"I feel much better," said Schoop, who suffered the injury on April 17. "I missed being around here. I'm working hard on my rehab trying to get back."
Schoop is hoping to return before the All-Star break -- perhaps, if he progresses quickly, as early as next month.
"They didn't give me a timetable," he said. "I want to be back right now. I think I'm ahead of schedule, but I don't want to put timetable on myself because if I'm not there at that time, I might be, like, down, but hopefully I'll be back before the All-Star break. Earlier that that, hopefully. I don't know. We'll see."
