|Skip Schumaker, Dodgers struggling|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/24/13) Like most of his teammates, Dodgers utility infielder Skip Schumaker has struggled to get going so far this year. But Schumaker, who is hitting .213 for a last-place team, isn't worried.
"From experience it takes awhile for everyone to come together and to have chemistry. Once that happens and everyone can trust each other, we'll be all right," Schumaker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
For his part, Schumaker is showing signs of life recently, despite not playing every day. He has started six of the last 10 games, and is batting .304 in that span.

(5/13/13) Dodgers second baseman Skip Schumaker recorded a hit on Sunday during a 5-3 win at home over the Marlins. Schumaker doubled for the fourth time this season.
Going 1 for 3 with a run scored in the game, Schumaker raised his batting average to .190. Struggling with the bat for most of the year, Schumaker has hit in four straight games and has gone 5 for 11 (.455) over that stretch with three doubles and three RBI. He's also stolen a base over that span.

(4/30/13) Dodgers infielder Skip Schumaker made his second career pitching appearance Monday against the Rockies, taking the mound in the ninth inning of a 12-2 loss.
"It's a tough situation because you're getting your butt kicked and you try not to have too good of a time out there because you're down by ," said Schumaker, who pitched some in college, per MLB.com. "But you don't get too many chances for that. I remember growing up watching Orel [Hershiser] pitch, so I was on the same mound as Orel. That was pretty cool."
Schumaker allowed two hits and a walk, but he escaped a bases-loaded jam by inducing Jonathan Herrera to ground out to end the threat. Schumaker threw 25 pitches.
"You just try to not get anybody hurt and get through that inning as quick as you can," said Schumaker, who is batting .139 (5 for 36) in 21 games.
|Skip Schumaker had been as much of a mainstay for the Cardinals as any player since Albert Pujols left, having gotten semi-regular playing time at either left field or second base since 2008. But with his at-bats dwindling in recent years, the Cardinals decided this offseason that they no longer had a need for him, shipping him to Los Angeles for a minor-leaguer. With the star-studded Dodgers, Schumaker could potentially have a resurgence of sorts. Not only will he provide insurance for Carl Crawford, who's recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he could potentially emerge as the better half of a lefty-righty platoon with 35-year-old Mark Ellis at second base. Of course, Schumaker's lack of power or speed limits his appeal to NL-only leagues, but if he gets to bat in the right spot in that lineup, he could be a sneaky middle infielder in those formats.
