News: Schafer will open the season on the Brewers' 25-man roster, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Schafer earned a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster by hitting .300 (15-for-50) in 24 spring games. However, he owns just a .209 career batting average at the big-league level and will be the fifth option behind four talented outfielders, so don't expect much from him in terms of playing time or fantasy production.
