Jimmy Paredes to DH on Saturday for Orioles
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Jimmy Paredes, activated off the disabled list earlier in the day, is playing designated hitter for the Orioles and hitting fifth in the order.
The insertion of Paredes caused some position shuffling across the Orioles' lineup. Chris Davis, who has been playing DH, moved to first base, and first baseman Steve Pearce moved to right. Right fielder Travis Snider is not in the lineup.
With Jonathan Schoop on the disabled list, Ryan Flaherty steps into the lineup, playing second base and batting eighth.
Orioles place Jonathan Schoop on DL with partial PCL tear, MCL sprain
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, after an MRI on his right knee revealed Grade 1 partial PCL tear and MCL sprain, according to the Baltimore Sun. Schoop suffered the injury tripping over Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli on Friday.
Manager Buck Showalter expressed his optimism that Schoop escaped the injury without any damage to his ACL. He also added that Schoop will not require surgery, and is expected to return at some point this season. He'll begin his rehab in Sarasota, per MASN Sports.
Schoop batted 259/.310/.630 with three homers and seven RBI in nine games before the injury.
Orioles' Jonathan Schoop feels he is chasing fewer pitches in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop heads into Friday's game at Boston with three home runs in his last five games and a .708 slugging percentage through eight games.
"I'm looking for a fastball all the time," Schoop said, per MASNsports.com. "Like first pitch, second pitch, all the time looking for a fastball, and then you need to see the ball and react to the offspeed pitch when it comes."
Schoop talked during the spring about chasing fewer pitches. He seems happy with the progress he is making early in the season. Schoop has six strikeouts in 24 at-bats after totaling 122 strikeouts in 455 at-bats in 2014.
"Yeah, I think I am doing that. I feel better and like I am having some good at-bats. Just have to keep it up. I just want to get better. Be better than last year. Have better at-bats," Schoop said.
Orioles' Jonathan Schoop smacks third home run Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 7-5 win over the Yankees Wednesday.
Schoop's third home run of the season came during a five-run sixth inning that turned a 3-2 deficit into a big lead, one that the Orioles were able to protect despite giving two runs back in the eighth. He has hit .292 with three home runs and seven RBI in eight games.
Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop back in action Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop will return to the lineup Monday after being scratched from Sunday's game with a minor quad injury, reports MLB.com.
Schoop was replaced by Ryan Flaherty Sunday while dealing with a sore left quad. He is hitting .286 with two home runs and five RBI so far this season.
The Orioles are currently the favorites (-115) over the Yankees Monday.
|2014 summary: In his first full major league season, Jonathan Schoop showed some impressive power, as his 16 home runs were the fourth-most by a second baseman. However, he struck out in more than one-fourth of his at-bats, didn't hit doubles or draw walks and popped out on 13 percent of his hit balls. As a one-trick pony with a .209 batting average and .244 on-base percentage, Schoop didn't even register among the top 30 second basemen in overall Fantasy value.
Playing time status: Schoop was clearly the Orioles' primary second baseman, but he gave way often enough to utilityman Ryan Flaherty that he amassed just 126 starts. His status shouldn't change much for 2015.
2015 outlook: Schoop should pick his batting average up a bit, but that could be easily offset by a dropoff in power, as he will have a hard time matching his rookie season home run pace. He is still merely an option for AL-only leagues.
