Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Has middling spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop finished spring training with a .241 batting average and one home run in 12 games before MLB suspended play.

A visa issue delayed Schoop's arrival to camp, and the 28-year-old wasn't able to do much once he took the field. Still, he'll have the second base job all to himself in Detroit, and after hitting 23 home runs a season ago in Minnesota, he could be a cheap power source for fantasy owners once the regular season is able to start.

Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Good start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop, who went 1-for-2 with a run scored in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees, is batting .308 this spring.

A visa issue delayed Schoop's arrival to camp, but he's looked comfortable since he got there, going 4-for-13 in six games. The 28-year-old should get regular playing time in Detroit, and he'll look to build upon the 23 home runs and 59 RBI he recorded last season in Minnesota.

Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Slated to report Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is dealing with a visa issue but is expected to report to Tigers' camp Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

The rest of the team is expected to report Sunday and Monday, so Schoop is a few days behind schedule. Nonetheless, he should slot in as Detroit's everyday second baseman as soon as he arrives. The 28-year-old posted a .256/.304/.473 slash line and 23 home runs last season in Minnesota.

Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Lands with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop signed a one-year, $6.1 million contract with the Tigers on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Schoop improved slightly on his 2018 numbers with a .256/.304/.473 slash line and 23 home runs in 2019 during his first season with the Twins. The 28-year-old will remain in the division on a one-year deal with the Tigers, where he is likely to operate as their everyday second baseman.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Smacks 23rd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI Thursday against the Tigers.

Schoop took Jose Cisnero deep in the seventh inning for a two-run homer, his 23rd long ball of the season. Three frames earlier, he recorded an RBI single. The start marked Schoop's second in the team's past five games, as Luis Arraez has taken over primary duties at second base. Even given his demotion, Schoop has bounced back from a poor 2018 campaign to slug .476 across 453 plate appearances.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Out of Game 1 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Indians.

He has started the last five games and is 5-for-16 (.313) with one home run over that span. Look for him to get into the action for Game 2 of the twin bill.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Mashes 22nd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in the Twins' 12-6 loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

The second baseman touched up Aaron Barrett with a two-run shot in the eighth inning for his 22nd of the season. Schoop's high-strikeout, low-walk ways have resulted in an unspectacular .311 on-base percentage, but he's provided decent power in 2019, with his 45 extra-base hits contributing to a solid .489 slugging percentage across 424 plate appearances.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Sitting out second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Schoop's power surge to finish out August had allowed him to pick up more work at the keystone, but manager Rocco Baldelli still seems committed to rookie Luis Arraez as the top option at the position. Now on the bench for the second straight day and third time in four games, Schoop looks on track to fill only a semi-regular role for Minnesota in September.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Power binge continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the White Sox.

That's now four long balls in three games for Schoop, giving the second baseman 21 homers on the year -- his fourth straight campaign with at least 20. He's been losing playing time to rookie Luis Arraez in August, but it will be tough for manager Rocco Baldelli to keep Schoop off his lineup card while he's dialed in at the plate.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Slugs game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the White Sox.

His second-inning blast off Lucas Giolito staked the Twins to a 2-0 lead, giving Michael Pineda and the bullpen all the offense they would need. Schoop has only started four of the last 11 games but has gone yard in three of them, and he's now one long ball shy of his fourth straight 20-HR campaign.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Sits again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Benched for the third time in four games, Schoop appears to have at least temporarily surrendered the primary gig at second base to Luis Arraez. The rookie upholds an .858 OPS through his first 174 big-league plate appearances compared to Schoop's .757 mark (in 355 plate appearances), so it's hard to quibble with manager Rocco Baldelli's lineup decision from a performance standpoint. Schoop's longer track record should help his case for recapturing the top job at the keystone if Arraez falls into a slump at any point.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Schoop will head to the bench for the second straight day, opening the door for Luis Arraez to draw the start at the keystone. Schoop is hitting .233 with two homers and five RBI over his last 10 contests.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Sits again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Schoop will sit out for the second time in three days and seems to be the main victim of rookie Luis Arraez's emergence as a viable everyday lineup option for the Twins. Of course, Schoop's own performance at the plate has played a part in his more muted role of late. He's submitted a .211/.244/.395 line while striking out in 31.7 percent of his plate appearances since the All-Star break.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Takes seat Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Though he supplied a home run in the Twins' last game Sunday versus the White Sox, Schoop has generally disappointed since the All-Star break, turning in a .634 OPS while striking out 30.6 percent of the time in nine contests. Schoop's season-long OPS is 130 points higher and should help him avoid hemorrhaging playing time to some extent, but he may still be forced to sit a couple times a week to open up room in the lineup for the hot-hitting Luis Arraez, who starts at the keystone Tuesday.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

Schoop has started three of the past four games for Minnesota, going 3-for-12 with four strikeouts. In his absence, Luis Arraez is covering the keystone, with Miguel Sano at third base and Marwin Gonzalez at first.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is not starting Tuesday against the Yankees.

Schoop sits for the fifth time in seven games, though he was battling an abdominal strain for part of that stretch. Luis Arraez starts at the keystone Tuesday.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop is not in Sunday's lineup against the A's.

He returned Saturday after missing three games with a mild abdominal strain, and the Twins will evidently ease him back with an off day in the final game of this series. Luis Arraez is starting at second base and hitting seventh.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop (abdomen) is back in the lineup Saturday, playing second base and batting eighth against the A's.

Schoop missed three games after suffering a mild abdominal strain in Tuesday's loss. He will slot back in against lefty Brett Anderson and look to build upon his already-impressive line against southpaws this season (.262/.366/.508). Schoop has been about 125 OPS points worse against righties, and it's possible he sits in favor of Luis Arraez more frequently moving forward.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop (abdomen) remains out Friday against Oakland.

Schoop sits for the third straight game after leaving Tuesday's contest with an abdominal strain. Luis Arraez remains the starter at second base.

Twins' Jonathan Schoop: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schoop (abdomen) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Athletics.

Schoop left Tuesday's game against the Mets with a mild abdominal strain and did not appear in Wednesday's contest. Luis Arraez remains the starter at second base in his absence.
