All the active big leaguers who played with Skip Schumaker

Some of Schumaker’s ex-teammates are still near the peak of their powers.

Every person reading this was alive during Skip Schumaker’s playing days. The transition from major leaguer to viable MLB managerial candidate has been accelerated in recent years, but for Marlins fans, this is an exciting contrast from Schumaker’s predecessor, Don Mattingly, who was two full decades removed from playing at the time of his hiring. Even if you do not have vivid memories of Schumaker himself on the diamond, you’re surely familiar with some of his ex-teammates—dozens of them are still active!

With the help of Baseball-Reference, I have compiled this list of current players who shared a clubhouse with Schumaker from 2005-2015 as members of the Cardinals, Dodgers or Reds and sorted them into three different subgroups.

Potential Free Agent/Trade Possibilities

Awkward Fits/Doubtful to be Available

Barely Hanging On

Will we be seeing any of these guys at Marlins camp in February? I’ll throw a dart and say Adam Ottavino inks a two-year deal with the Fish.
