2. Schoop seeks strong finish. This season will be remembered as a breakout, MVP-type season for Jonathan Schoop. But since his average reached a season-high .309 on Sept. 3, the 25-year-old second baseman has slumped at the plate. He's batting .212/.247/.306 with two doubles, two homers and four RBIs in his past 22 games. It has been perhaps his worst slump of a spectacular campaign in which he has a .295 average, an .850 OPS, 32 homers and 105 RBIs.
