Here are the day’s minor moves:
- Former Brewers outfielder Logan Schafer has signed a minor league pact with the Nationals, according to the Baseball America minor league free agent tracker (h/t to Jim Goulart of Brewerfan.net, on Twitter). The 29-year-old, who hits from the left side, owns a .212/.286/.319 career slash line in 646 MLB plate appearances over the past five seasons. He’s generally been much more productive in the upper minors, though 2015 was a rough season all around. Schafer is capable of playing center field, where the Nats have a need, and both he and fellow minor league signee Chris Heisey could factor into the team’s plans up the middle depending upon how the offseason and spring camp progress.
