CHICAGO (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have claimed outfielder Jordan Schafer off waivers from the Atlanta Braves.
The Twins announced the move Sunday. They are off Monday and must make a corresponding roster move to open a spot for Schafer before Tuesday's game against San Diego.
The 27-year-old Schafer hit .163 with two RBIs and 15 stolen bases for the Braves this season. He is a career .222 hitter with 145 runs and 88 steals.
Schafer was designed for assignment by the Braves after they acquired utilityman Emilio Bonifacio and left-hander James Russell from the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.
