The Milwaukee Brewers are enjoying one of the hottest starts to the season in their franchise history. At 14-5, they're red hot. They open a three-game set at home tonight against the San Diego Padres but they'll have to do it without outfielder Logan Schafer, who was placed on the Disabled List yesterday. Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweets it out: Logan...
The Milwaukee Brewers made a series of roster moves prior to Sunday's series finale in Pittsburgh, placing outfielder Logan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring and activating first baseman Lyle Overbay from the paternity list.

When Elian Herrera was inserted in place of Khris Davis in the seventh inning Friday as a defensive replacement, it became apparent something wasn't right with Logan Schafer.

#35 Pick RHP Josh Easley was drafted in...
If all had gone according to plan for the Milwaukee Brewers this season, Logan Schafer would be a fourth outfielder fighting to stay ready on the bench, while Caleb Gindl and Khris Davis would be playing in Triple-A.
But nothing has gone according to plan for the Brewers this season. Even backup plans have found a way to go awry.
There are very few positives in the season-ending...
MILWAUKEE -- Opportunity was supposed to be slim and playing time scarce for whoever Milwaukee's backup outfielders were this season.
The Brewers were locked in with their starting outfielders, as all three were coming off good seasons. Ryan Braun, Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki not only were expected to be Milwaukee's outfield trio for this season, but all three are under...
Caught in the midst of a deep outfield situation with the Milwaukee Brewers, young outfielder Logan Schafer hadn't had many chances to prove himself at the major league level. There just wasn't enough room in the outfield for the promising prospect.
But since joining the Brewers bench for September call-ups, Schafer has proved plenty. And on the day of his first-ever major...
