BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-Only Leagues and Very Deep Mixed Leagues

ANALYSIS: Jordan Schafer has been off to the races since debuting in Minnesota back on Aug. 5th. The Twins claimed the fleet-footed outfielder after he was placed on waivers by the Braves, which has led to him becoming the strong side of a center field platoon over the past couple of weeks. As evidenced by a career .615 OPS, Schafer is not a huge threat with a bat in his hands. However, when he takes to the basepaths, the story changes. Over 11 games with the Twins so far, the fifth-year big leaguer is batting .281 (9-for-32) to go along with a .343 OBP and six stolen bases. For those in AL-Only or deep mixed format that are desperately searching for speed, Schafer is certainly worth a look as he is owned in just one percent of Yahoo! Leagues and three percent of ESPN Leagues.
