JORDAN SCHAFER RUMORS

Cardinals' Schafer aims to be 2-way utility player

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) On any given spring day, Jordan Schafer double-checks the schedule to confirm whether live batting practice means he needs to bring a bat or heat up his arm. For a St. Louis Cardinals team that values versatility, Schafer, a former outfielder-turned-pitcher, could become the ultimate utility player. ''I joke around and say it's almost like being back in high...

Minnesota Twins: Time for a change in center field

By Luke Hanlon Coming into the season, a big question facing the Minnesota Twins was who is going to start in center field?

In the Twins’ 14 games thus...

Schafer hopes to be Twins' answer in center field

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins don't have a ton of questions to answer defensively this spring. Center field, however, is one of the big question marks. Jordan Schafer hopes he is the answer to that question for the Twins.

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 league seasons. Some...

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. It didn't help that Schafer wasn't getting regular playing time, stuck in a logjam in the Braves' outfield. Still, his bat has never been the best tool...
