Minnesota Twins may have set second base market with Jonathan Schoop

While Jonathan Schoop’s recently announced deal with the Minnesota Twins is quite minor in value, it could set a precedent for other second basemen on the free agent market this year. When Jonathan Schoop with the Minnesota Twins on signed Thursday, many were rather apathetic towards the entire development. While Schoop certainly has the potential to be […] Minnesota Twins may have set second base market with Jonathan Schoop - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sources: Your dad will not pronounce ‘Schoop’ correctly until well into 2019

“We haven’t seen a situation like this since the Krzyzewski Incident of 1986.” The Twins’ acquisition of former Oriole/Brewer second baseman Jonathan Schoop received mostly positive reviews on Thursday, with a relatively inexpensive contract ($7.5 million for one year) for a spot that needed filling, and the hope that he’ll return to his 2017 form. The reaction was more subdued at your childhood home, as sources are saying your dad, Jeff, will butcher Schoop’s last name well into the 2019 MLB season. “Pa loves the Twins, but he’s terrible with names,” said Julie, your...

Milwaukee Brewers: How did Junior Guerra keep his job?

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly agreed to deals to add infielders Jonathan Schoop and Ronald Torreyes to their roster for 2019.

Report: Former Brewer Jonathan Schoop signs with Minnesota Twins

Report: Former Brewer Jonathan Schoop signs with Minnesota Twins

Not even a week after a non-tender, Schoop has a new team. It didn’t take Jonathan Schoop long to find a new team after his non-tender last week. On Friday, the Brewers announced they would non-tender the second baseman, and David Stearns admitted it was his worst move as GM. Today, Schoop has a new team to work for, as Ken Rosenthal reports the Twins will sign Schoop to a one-year, $7 million contract. Had the Brewers held on to Schoop, he would have been heading for a big pay day in his final year of arbitration. MLB Trade Rumors had a projection of $10 million of Schoop, even after his...

... ending one of the shortest Cubs tenures ever. The Cubs acquired Ronald Torreyes from the Yankees November 28 for a player to be named later or cash considerations. (It will likely be cash considerations.) Two days later they non-tendered him. The possibility existed that they could sign him back to a minor-league deal. Except that possibility no longer exists: The Twins, who appear to be on the verge of signing Jonathan Schoop, announced that they have signed Ronald Torreyes to a one-year contract.— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) December 6, 2018 And here’s how much he will be...

Milwaukee Brewers: Is Daniel Murphy the answer at Second Base?

After deciding not to bring back Jonathan Schoop, it confirmed what many had already expected which is that the Milwaukee Brewers are still looking for their 2019 second baseman.

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: Derek Dietrich

A utility man without much defensive utility, Dietrich can at least hit from the left side. Would the Brewers be able to hide his glove enough to make him an effective second base stopgap? With the failed trade and non-tender of Jonathan Schoop, second base looks to again be an immediate need for the Milwaukee Brewers — even if it’s just a short-term fix until Keston Hiura proves he’s ready (if you’re willing to believe the organization) or he clears the Super Two deadline (if you’re being cynical). That likely means any second base help the Brewers consider this offseason will...
