Scouting Report

Big frame with some growth left. Upright, balanced stance. Has settled down the movement of his head a little on the swing that was a problem two-three years ago. Quick hands and shoulders make his bat speed lightning quick — easily plus. Plus power. Puts on batting practice shows. Can kill fastballs. Trouble with change ups and secondary pitches have given him a somewhat elongated swing at times – which has hurt his average and contact ability. Has shown good agility at 2B in the field. Still having a little trouble making reads from the position, but should become more consistent with reps. Gets to some plays too quickly right now, and at times misjudges liners directly at him. Solid bet to stick at 2nd base, although future growth may push him to a less agility-oriented position like 3rd base or RF. Plus arm that would fit anywhere on the diamond. Smooth transfer and is improving on double plays. Schoop missed a lot of time in 2013, and will most likely need to spend significant time in the minors in 2014 to gain back some of that lost ground. He will need to primarily work on plate discipline. Schoop has a world of talent, but he is still young and raw overall.
