by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I was kind of falling, diving at the same time just to knock that ball down and keep it in the infield and then I think Schoopy was doing the same thing," Hardy said. "We kind of collided. It wasn't bad. My glasses came down, my hat, all that stuff, but nothing was ... It was no big deal."

Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop should be able to play Friday vs. Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop, who had one wisdom tooth removed and another tooth in front of it on Thursday, told reporters he should be able to play Friday against Tampa Bay, per MASN Sports.

"I have to get a workout in today and I'm ready to go," Schoop said. "I feel good. No pain, but the doctor didn't want me to run around yesterday. I think today if I run I could bleed, but I feel good. I'm thankful. I feel ready to go."

Schoop is batting .243 (9 for 37) with two home runs, six RBI in 14 spring games.

Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop working on improving plate discipline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop did not have a good strikeout-to-walk ratio in 2014, and he knows it. Orioles hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh has already declared he wants Schoop to show more patience at the plate in 2015, and Schoop seems to be on board with the strategy, per CSNBaltimore.com.

“I have to swing at strikes more, see more pitches. If you swing at strikes, you get better pitches,” said Schoop, who struck out 122 times and walked just 13 times last year. “I want to get better at everything. I want to get better than last year. If you want to get better, you have to work at everything.

“Walks are going to come. I’m not going in there to walk. I’m the type of hitter that’s aggressive. I want to swing the bat. The walks, I want them to go up, but I’m not going in there to walk. I’m going in there to swing. Hopefully be selective and swing at strikes. If they throw me four balls, I’ll take the base.”


O's hitting coach wants Jonathan Schoop to cut down on strikeouts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) The Orioles had five players with 100 or more strikeouts last season, but also seven players who hit 10 or more home runs, per MASNsports.com. One of those players was infielder Jonathan Schoop, who hit 16 home runs but had just 13 walks to 122 strikeouts.

New Orioles hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh said while he won't change the approach of some Orioles' hitters who strike out a lot, he would like to see the strikeout total decrease for Schoop.

"I think the ones that you kind of look at are somebody like a Jonathan Schoop that you want to cut down and you want to make the walks-to-strikeouts a little bit better. Guys like that," Coolbaugh said. "Maybe there are some of the guys at the bottom of the order who may have higher strikeouts and you want to be able to turn the order over a little bit more by putting the ball in play and getting on base. Those are some of the things I'll be looking at."


Orioles' Jonathan Schoop trying to cut weight for upcoming season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop wants to raise the level of his game for the 2015 season. The 22-year-old is hoping to be more mentally and physically prepared for the grind of the 162-game season.

"My weight is lower than last year. I want to have more range and be faster. Trying to steal some more bases and be faster for the team on the bases to help put more pressure on the defense." Schoop said. "I learned a lot from my teammates. They helped me a lot. One year of experience. I'm better than last year. Mentally and physically, everything. My ups and downs helped me a lot to know myself better too."

Schoop, who hit .209 with 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 2014, is also taking more advice from his teammates about his approach at the plate.

"Be patient. Don't chase too many pitches. Let them throw strikes and swing at strikes. Just have to work on getting better pitches to hit. See how they pitch you. If I can do that, I'll be better," he said. "I worked on everything (this winter). I want to get faster. You have to work on all of it, speed, defense. I want to be a better player than last year."

Jonathan Schoop dealing with rocky rookie season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Orioles infielder Jonathan Schoop has had an up-and-down season at the plate through the first three months of his rookie season. Though, manager Buck Showalter seems to be pleased with how Schoop is carrying himself amid his struggles.

"Think it's more a challenge mentally and emotionally than anything," Showalter said, per MASNsports.com. "The thing I like (is) his defense hasn't suffered. He knows, it gets harped on, bring something every game. How are you going to impact this game?

"You don't get frustrated with them, you get frustrated for them. Because we feel like Jon is going to be a good hitter up here and there are things you go through. You know Manny (Machado), maybe moreso this year than last year, you go through them."

Jonathan Schoop a good, but not great, option


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/31/2014) Let's get one thing straight from the get-go: Jonathan Schoop was the one Fantasy owners wanted winning the second base job in Baltimore. Unlike Jemile Weeks and Ryan Flaherty (who didn't technically lose it but had to shift over to third base with Manny Machado beginning the year on the DL), he has the potential to be a relevant contributor in mixed leagues.

But I wouldn't count on him being anything beyond that. 

He's what I'd call a third-tier prospect -- good enough to know his name and anticipate him playing a regular role in the majors, but not exactly an All-Star in waiting. He has above-average pop for the position he plays, but his minor-league numbers weren't so impressive on the whole, and the scouting reports don't reveal much beyond that. He doesn't have the power of Jedd Gyorko, doesn't have the contact ability of Kolten Wong and isn't anyone's idea of a base-stealer.

I'd say Schoop has some hope of developing into a Neil Walker-type contributor, so if you lost Jurickson Profar as your middle infielder and have had to resort to a Rickie Weeks or DJ LeMahieu type off waivers, Schoop could be a nice find for you. Just don't expect him to carry you.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
