The Detroit Tigers will be without recently-signed 2nd baseman Jonathan Schoop for their first official, full-squad workout on Monday thanks to a Visa issue; his expected arrival in Lakeland is now slated for Wednesday.

The Curacao native is still awaiting a work visa, according to GM Al Avila.

He was signed by the Tigers this past December after slugging 23 home runs for the Minnesota Twins last season.
