The Atlanta Braves have re-acquired former outfielder, Jordan Schafer, via waivers from the Houston Astros. Schafer was originally drafted by the Braves in the third round of the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft.
Schafer was traded to the Astros for center fielder Michael Bourn, July 30, 2011, in a package that also included LHP Brett Oberholtzer, RHP Paul Clemens and RHP Juan Abreu.
The 26-year old Schafer, who played 106 games last season with the Astros, hit .211 and stole 27 bases.
The Braves also phased three players off their 40-man roster. Those players are left-handed pitcher Robert Fish, right-handed pitcher Erik Cordier and catcher J.C. Boscan.
Boscan has elected to test the free agent waters.
