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.
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 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.
Schoop went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates.
It's been a slow start for Schoop, who's batting just .182 with a .453 OPS through 15 games, but it was good to see the veteran connect for his first home run of the season. Schoop has been playing more often at first base with Miguel Cabrera (biceps) out, which has left second base open to Niko Goodrum and Willi Castro.
Schoop is not in the lineup Sunday at Oakland.
Schoop started the past seven games but will head to the bench while mired in and 0-for-10 stretch. Harold Castro will take over at first base and bat sixth in Sunday's series finale.
Schoop is starting at first base and batting seventh in Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Schoop was out of the lineup Saturday, but with Miguel Cabrera (biceps) hitting the 10-day injured list, he'll return to the fold and take over first base. Schoop generally plays second, though he might be asked to play more at first while Cabrera is out. Niko Goodrum will handle the keystone Sunday.
Schoop is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.
Schoop started at first base Friday, but he'll retreat to the bench Saturday with Miguel Cabrera starting at first and Niko Goodrum taking the keystone. Schoop should still play most days moving forward, but manager A.J. Hinch will find ways to get Goodrum and Harold Castro into the lineup and give Schoop some days off.
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.
Schoop will serve as the Tigers' designated hitter and will bat cleanup Sunday against the Orioles, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Schoop will be making his 2021 Grapefruit League debut after he was a late arrival to spring training while he worked to resolve visa issues. 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.
Schoop has completed intake testing and was cleared to join his teammates Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Many players around the league faced visa issues as they returned to the country for spring training, but Schoop's took among the longest to resolve. He's finally ready to go with just three weeks remaining until Opening Day. Whether that's enough time for him to handle a full workload early in the season remains to be seen.
Schoop has finally made it to Florida following a visa-related delay but still has to go through intake testing before joining his teammates, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Several players around the league dealt with visa issues this spring, but few were delayed as long as Schoop was. He should be able to join team workouts within the next few days, however, giving him roughly three weeks to prepare for Opening Day. Whether or not that's enough time likely depends on how well he was able to stay in shape while away from the team.
Schoop's visa issues remain unresolved, so he's been stuck working out at home in Curacao, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Three of the five Tigers who faced similar issues have made it to Florida, but Schoop isn't one of the lucky ones. It remains unclear when he'll be able to join his teammates. Opening Day is still more than four weeks away, but if Schoop can't join the team soon, he may have some issues getting up to speed by the beginning of the regular season.
Schoop has yet to arrive at camp due to visa issues, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Schoop is one of six Tigers with a delayed arrival for similar reasons. As long as he's able to show up soon, Schoop's preparation for the upcoming season shouldn't be significantly affected.
Schoop signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal to return to Detroit on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Schoop has been roughly a league-average hitter over the course of his eight-year career, though he finished above that level in his first season as a Tiger last year, posting a .278/.324/.475 slash line which was good for a 114 wRC+. Assuming he's in the lineup for most of Detroit's games (which shouldn't be too hard given the rebuilding team's roster), he'll have a good chance to reach 20 homers, something he did in each season from 2016 to 2019.
Schoop (wrist) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday.
The move ends Schoop's season, as he'd only just hit the 10-day injured list one week prior. It's not clear if his wrist sprain is worse than originally feared or if he simply wasn't going to have time to return before the end of the week. Brandon Dixon was recalled in a corresponding move.
Schoop was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right wrist sprain.
Niko Goodrum was reinstated in a corresponding move, so Schoop's at-bats will essentially go to Goodrum moving forward. The move is retroactive to Sept. 13, so Schoop could theoretically return on Sept. 23 if he requires the minimum stay.
Schoop was held out Sunday due to hamstring and wrist soreness, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Schoop wasn't in Sunday's lineup as a result of his soreness, and he'll get an extra day to recover Monday as the Tigers have a scheduled day off. Manager Ron Gardenhire didn't sound too concerned about the issues, so Schoop should return to action soon.
Schoop is not in Sunday's lineup against the White Sox.
He has cooled off a bit, hitting .209 with zero home runs in 43 at-bats this month. Sergio Alcantara will start at second base and bat ninth.
