Twins | Jordan Schafer to the DL

Sat, 16 May 2015 18:03:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right medial collateral ligament Saturday, May 16. The move was retroactive to May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been struggling all year, and this isn't the first knee issue he has dealt with. Even when he returns, he doesn't figure to have much value at FantasyScore.

Twins | Jordan Schafer returns

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:16:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) is back in the starting lineup Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) won't be a popular or smart play at FantasyScore tonight coming off a knee injury, and he's hitting only .188 (9-for-48) with two RBI on the season. He's also facing a lefty, and he hit just .143 (7-for-49) with no homers against southpaws in 2014. Avoid him everywhere.

Twins | Jordan Schafer out vs. White Sox

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:19:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 30. Schafer left in the sixth innings with a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Wednesday, April 29. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field and batting eighth Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid both Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. With Chris Sale on the hill for the White Sox, there is no reason to roster Robinson. Additionally, both Schafer and Robinson are low-level AL-only players in seasonal leagues.

Twins | Jordan Schafer injures knee

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 16:32:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer (knee) left in the sixth innings with a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is likely to miss at least a couple of days, if not longer, after injuring his knee. Shane Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) replaced Schafer in center in the game, and he could see a few starts in center field depending on how long Schafer sits out. Robinson doesn't tip the scales at all at FantasyScore.

Twins | Jordan Schafer sitting against lefty

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:35:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Jason Vargas Tuesday, April 21. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field and hitting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has very little FantasyScore appeal with his weak stick, especially at the bottom of a poor Twins lineup. Avoid him in your daily lineups against the Royals.

Twins | Jordan Schafer out vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 09:15:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Jason Vargas Thursday, April 16. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field and hitting ninth in the batting order in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't an offensive threat at all, really, so he should be ignored in all daily games. Hitting at the bottom of the Minnesota order shouldn't endear him at all to fantasy gamers.

Twins | Jordan Schafer sitting Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:29:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Jordan Schafer is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Monday, April 13. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field in his place and batting ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has very limited power and hasn't hit better than .253 in any of his major league seasons. Ignore him at FantasyScore.

Twins | Minnesota CF competition open

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:53:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins OFs Aaron Hicks, Jordan Schafer, Eddie Rosario and Shane Robinson are essentially all battling for the starting center field job in spring training, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor said the competition remains wide open, but Hicks is believed to be the favorite for the job and has hit .300/.400/.500 with two triples and two RBI in eight games. Rosario has also turned heads, but he's not on the current active roster and hasn't played above Class AA. Molitor thinks Hicks needs to win the job to make the roster, too, because the team wants him to play every day to further his development.

Fantasy Tip: With Hicks being the favorite for the job, he has to carry the most fantasy value, albeit limited. Hicks could also end up in a platoon in center, which makes his path to consistent at-bats shaky. None of these options should be drafted in standard leagues, and even Hicks is only worth a low investment in AL-only formats.

Twins | Jordan Schafer, Aaron Hicks to battle?

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 13:51:37 -0800

Minnesota Twins OFs Jordan Schafer and Aaron Hicks will be in the running for the starting center field job in 2015, with Schafer potentially being the most major league-ready option for the club. Schafer has had the better career to date, and he played better in 2014, too. Schafer has underperformed in his career, and he's cited a lack of consistent playing time as a result. He hit .285/.345/.362 after joining the Twins last year in less than 150 plate appearances. Schafer provides quickness in the outfield and on the bases, and he's excelled at hitting righties. Hicks, on the other hand, has hit lefties much better in his young career, so the two could make an interesting combination in a platoon in center field.

Fantasy Tip: At first glance and based off their splits, Schafer and Hicks figure to enter the season in a platoon role in center if the Twins plan on keeping Danny Santana at shortstop. Because of that, neither is an attractive option in mixed leagues. Schafer may have the slight edge in AL-only formats, but you have to consider that Byron Buxton may eventually enter the picture at some point this year, which would further complicate matters.
