Latest Update Jonathan Schoop hits eighth home run Wed Jul, 23, 07:38 AM
Owns good power for a middle infielder, plus a lot of positional versatility. Also boasts a very good throwing arm and soft hands, no matter where he plays.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much, partly due to the fact he has a bit of a long swing. Also, he's not much of a stolen-base threat. Must find his positional niche.
It's been three games since his last hit which just happened to be his last home run. Schoop has struggled at the plate this year, batting just .220, but there seem to be correctable aspects of his plate discipline that could improve with added experience. For now though, he's a rookie with a low average, who can't draw a walk and has middling power in the middle infield. Not exactly the recipe of a winner for fantasy championship purposes right now, but he's got promise in the future. Analyst: Howard Bender
Schoop has flashed some power at times this season,but Sunday's home run was just his first since going yard twice back on May 26. He is now sitting on a .222 average through his first 216 at-bats and will have to show more consistency before gaining any true fantasy value outside of deep AL-only leagues moving forward.

With Monday's multi-homer performance, Schoop is now raised his season total up to five home runs with 17 RBI through his first 149 at-bats. However, he will need to figure out how to take more walks (4 BB) while lowering his strikeout rate (25.5 percent K Rate) before gaining any significant fantasy value. Analyst: Matthew Beck
The Orioles will likely keep him out Thursday unless they absolutely need him to play. The fingernail may even keep him out Friday, but he should be back at some point over the weekend. Schoop is batting .224 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 116 at-bats this season.Analyst: Howard Bender
