Latest Update Schumaker had surgery to repair torn labrum in his left shoulder on Friday. Fri Sep, 12, 03:49 PM
Is smart and patient at the plate. Can be a singles machine and shows consistency. Scores runs consistently. Can play the outfield but has made a smooth conversion to second base.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a lot of power in his bat. Doesn't make a lot of use of his speed when on base. Struggles against left-handed pitching. Is not as smooth when at the keystone position.
He is officially done for the season now. It shouldn't impact the fantasy world much as Schumaker was more utility player than starter. Analyst: Howard Bender
Schumaker made the most of his start on Wednesday, which was just his fourth in the team's last 10 games, as he is now sitting on a .240 average with two home runs and 21 RBI through 229 at-bats. Unless he picks up the pace and gains a full-time role, there is no reason he should be a fantasy consideration down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Schumaker is hitting just .244 on the year and the home run was his second of the season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
The Reds have been anxiously awaiting the return of Schumaker and will immediately insert him into the lineup at second base Sunday. With Brandon Phillips out for almost the entire rest of season, if the Reds don't actively pursue a replacement, Schumaker will be their starting second baseman the rest of the way.Analyst: Howard Bender
