Said Dickerson, who saw Schoop play short in his first days in the Orioles organization in 2009: "Just brought back memories. … As I keep saying about second base, we're going to stay in the middle. It's all about lower-half quickness. We know his hands are good, his arm strength is there, his intelligence level to play the middle infield is there. So, he has everything other than the prototypical run-around sand flea-type lower half. But other than that, I was impressed."
