Adam Frazier’s change to the San Diego Padres It was not a surprise, as the 29-year-old player was one of the protagonists of the rumors of the MLB in the last days.

But Frazier wasn’t the only valuable infielder available on the market. There is one that nobody talks about and it would be a good choice, Jonathan Schoop.

There are analysts who point out that Detroit Tigers They contemplate the possibility of offering a contract extension to Schoop, but with their situation – they are third in the American League Center with a balance of 47-54, 13 games away from the Chicago White Sox – the most likely is that they are open to change it.

Schoop, 29, will be a free agent at the end of this season, his ninth in the majors. His salary is $ 4.5 million.

He would be a valuable player for the team that acquires him, because not only does he have a good offensive year (he has a 15-game hitting streak and his line is .288 / .329 / .471 with 17 homers and 60 RBIs), he is also a reliable advocate.

Schoop went to the 2017 All-Star Game with the Baltimore Orioles and can defend first and second base. This year he has spent 67 games in the initial, in which he has a fielding average of .989 with 6 errors. In the second his fielding average improves to .991 with just one error in 22 games.

Without so much noise around, Schoop would be a good addition to a contending team.
