9/13/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Twins outfielder Jordan Schafer is out of the lineup on Saturday against the White Sox.
Insight: Schafer collided with the outfield wall last week, and Minnesota is being very cautious. He is considered day-to-day.
 
9/6/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Twins outfielder Jordan Schafer is out of the lineup on Saturday against the Angels due to soreness in his ribs.
Insight: Schafer collided with the wall on Friday night. He is considered day-to-day.
 
10/7/2013 10:40:00 AM
Description: Atlanta center fielder Jordan Schafer is questionable for Game 4 of the NLDS Monday against the LA Dodgers with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Schafer sits behind B.J. Upton and had just 231 at-bats this season, batting .247. He can provide speed when in a lineup.
 
9/4/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Atlanta center fielder Jordan Schafer won't compete in Wednesday's game against the Mets.
Insight: He was scratched with a lower back injury. B.J. Upton (.200, 9 HR, 25 RBI) will grab the start in center field.
 
9/2/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer went 4-for-5 with two runs and three steals Monday versus the Mets.
Insight: Schafer was forced into the starting lineup following Jason Heyward's injury. He entered play Monday with 10 strikeouts and two hits in his last 17 at-bats. He's now hitting .275 with 20 steals.
 
7/12/2013 9:58:00 PM
Description: More bad news for Jordan Schafer. A recent MRI showed a stress fracture in his injured ankle. SOURCE: David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: That's going to keep Schafer out for at least another month. The Atlanta outfielder was originally placed on the DL with an ankle bruise about a week ago. With B.J. Upton also hurt, the Braves will be forced to use Reed Johnson in center field.
 
7/4/2013 12:02:00 PM
Description: Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer has a right ankle contusion and has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Schafer fouled a ball off his right ankle last Wednesday. The reserve outfielder should be able to return when he's first eligible.
 
6/23/2013 7:37:00 PM
Description: Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer went 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two runs and a steal Sunday against the Brewers.
Insight: Schafer has received 115 at-bats as Atlanta's fourth outfielder this season and is batting .313 with three home runs and eight steals.
 
5/28/2013 9:23:00 PM
Description: Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer hit his second homer of the season Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Schafer has been getting into the lineup more often due to B.J. Upton's struggles. He's hitting .299 in 77 at-bats with six steals.
 
4/11/2013 9:56:00 AM
Description: Braves outfielder Jordan Schafer went ballistic Wednesday in a win over Miami (4-for-5 with a stolen base).
Insight: The good news is that Schafer is hitting .667 this season. The bad news is, he's only played three times and is unlikely to see regular at bats with the Upton brothers and Jason Heyward occupying Atlanta's three outfield positions. Unless one of those players gets hurt, Schafer won't be a relavant fantasy figure in 2013.
 
11/1/2012 4:53:00 PM
Description: Atlanta has claimed outfielder Jordan Schafer off waivers.
Insight: Schafer hit .211 with 27 steals in 106 games for the Astros in 2012. Schafer could become the team's everyday center fielder if the Braves are unable to retain Michael Bourn in free agency.
 
Cold7/26/2012 6:22:00 PM
Description: After going 0-2 on Wednesday, Houston outfielder Jordan Schafer is out of the lineup for Thursday night's series finale against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Schafer's fantasy stock has taken a nosedive in recent weeks. He's hitless in his last 14 trips to the dish (0-for-11 with three walks) and is now hitting .170 for the month with no homers and just two RBIs.
 
7/5/2012 7:03:00 PM
Description: After going 0-2 on Wednesday, Houston outfielder Jordan Schafer is out of the lineup for Thursday night's series finale against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Schafer (.236, 3 HRs, 20 RBIs) is known for stealing bases but since the beginning of June, he's recorded only five thefts. The Astros center fielder had 14 in the season's first two months.
 
Cold7/1/2012 2:14:00 PM
Description: Houston center fielder Jordan Schafer is on the bench for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Insight: Schafer's terrible June (.176) dropped his average to just .237 for the year. Only use Schafer if you are desperate for stolen bases. He has 18 steals in 24 attempts this season.
 
6/18/2012 7:36:00 PM
Description: Houston center fielder Jordan Schafer is not in the lineup for Monday night's tilt with Kansas City.
Insight: Schafer is batting a mere .246 in 199 at bats this season but he is third in the National League in stolen bases with 16 steals in 21 attempts.
 
5/29/2012 5:28:00 PM
Description: Despite a .373 BABIP, Astros outfielder Jordan Schafer is batting just .260 this season.
Insight: Usually a high BABIP will be paired with a high batting average, but not in Schafer's case. Once his luck on batted balls begins to regress to the league average (.290-.310), Schafer's true batting average will plummet to nauseating depths.
 
5/23/2012 5:40:00 PM
Description: Jordan Schafer (toe) is not in Houston's lineup on Wednesday.
Insight: Schafer missed Monday's game with a lower leg muscle strain. The outfielder has 13 steals, but his ability to swipe bases will be greatly diminished if he keeps suffering lower body injuries.
 
5/22/2012 7:48:00 PM
Description: Jordan Schafer will return to the Astros' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Cubs. Schafer had missed the previous two games because of a lower leg injury.
Insight: Schafer is currently second in the National League in stolen bases with 13. He's batting .254 in 38 games this season.
 
5/21/2012 9:02:00 PM
Description: Jordan Schafer isn't in the Astros' starting lineup on Monday. It's the second game in a row Schafer has missed after injuring his ankle in Saturday's game against the Rangers.
Insight: Schafer's speed makes him an asset (13 steals on 17 attempts this season) though his hitting is average at best (.254, 2 HRs, 11 RBIs in 38 games). Schafer says he is fine so it shouldn't be long before we see him back on the field again. Don't be surprised to see him come in as a pinch hitter later tonight against the Cubs.
 
5/5/2012 4:35:00 PM
Description: Jordan Schafer is not in Houston's lineup on Saturday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Justin Maxwell will play CF. According to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com, Schafer isn't hurt. Astros manager Brad Mills just wants to get Maxwell some playing time. Schafer has missed time recently with soreness to his back and oblique. He's been a speed demon so far this season, swiping 11 bags in 14 chances.
