Schoop getting some respect

7 posts in this topic

Buck prefers strong defense at 2B. So if his glove is ready, watch out. But I havent realy heard any scouting reports there.

I like what they're saying about him in that scouting report.

Definitely exciting. If they can develop a guy like Delmonico, and bring up Schoop to play them both around Machado, and Davis fully develops, that looks like one heck of a future infield. I don't know if Delmonico could develop fast enough to play with Davis and the rest of the guys that are up right now (with the exception of Machado).

Schoop was brought in as a SS but got moved due to Manny. He hit well at Delmarva and Frederick too with some pop.

 

If they are committed to building from within, second base is his to lose and he could be with the big club by mid-summer '13.

I was thinking the same thing, although I didn't have a projected time for him to move up to the O's. last year, DD didn't make any moves to strengthen 3B, even though Reynolds was lost at the position. shortly after that, Manny comes up and the 3B problem is solved.

 

I figured Schoop was reason why DD didn't bring in a long term replacement at 2B. there's also the fact that Keppinger was the only real FA option worth considering.

By the time Schoop is ready to be called up, Flaherty may have improved his game enough to be starting at 2B. Most question his defense and his plate discipline, but Flaherty has light tower power.
