According to MASN, the brother of Jonathan Schoop was called up to join the team on Monday from Triple-A Norfolk. Sharlon Schoop is the second baseman’s older brother.
While the move unites the brothers, it could be short-lived. Sharlon Schoop was called up due to the suspension of Manny Machado, who threw a nasty punch at Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and earned rave reviews for his work. Machado is expected to be back Friday, and Sharlon Schoop isn’t even getting a place on the roster.
Still, it’s always heartening to hear about pro sports teammates connected by more than the big paycheck that brought them to a town where they probably didn’t grow up. In this case, the brothers from Curaçao will probably happy to spend some time together stateside.
