Detroit Tigers number three nomination: Jonathan Schoop
One of the most underrated players on the Detroit Tigers this season has been infielder Jonathan Schoop. Schoop, who can play both first base and second base, should certainly be in the mix for one of the rare Detroit bats who could be considered for the upcoming All-Star Game. Schoop is seeing the ball extremely well this season and has sustained success throughout the season.
Jonathan Schoop has a .274 batting average, .330 on-base percentage, 71 hits, 34 runs, 13 home runs, and 34 RBI for the Detroit Tigers this season, and he has some very good rankings in the American League as well. Schoop’s batting average ranks 4th amongst American League first basemen, his 71 hits rank 4th amongst American League first basemen, and his 13 home runs rank 2nd amongst American League first basemen.
Jonathan Schoop is very quietly producing an All-Star worthy season for the Detroit Tigers, and he could get some votes to represent the team in the Midsummer Classic in July.
