Schafer signed a minor league contract with the Orioles on Thursday, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer slashed .238/.342/.317 for the Twins over 74 plate appearances last season. He spent most of the season in Triple-A Rochester, where he posted a .264/.340/.361 slash line in 244 plate appearances. If he earns a call-up to the Orioles next season, he'll only be expected to provide added outfield depth.

Schafer became a free agent after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer spent 2016 splitting time between the majors and the minors, but couldn't stick with the Twins due to his hitting woes. That being said, Schafer does offer a bit of speed and a good propensity to draw walks, so he could land with a new club fairly soon. However, he doesn't project more than a Quad-A outfielder until his bat translates to the big leagues.

Schafer was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite posting decent results in the minor leagues, Schafer hasn't ever translated that success to the major leagues, leaving the Twins no choice but to boot him off the 40-man roster. The outfielder is able to reject the assignment and elect free agency, although he'll likely act as organizational depth no matter where he ends up.

Schafer's contract was purchased from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer will provide the Twins with some depth in the outfield after Danny Santana suffered a shoulder sprain in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays that will require a DL stint. The 29-year-old Schafer offers a capable glove in the outfield, but he's made a minimal impact with the bat over 646 plate appearances at the major-league level, putting together a .212/.286/.319 batting line.

Schafer signed a minor league contract with Minnesota and he'll play for Triple-A Rochester.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins needed depth at Triple-A with Byron Buxton and Max Kepler recently recalled to the majors. Schafter may spend most of the season as depth at Triple-A.

Schafer was granted his unconditional release from the Nationals on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old outfielder was signed to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training this offseason, but after being reassigned to minor league camp earlier in the week, Schafer has elected free agency. He could latch on with a team looking to add outfield depth, but at this point his chances of earning a spot on an Opening Day roster appear to be slim. Schafer batted .200 with six strikeouts over 20 at-bats with the Nationals this spring.

Schafer was reassigned to minor league camp Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer does have some major league experience, but it was still a long shot for him to make the roster with plenty of other higher-upside options available. He'll likely slot in with Triple-A Syracuse for the bulk of the regular season.

Schafer signed a minor league deal with the Nationals that includes an invitation to spring training, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer appeared in 69 games for Milwaukee last season, recording a .221/.299/.311 slash line to go along with one home in 122 at-bats (he has hit just five homers in his major league career). The 29-year-old has never been known for his offensive, but he can play every outfield spot, making him a potentially useful bench player for Washington in 2016.

Schafer will return to the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals. He's slated to lead off and man center field.

EDGE Analysis

With Ryan Braun (back) shut down for the season, expect Schafer to see regular at-bats in center field in the final week. However, his spot atop the order seems a bit more tenuous, as Sunday's appointment looks to just be a byproduct of typical leadoff man Scooter Gennett receiving the afternoon off.

Schafer went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in a 4-3 win over St. Louis on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Schafer was in an 0-for-12 stretch in his previous three games, so the breakout is a promising sign. It's rare to see a hitter record more strikeouts than hits, but that's what Schafer has done this season. He has some nice power-speed potential, but he's never put it all together at the major league level.
