JORDAN SCHAFER RUMORS

Twins' Schafer born to run

MINNEAPOLIS -- If Jordan Schafer gets on base, he's going to try to run. The speedy outfielder the Twins acquired from Atlanta on Aug. 3 isn't afraid to try and steal bases. When he does, he's pretty successful at it. Schafer has stolen six bases in six attempts since joining Minnesota's offense, and he's been safe in 81 percent of his attempts during five major...

Schafer eager to seize opportunity with Twins

Jordan Schafer has struggled offensively this year, and the new Twins outfielder is the first to admit it. In a total of 63 games with Atlanta before Minnesota claimed Schafer off waivers, he hit just .163 with two RBI in 80 at-bats.

Jordan Schafer, who had one single in July for the Braves, lined a fastball to right field in his first at-bat as a Twin on Tuesday night.

Getting to know Jordan Schafer through Google images

This morning, the Twins snagged Jordan Schafer on waivers. I wanted to find out a bit about him so I could perhaps give some sort of yea or nay verdict on the acquisition (The team gave up nothing for him, so there is really no reason not to take a chance).
