News: Schafer isn't in the lineup Monday in Kansas City, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: An everyday player, Schafer has recorded hits in five of the past eight contests, batting .333 (7-for-21) with one RBI, four runs, four steals, and three walks versus three strikeouts. He'll yield center field to Danny Santana, while Eduardo Escobar covers shortstop.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Ron Gardenhire has given Schafer the green light to steal bases at all times, unless he's specifically told not to go, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Schafer has six stolen bases in eight games with the Twins and it sounds like he'll remain aggressive with Gardenhire's blessing.(RotoWire, )

News: Schafer is out of the lineup Wednesday in Houston, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Since he was claimed off waivers on Aug. 3, Schafer has started seven of eight games in the corner outfield for the Twins, batting .273/.333/.364 with one RBI, three runs scored, and six stolen bases in 22 at-bats. In his stead, Eduardo Nunez will cover left field and hit sixth in the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Schafer got another start, going 2-for-3 with a run scored, one RBI, a walk, and a stolen base in a losing effort against Oakland on Saturday night. Impact: Claimed just a week ago off of waivers, Schafer batted ninth but contributed across the stat sheet. He's only hitting .185 on the year but has 18 swipes, so he could be a source of cheap steals if he continues to get playing time.(RotoWire, )
