had five in the first two months combined. With the Orioles offense red-hot, Schoop has scored 18 runs in his last 11 games.
Jun 29 - 7:34 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday’s win over the Rays.

Schoop is now batting .483 (14-for-29) with two home runs, three doubles, five RBI, and 12 runs scored over his last seven games. He has pulled his batting average up from .264 to .287 in the process.
Jun 25 - 4:28 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 plus a walk, drove in a run and scored a run on Wednesday.

Schoop is quietly having a semi-breakout season at the age of 24. Largely written off after his extremely poor 2014 season, Schoop has been very good ever since. He is now hitting .285 with 12 home runs, 35 runs and 42 RBI on the season.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored Saturday in the Orioles' 4-2 defeat of the Blue Jays.

Schoop doubled and scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning and slugged a solo homer off R.A. Dickey in the bottom of the third. He also had a single. The second baseman has been a useful fantasy commodity all season, now with a .778 OPS, 11 home runs, 38 RBI, and 29 runs scored in 67 games.
Jun 18 - 6:53 PM

Jonathan Schoop had an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Schoop had a slow start to the year, but the second baseman hit .298/.308/.481 in May and is now batting .283 with nine RBI and seven runs scored in June. He's best known for his power -- Schoop has 10 home runs in 65 games this year -- but his .268/.298/.464 line overall is serviceable as well.
Jun 16 - 11:30 PM

Jonathan Schoop crushed his eighth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Angels on Sunday.

Aside from Schoop's two-run blast in the seventh inning, the O's were held completely in check by Jered Weaver and his lack of velocity. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .270/.297/.493 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.
May 22 - 8:24 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with two home runs and five RBI as the Orioles defeated the Tigers 9-3 on Saturday.

Schoop hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to chase starter Anibal Sanchez and connected for a grand slam in the eighth to put the game out of reach. The two-homer game was his second of the season, giving him seven homers and 20 RBI overall. He'll never be a strong source of batting average or on-base percentage, but the 24-year-old can sure mash from the second base position.
May 14 - 10:19 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with three RBI, including a game-winning, two-run triple, to lead the Orioles past the Tigers 7-5 on Thursday.

Schoop had an RBI single in the sixth inning before stepping to the plate with two on in a tie game in the seventh. His two-run triple -- his first three-bagger of the year -- broke the tie and was eventually the deciding hit in the game. Schoop has hit better lately after a late April lull, as he's now 13-for-40 (.325) in May. The second baseman is batting .254/.279/.449 with five homers, 15 RBI and 12 runs scored in all.
May 13 - 12:59 AM

After optioning Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk, Jonathan Schoop is now the only second baseman on the Orioles' roster.

The Orioles can recall Flaherty in nine days, but in the meantime, an injury to Schoop would create serious depth issues at second base. Jimmy Paredes (wrist) has experience at second, but he won't be an option for a few days after beginning a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie. In the event of a Schoop injury, J.J. Hardy would likely shift to second base with Manny Machado handling shortstop. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez would be candidates to fill in for Machado at third base.

Jonathan Schoop clubbed a pair of home runs as the Orioles routed the Rangers on Friday night in Arlington.

Schoop also singled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4 with three RBI. He tagged Scott Wilhelmsen for a two-run shot in the seventh inning, tying the game at 5-5. He then added on an insurance run with a solo blast leading off the eighth inning against Andrew Faulkner. Schoop has come out of the gate hitting, slashing .314/.351/.686 with three homers and eight RBI.
Apr 15 - 11:26 PM

Jonathan Schoop socked his first home run of the season Friday against the Rays.

It was one of four solo home runs for the Orioles on the night. Schoop is prone to the strikeout and never walks, but he offers tantalizing power from the second base position. The 24-year-old hit 15 home runs in just 86 games last season. It would help if he had a more prominent place in the Orioles' lineup, but a change isn't likely imminent unless he forces his way into the conversation.
Apr 8 - 10:06 PM

Jonathan Schoop homered from the ninth spot in the order for the Orioles on Wednesday.

It was interesting to see Schoop batting behind Nolan Reimold and J.J. Hardy when expectations seem higher for him this year, but it wouldn't be a disaster if he started off hitting ninth. He's a reasonable candidate to lead all second basemen in homers this year, though that still might not make him an elite fantasy option because of the likely mediocre average and low steal total.
