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.

Schafer went 14-for-39 (.359) with a home run and rive RBI over his last 10 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Schafer got off to a slow start after being optioned to Colorado Springs in early May, but he has started to heat up of late. He is not on the verge of being called back to Milwaukee, but there's a good chance that happens at some point later this season, particularly if the Brewers trade outfielder Gerardo Parra.

Schafer was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

The Brewers needed to make room for Scooter Gennett (hand), who is returning from the 15-day disabled list. Schafer still has options, and the Brewers have a couple of backup infielders -- Elian Herrera and Jason Rogers -- that are also capable of playing some outfield.

Schafer is not in the lineup Friday's game against the Cubs.

Schafer had received the start in center field four games in a row, but will now take a step back for Gerardo Parra. Of course, both will probably not see center field all too often once Carlos Gomez returns sometime this weekend.

Schafer is in the lineup Wednesday for the fourth straight day.

Schafer went 4-for-11 with two doubles over his last three starts, so manager Ron Roenicke decided to give him another start Wednesday. Schafer has seen a bump in playing time of late, but he will move back into a part-time role when Carlos Gomez (hamstring) returns to action in the near future.
