  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Hammers third homer

    Schoop went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 3-2 win over the Rays.

    Schoop left the yard for the third time this season in the bottom of the fourth inning, as he lifted his club to an early 2-0 lead. His struggles at the dish have carried over into May, however, as he's 10-for-54 with two homers, three RBI and five runs scored over 15 games.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Goes deep Tuesday

    Schoop went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    Schoop added a single in four at-bats during the second game, but he did his damage in Game 1. The veteran now has two home runs this season and is batting just .157, though at least he recorded three total hits Tuesday, which could get him going a little bit. Schoop batted .278 with 22 home runs a year ago.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Receives first day off

    Schoop is not in the lineup Thursday against the Astros.

    Schoop has started all 23 games this season and is mired in a 1-for-19 slump and has a .367 OPS overall, so he'll take a seat Thursday. Harold Castro will man the keystone in his place and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Struggles continue Saturday

    Schoop went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

    It's been a struggle this season for Schoop, who is batting just .145 with a .399 OPS. The veteran batted sixth Saturday and has slipped down to seventh in the order at times, so the Tigers are trying to get him going in a less prominent spot. Schoop did bat .278 each of the last two seasons, and he supplied 22 home runs and 84 RBI in 2021, so he'll likely get things going at some point based on his track record in the majors.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Drops to seventh in order

    Schoop will start at second base and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Twins.

    Manager A.J. Hinch has elected to make big changes to the lineup for the series opener in Minnesota, as Jeimer Candelario and Schoop will both be dropped two spots in the order from the Nos. 4 and 5 positions, respectively. Schoop enters Tuesday with a three-game hitting streak, but he's still slashing a lowly .155/.210/.241 with five RBI and four runs over 15 games this season.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Hits first 2022 home run

    Schoop went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    It's been a slow start for Schoop, as he's batting just .217 with a .685 OPS, though at least he now has his first home run of the season. The veteran infielder popped 22 home runs to go with 84 RBI and a .755 OPS in 2021, so better days should be ahead.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Appears destined for second

    With Spencer Torkelson making the Opening Day roster, per Jason Beck of, Schoop will likely serve as the Tigers' primary second baseman this season.

    Schoop primarily worked at first base for the Tigers in 2021, but that's where Torkelson will be playing in 2022. That should shift Schoop back to the keystone, where he's played plenty in his nine-year MLB career. The veteran is coming off a solid season in which he provided 22 home runs and 84 RBI, and he should be a solid fantasy asset in the middle infield this year.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Hits first spring home run

    Schoop went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies.

    The home run was the first of the spring for Schoop after the veteran hit 22 long balls across 156 games for the Tigers last season. Schoop split his time between first and second in 2021, but if top prospect Spencer Torkelson takes over as the primary option at first in 2022, the former will likely see more time at the keystone.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Not starting Sunday

    Schoop is on the bench for Sunday's regular-season finale against the White Sox.

    Schoop went 0-for-4 on Saturday but still hit .325 in his last 10 games. Eric Haase gets the start at first base while Dustin Garneau gears up to catch.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Goes deep in loss

    Schoop went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI in the loss to the White Sox on Monday.

    The 29-year-old took Dallas Keuchel deep in the fifth inning before driving in Niko Goodrum with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The homer was his 21st of the season. Schoop also extended his hitting streak to eight games, though he only has three extra-base hits and three RBI in those contests.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Hit streak reaches seven

    Schoop went 1-for-4 with a base hit in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Royals.

    Schoop's base knock off Kris Bubic in the bottom of the sixth helped the 29-year-old extend his hitting streak to seven games. Though his counting-stats production has taken a hit in recent weeks -- Schoop has zero home runs, zero steals, six runs and one RBI over his last 13 games -- he continues to hold down a solid .276 average for the season. He'll stick in the lineup for Monday's make-up game against the White Sox, manning first base and batting second.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Scores twice in win

    Schoop went 2-for-6 with two runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 extra-innings win over Tampa Bay.

    Schoop got plenty of chances at the plate in the 11-inning contest, and the veteran infielder continued his strong season. The 29-year-old is now slashing .281/.320/.441 with 20 home runs, 77 RBI and 78 runs scored across 139 games. He should continue to receive ample playing time and remain a solid fantasy option.
