I'm not saying the kid won't make the bigs, I just think we should better results from our 5th best prospect. If the organization thought he could play 2nd, he would have been at 2nd in Bowie. He couldn't push Miclat out of his spot, and Miclat is barely a top 30 prospect.


He also had an OPS of .800 in 350 ABs at AA at the age of 21.

I agree that he needs to settle into a position (LF?) but, for me, this kid has a LOT of upside.

Agreed. If Schoop ends up sticking at 2B then maybe LF is the best option for Hoes. I would think he would be at least average defensively in left being a former CF.

I find it interesting that Ryan Berry remains out there at this point. Seems like I recall him being 6 or 7 pre season.
