Fantasy Baseball: 10 Breakout Players For 2016

Jonathan Schoop

Baltimore has been trying to find a staple at second base since the days of Brian Roberts.  Schoop could be that guy to finally fill that void.

He is sneaky powerful (15 homeruns) and has gotten better at making solid contact.  Through his first 56 plate appearances he has three homers and nine RBI while batting .358.

Although he struggles to keep an attractive on-base percentage and doesn’t walk very often (nine walks in 86 games), fixing those issues will help him enjoy a nice fantasy year as he has plenty of support from Adam Jones, Chris Davis, Manny Machado, and Matt Weiters.

Schoop could be another late round guy to help round out your team or have a stash for an injury scenario. I like to think that he will be someone that you will want to plug into your lineup regardless.
