Tigers Second Baseman Exercises 2023 Player Option

He's ready for a fourth season with Detroit.

Detroit Tigers second baseman Jonathan Schoop is exercising his $7.5 million player option for the 2023 season.
Probably not a bad idea, as it was very unlikely that Schoop would have got that much money in free agency. 

The thirty-one-year-old did not enjoy a great season, as he slashed .202/.239/.322, with 11 home runs, 38 RBIs, five stolen bases and 48 runs scored across 131 games. 

However, Schoop did at least contribute well defensively, as he averaged eight defensive runs saved better than the average second baseman. He was also a finalist for the American League's Gold Glove Award at the position, but Andres Gimenez took home the award. 

Schoop is entering his 11th season in the majors, having played with the Baltimore Orioles, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins and Tigers.
