Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Slims down in offseason
Schoop lost weight in the offseason and feels healthier heading into the 2023 season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Schoop played at 247 pounds last year, and while he didn't say where he was at to begin camp, he is noticeably lighter. The veteran hopes that helps with his production, as he posted a career-worst .561 OPS across 131 games in 2022. Schoop will likely be the team's primary second baseman to begin the year, though he can also play some at first. He will look to rebound to his 2021 form, when he blasted 22 home runs and posted a .755 OPS.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Plans to return to Detroit
Schoop doesn't intend to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract ahead of next week's deadline, Evan Petzold of The Detroit Free Press reports.
Schoop inked a two-year, $15 million contract extension with the Tigers last August, so he would be forgoing a $7.5 million salary for 2023 if he choses to opt out of his contract. After submitting a career-worst .561 OPS over 510 plate appearances in 2022, the 31-year-old was unlikely to approach that $7.5 million salary figure in free agency. Schoop will likely have to compete for a regular role during spring training.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Jonathan Schoop: Lands on IL
The Tigers placed Schoop (ankle) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Detroit had been hopeful that Schoop's sprained right ankle would show enough improvement following Monday's off day for him to return to action at some point within the next few days, but his move to the IL suggests he wasn't healing as quickly as anticipated. The Tigers called up Zack Short from Triple-A Toledo to provide depth in the infield while Schoop is out, but Kody Clemens and Willi Castro will likely be the primary candidates to fill in at second base for the injured 30-year-old....

Schoop has two home runs across 16 games in August, but it's otherwise been a rough month for the veteran. His season average has dipped to .200 amid the slump, and he's never really been able to get going this season. It's a stark contrast to last year, when Schoop batted .278 with 22 long balls and 84 RBI. He has just nine homers and 33 RBI so far in 2022.... See More ... See Less
