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

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

"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."
