Schoop will join Twins

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Sports -

Se­cond base­man Jonathan Schoop and the Twins agreed to a $7.5 mil­lion, one-year con­tract on Thurs­day, an­other step in an off-sea­son re­make of Min­nesota’s in­field.

Schoop’s deal would al­low him to earn a $100,000 per­for­mance bonus for reach­ing 600 plate ap­pear­ances, plus ad­di­tional award bonuses. He was an all-star with Bal­ti­more in 2017 when he hit .293 with 32 home runs with 105 RBI, all ca­reer highs.

He was traded to Mil­wau­kee last sum­mer right be­fore the non-waiver dead­line and be­came a free agent last week, when the Brew­ers de­clined to of­fer him a 2019 con­tract rather than al­low him to be el­i­gi­ble for salary ar­bi­tra­tion. Schoop made $8.5 mil­lion in 2018.

Schoop hit .202 with four homers and 21 RBI in 46 games for the Brew­ers and then was 0 for 8 in the post­sea­son.
