Jonathan Schoop – Second Baseman

The Detroit Tigers need to consider bringing back Jonathan Schoop for another year with the organization. He is a Gold Glove award finalist for the 2020 season and is another player who was signed away from the Twins alongside Cron, as was mentioned above.

Last season, Schoop played in 44 games with an injury cutting his a bit season short, but he hit .278/.324/.475 with eight home runs and 23 RBI for the Tigers. Schoop was a defensive asset and was able to be a veteran leader in the clubhouse around some of the younger infielders.

Since the 2021 season will be more of the same with young players coming into the organization and filtering in for opportunities, having Schoop in the infield will allow him to capitalize on that veteran status.

He can mentor and work with the prospects and hopefully help them adjust to the big leagues.

Schoop signed a one-year, $6.1 million contract last season with the Tigers, and he could easily come back and be on a one-year deal once again in 2021.

Schoop is worth the money and worth the investment; if the organization chooses, they could ship him out around the trade deadline and try to get something out of the signing as a rental.

The organization has some decisions ahead of them and being cost-effective and conscientious of their decisions will be huge if they want to have a successful offseason.
