JORDAN SCHAFER RUMORS

Platooning Hicks and Schafer

Earlier this evening, PiPress Twins guy Mike Berardino put forth the idea of platooning Aaron Hicks and Jordan Schafer as an option instead of trading for Cameron Maybin or Peter Bourjos. My preference had always been to add an outfielder to play full time instead of Hunter or Arcia and maximize the trade value of Kennys Vargas or Josmil Pinto. Better defense means better pitching...

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. Claimed off waivers from Atlanta last August, Schafer had 41 games with Minnesota last year in which to audition for a starting job in 2015. Though he'll enter...

Twins Injury Update: Jordan Schafer in lineup despite wall collision

Even though Jordan Schafer had a nasty wall collision, he was back in the Minnesota Twins everyday lineup in the 3-2 loss against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night. Most times after a nasty collision like Schafer's teams are cautious because of possible head injuries, but as Twinsights blog reported, Schafer's pain was not head related. Schafer said it was more of a 'whole...

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...

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). Basically, all he is there for is for his speed. He has 88 stolen bases in 395 career games. He also has a .222 average and...
