Jonathan Schoop smacks first home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop went 2 for 4 with his first home run of the season and three RBI in his team's 5-4 win over the Yankees Wednesday.

Schoop smacked a three-run home run off Yankee starter Masahiro Tanaka in the second inning, and that was all the scoring Baltimore could muster until plating two in the ninth inning. Schoop has hit .233/.233/400 in 30 at-bats.


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.


Jonathan Schoop starts at 2B opening day for Orioles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop drew the start at second base opening day against the Red Sox following an impressive spring. Schoop hit .385 (15 for 39) with two home runs, five doubles and eight RBI in 22 spring games.

Jonathan Schoop makes 25-man roster


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I worked hard for this," Schoop said. "After the season I went home and I said if I wanna achieve my goal and play in the major league -- I got a taste of it last year and I never want to go back. That was my mentality."

Report: Jonathan Schoop on verge of landing roster spot

(3/7/2014) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop continued his impressive spring by hitting his first home run in his only at-bat of the day in his team's 15-4 win over the Phillies Friday.

Schoop is competing for the starting job at second base and doing a great job of standing out in the early part of March, going 5 for 9 with one home run, two doubles and one walk in six appearances. He also put up strong numbers during a brief spring performance last season, going 4 for 6 with one home run in 2013.

by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Schoop, 22, hit .286 with a home run and RBI over 14 at-bats last season. He has hit at least 13 home runs in each of the last three seasons, and has a .268 average over five minor league campaigns.

The Orioles have Jemile Weeks and Ryan Flaherty currently locked in a battle for starting second baseman.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

He finished 2 for 3 with a walk, HR and three runs scored in his MLB debut.

Jonathan Schoop laces single in first career at-bat


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Orioles second base prospect Jonathan Schoop recorded a single up the middle in his first career at-bat Wednesday in his major league debut for Baltimore against the Blue Jays. Schoop, who started at second, saw his first at-bat in the third inning and singled before Ryan Flaherty drove him in with a homer. 

Schoop laced a single up the middle on the second pitch he saw from Esmil Rogers. Schoop played most of this season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he batted .256 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 70 games. He missed time earlier in the year with a stress fracture in his back.


Jonathan Schoop to make debut Wednesday


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/25/2013) Orioles prospect Jonathan Schoop will make his major league debut Wednesday, as he is in the starting lineup versus the Blue Jays at second base.

Schoop played most of this season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he batted .256 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 70 games. He missed time earlier in the year with a stress fracture in his back.


Orioles adding from Triple-A roster


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) With the Triple-A Norfolk Tides losing in their bid to get to the playoffs Monday, that means the Orioles' roster will have some new faces on Tuesday, MLB.com reports. 

Manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Baltimore can expect to add the likes of outfielder/designated hitter Henry Urrutia, pitcher Josh Stinson and top position prospect Jonathan Schoop from the Tides. 

Schoop recorded a hit in Monday's loss to Durham. He's batting .222 over his last 10 games with a homer and two RBI. Schoop hit .255 at Norfolk this year over 267 at-bats with nine homers and 34 RBI in a down season marred by injury. 

Urrutia spent some time with Baltimore earlier in the season and will likely be used as a pinch-hitter or designated hitter. Stinson made a start for Baltimore earlier this year and will be used in middle relief. 


Jonathan Schoop all the way back at Triple-A Norfolk


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) Orioles top position prospect Jonathan Schoop, who just finished a rehab assignment from a stress fracture in his back and has rejoined Triple-A Norfolk, erupted in his third game back. 

Schoop went 0 for 7 with three strikeouts in his first two games with the Tides after his activation. They were his first Triple-A games since May 12. On Monday, however, Schoop went 3 for 4 with a homer and two RBI. 

Baltimore's No. 3 prospect to open the season and top position prospect is hitting .268 with Norfolk on the season but was ice cold for most of the beginning of the season. Now that he's healthy, he'll continue working on improving that batting average and could be seen with the Orioles as a late-season callup.
