Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBI in Monday's defeat of the Rays.
Schoop slugged a solo homer off Chris Archer in the bottom of the sixth inning -- his fifth home run of 2017 -- before driving in Welington Castillo on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth. Schoop is sporting a cool .279/.324/.574 batting line through 18 games this season, after getting off to a sluggish start. He should remain a reliable source of power at the second base position.

Jonathan Schoop went deep Saturday in the Orioles' win over the Red Sox.

He powered a solo blast to left field off Steven Wright in the fourth inning. Schoop also added an infield single in the second. The 25-year-old has raked over his last 10 games, hitting .389 with four homers while raising his batting average from .105 to .291.

Jonathan Schoop hit his third home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Reds.

The homer, a solo shot off Reds starter Scott Feldman, was his only hit of the evening. Schoop has now hit safely in eight straight games. After a slow start, the 25-year-old is now hitting .280/.302/.520 with nine RBI and nine runs scored.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Schoop got the scoring started with his double in the fifth inning, and he scored what ended up being the game-winning run one batter later on a J.J. Hardy RBI single. Schoop actually finished with two doubles in the game, his first two doubles of the year. It's been a slow start to the year for the 25-year-old, who is now hitting .231/.286/.423 with one homer through eight games.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer of the year Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Schoop owners got a nasty surprise on Opening Day, when manager Buck Showalter opted to bat him eighth, rather than sixth as originally expected (he switched spots with Welington Castillo). Schoop had been 2-for-19 in six games entering this one. He's not an attractive mixed-league option while hitting eighth.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the Netherlands' World Baseball Classic loss to Japan on Sunday.

Schoop's blast in the second inning got the Netherlands on the board, and his two-out single in the bottom of the ninth knotted things up before Japan eventually won in the 11th. The Netherlands will next play Israel on Monday.

Orioles and 2B Jonathan Schoop avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.475 million contract.

The second baseman was eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter. Schoop put up a .267/.298/.454 batting line with a career-high 25 home runs for the Orioles last season.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a homer and matched a career-high with five RBI in Friday’s 8-1 victory over the Yankees.

Schoop had gone 15 straight games without an RBI, but he broke out in a big way on Friday. He knocked in two runs with a double in the fourth inning before slamming a three-run homer in a six-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old failed to maintain his strong first half, but he’s sitting on 25 homers and 82 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop slugged his 22nd home run as the Orioles fell to the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

His two-run blast off Michael Fulmer pulled the O's to within a run at 3-2 in the sixth inning. Schoop finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .275/.308/.468 with 22 homers and 75 RBI on the season.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-5 and hit a two-run blast in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

The jack came in the ninth inning off Blue Jays' closer Roberto Osuna but it wasn't enough to prevent the Orioles from losing. Schoop's semi-breakout campaign last year went largely unnoticed because he only played half the season. This year the 24-year-old has maintained that production over a full season and has provided solid value for savvy owners. He is batting .282 with 21 home runs and 70 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday against the Blue Jays.

Schoop made his first start out of the leadoff spot on Monday with Adam Jones (hamstring) out of the lineup. Steve Pearce hit leadoff on Sunday and could get another chance there Tuesday if Jones needs more time.

Jonathan Schoop smacked a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

Schoop's dinger to lead off the third inning was the Orioles' first hit of the game. They tacked on three more runs in the fourth, with Mark Trumbo joining Schoop in going deep. Schoop now has a career-high 20 home runs, giving the O's five players that have reached the 20-homer mark. Pedro Alvarez (19) will join the group at some point.

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.

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.
