Twins claim OF Schafer off waivers from Braves

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.
