Meet Your Astros - Jordan Schafer
Drafted in the 3rd round of the 05 draft by the Atlanta Braves, Jordan came straight out of high school and that in my opinion didn't help him grow as a player and as an adult. Jordan thrived in the minors but in 08 he was suspended 50 games by MLB for HGH use. He since then seemed to be headed on the right track then in 2011 got traded to the Astros in the Bourne deal all was going good until October of last year when he got busted with marijuana and marijuana peanut butter cups. Since then he has been quoted saying he made bad choices and is willing to work harder than ever to prove his keep. With all that said Schafer is a capable starting center fielder who can hit for power and average as well as having a good jump on the ball and excellent range. His defense is something the Astros will be able to use as there starting pitching will give Schafer plenty of opportunities to run around in the outfield.
