Logan Schafer #1 in your program as well as #1 in your hearts had a phenomenal spring, and is pushing hard for a starting spot in the Brewers outfield. It's going to be tough for him, since two-thirds of the outfield is set barring injury, with 2013 All-Star Carlos Gomez in Center and 5 time All-Star and 2011 N.L. MVP Ryan Braun in Right.


Schafer's (above) only real chance to be "every day" is in Left where Kris Davis with only 104 days of MLB experience is hanging his hat. Davis is no slouch, he put up decent numbers this spring as well, batting .230 with 4 home runs (the most of any Brewer).

As far as Schafer's spring he saw action in 25 of 31 games, the second most next to Elian Herrera (26). Logan put up numbers that were good enough to get him to Milwaukee for the 2014 campaign. In his 58 at bats he collected 22 hits, scored 17 runs, drove in 8, stole 5 bases, hit one "round tripper" and 2 doubles, while only striking out 11 times. He batted .379, with an OBP (On Base Percentage) of .471 and slugged .569.

Throw in his his arm (no pun intended) and defensive game, and he is an extremely valuable asset to the team.

Manager Ron Roenicke admits it's hard to keep Schafer out of the line up:

We'll have to see how the season plays out, but one thing is for sure the Brewers definitely have their outfield covered.

Go Brewers!
