RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
For much of the last decade, the Orioles have an organizational hole at shortstop. But now at the major league level they have J.J. Hardy, gifted to them by the Twins before the 2011 season, and elite prospect Manny Machado, so it's easy to overlook that Schoop is also in the organization. In his first full season stateside, Schoop advanced to the High-A Carolina league as a 19-year old after first making it to the Futures Game. When he played at the same level as Machado, he played third base while Machado played shortstop, and that's probably how it will work if and when both make it to the major league level. Schoop is still filling out his frame and can reasonably be expected to hit for more power once he does so.
