Twins outfielder Jordan Schafer returns to lineup Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The center fielder said Saturday he also had a stubbed big toe he suffered in an unfamiliar hotel room earlier in the year, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"It doesn't feel good," he said. "Between my foot and my knee, I just haven't felt good. I've had stuff that's hampered me where I haven't felt comfortable running. That's really why I haven't tried running at all (on the bases)."

He is hoping to be able to put his speed to good use once his toe is fully recovered.

"As soon that (toe) heals, obviously I want to run," said Schafer. "It's a big part of my game. I've just been battling that, but it will be all right. The swing feels a lot better. I feel way better at the plate."

Schafer is hitting .176 with two RBI in 51 at-bats this season.
