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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Mar 2 - 5:30 PM

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that several teams have inquired about Jonathan Schoop this off-season, but have been told by the Orioles that he isn't available.

Schoop had a breakout season offensively in 2015, slashing .279/.306/.482 with 15 homers and 39 RBI. He appears entrenched at second base in Baltimore for the foreseeable future and is an intriguing commodity in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Jonathan Schoop, who ended his 2015 season with a right hand injury, said Saturday that he's 100 percent healthy and has been participating in his regular offseason workouts.

The 24-year-old infielder burst onto the scene in 2015, slashing .279/.306/.482 with 15 homers and 39 RBI in 305 at-bats for the O's. He should be locked in as the team's starting second baseman heading into 2016 and possesses intriguing fantasy potential for a middle infielder that can be had in the middle rounds of drafts.

A second X-ray on Jonathan Schoop's right hand came back negative.

It confirms the first diagnosis. Schoop isn't in Sunday's lineup but is available off the bench.

Jonathan Schoop is set to have another X-ray of his injured hand on Saturday as he continues to deal with swelling.

While the first X-ray didn't find a fracture, Schoop is still in quite a bit of pain and the swelling hasn't subsided as anticipated. There's a good chance that his season is over.

Jonathan Schoop (hand) is not in the Orioles starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Schoop was pulled from Thursday's game against the Blue Jays after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. He's considered day-to-day and could be ready to return for the second game on Saturday.

Jonathan Schoop exited Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with a right hand contusion.

Schoop was hit in the hand with a pitch in the first inning and Paul Janish replaced him at second base after a lengthy rain delay. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day.

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday afternoon's win over the Nationals.

Schoop went yaya off Nationals starter Tanner Roark in the fourth inning, scoring Matt Wieters on the two-run shot. It would be his only hit of the game. Over 284 at-bats, the 23-year-old second baseman is slashing a strong .278/.305/.486 with 15 homers and 39 RBI. If he can stay healthy next season, we like those numbers to improve.

Jonathan Schoop blasted a pair of solo home runs on Sunday night as the Orioles dispatched of the Royals 8-2 in Baltimore.

Schoop took Royals ace Johnny Cueto deep to left-center for a solo shot in the second inning, then belted another one out to center in the fourth. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-4. The second baseman has been a huge part of the O's offense when he has been healthy, slashing .291/.322/.520 with 14 homers and 37 RBI in what looks to be a breakout season for the 23-year-old.
