      Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Records two hits, two runs in loss

      Jonathan 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 Detroit Tigers may choose to feature younger players at some point anyway.

      Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Homers in win Tuesday

      Jonathan 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 Detroit Tigers, at least until the team potentially decides to audition some younger players.

      Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Heads to bench

      Jonathan 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 Detroit 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.

      Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Serving as DH on Sunday

      Jonathan Schoop will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Royals.With the return of Miguel Cabrera (biceps) from the 10-day injured list, the Detroit Tigers' infield gets a little bit more crowded. Cabrera is starting at first base Sunday, but the veteran will also serve as the DH often. Schoop figures to play frequently at first as well moving forward, though he should also see some time at second along with Niko Goodrum and Willi Castro.

      Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Starting at first Saturday

      Jonathan Schoop is starting at first base and batting fifth in Saturday's game against Cleveland.Schoop started at second base in Thursday's season opener with Miguel Cabrera playing first, but with Cabrera shifting to designated hitter Saturday, Schoop will get first. There was talk during spring training of Schoop getting some run at third base this season, so it appears he may end up playing three different infield positions in 2021, which could make him a more useful fantasy asset if he picks up additional eligibility beyond second base.

Though he's currently behind the Tigers' other position players, Schoop will have plenty of time to get back up to full speed ahead of Opening Day. He's expected to begin the season as the Tigers' everyday second baseman, though the 29-year-old said Sunday that he also plans to work out at third base this spring in an attempt to increase his versatility, per Jason Beck of MLB.com.
