Schoop went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double and two RBI in Saturday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the Cubs. The veteran infielder has four multi-hit performances in the last eight games, slashing .303/.361/.394 over that stretch, but Saturday's RBI were his first in 11 contests and Schoop hasn't homered since April 27. His .536 OPS on the year remains the worst mark of his career despite the recent hot streak.
Schoop went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Royals. All three hits were singles, but Schoop will take it, as he entered the game batting just .190. The veteran batted .278 in 44 games for the Tigers last season and has proven himself to be a capable hitter at the MLB level, so he should be able to pick up his production at least a little bit heading into the summer.
Schoop went 2-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox. It was Schoop's first multi-hit performance since April 22, and in the 11 games between then and Thursday, the veteran recorded just five hits in 40 at-bats. For the season, Schoop is batting .192, and he'll need to get hot at the plate to hold onto regular playing time, though the Tigers may choose to feature younger players at some point anyway.
Schoop went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. Schoop took Matt Foster deep in the eighth inning for his second home run of the season. The veteran infielder has yet to get going at the plate, as he's batting just .192 with a .492 OPS, but he should still see regular playing time at both first and second base for the Tigers, at least until the team potentially decides to audition some younger players.
Schoop is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals. Harold Castro will enter the lineup in place of Schoop, who had started in each of the Tigers' last six games. Five of those starts came at first base, and that position will likely be Schoop's primary home moving forward with the Tigers likely to deploy the newly activated Miguel Cabrera at designated hitter in most games in an effort to preserve his health. The eligibility Schoop has gained at first base in addition to second base in most fantasy leagues gives him a nice boost, but his lack of production to date has mostly negated that increased positional flexibility. Schoop is slashing .174/.203/.217 with one home run, four RBI and seven runs while striking out at a career-high 29.7 percent rate through 74 plate appearances.
