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.”
