Jordan Schafer asks manager for more playing time


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Braves backup outfielder Jordan Schafer met with Fredi Gonzalez about his yearning for increased playing time, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported.

Schafer has just 19 plate appearances all season and is 3 for 18 at the plate. The presence of Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and B.J. Upton, who is in the second year of a lucrative five-year contract, has kept Schafer glued to the bench. But Gonzalez praised him for his attitude.

"I told him how proud I was of him, of his work ethic - he's ready to play, ready to help the team," Gonzalez said. "Whether he pinch-runs, steals a base, or fills in on defense. And I know it's a tough spot. I said, it's early, and it's hard to take someone out of those spots."

Schafer is hitless in his last seven at-bats.
