Schoop spent the first 5.5 seasons of his MLB career with the Baltimore Orioles before they traded him to Milwaukee late last season. He only batted .202 with the Brewers and had an off season all around.
Schoop’s best year came in 2017 when he batted .293 with 35 doubles, 32 homers, 105 RBIs and an .841 OPS. He made the All-Star team that year. He is mostly a second baseman but has also played some shortstop and third base during his career.
