Earlier this month the Minnesota Twins claimed outfielder Jordan Schafer off waivers. The former Braves Center Fielder provides the team with additional outfield depth, something they needed after the departure of Sam Fuld.
Selected in the third round by the Braves in 2005, Schafer was at one time considered one of the better prospects in baseball. In 2008 and 2009 prospect lists, he was considered the number 25 and 42 for Baseball American in those years and number 17 and number 50 for MLB.com.
Hopefully Schafer can put his talent to use in a Twins uniform and live up to his potential.
