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.

Twins' Schafer born to run

Dugout Digest – more Orioles magic

I feel like I’m talking a lot about the Baltimore Orioles lately, but they deserve it. The team is 16-8 in the second half, beating the pants off of a schedule that has been one of the toughest in baseball since the All-Star Break. They haven’t played one game against a team under .500 so far, and may not until next week against the White Sox (depending on whether or not the...

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...
