INF Justin Schafer and RHP Michael Weldon have been released
"Keeper" info on Justin:
111. Justin Schafer:
7-7-10 – Stock Up – Schafer is one of a handful of 2010 draft picks that are making some noise for K-Port. His stats for the short season so far are very impressive: .366/.409/.512/.921, 41-AB, .146-ISOP, .441-BABIP
8-5-10: - 2B Justin Schafer (.333/.393/.444.837 in 126-AB)has been transferred from Kingsport to Brooklyn. - this is a well earned promotion for the draft pick out of UC Davis. It should be interesting to see who gets time at second, Schafer or J.B. Brown, who is currently hitting a decent .287 for the Cyclones.
8-9-10: - stock up – Schafer was recently promoted to brooklyn after going .333/.393/.444/.837 for Kingsport in 1256-AB. He led off yesterday for the Clones, playing shortstop, going 3-5, with two runs batted in. Just what the Cyclones needed was another bat.
9-29-10: - 2011 forecast: - Schafer had a wonderful 2010 season in Kingsport and got a taste of Brooklyn near the end of the season, going .227 in 44 at bats. There are a lot of second basemen ahead of him, including the Cyclones full time guy this past season, J.B. Brown, who hit .308. Schafer also plays SS, but Rylan Sandoval is ahead of him there. My guess is he will return to Brooklyn for a starting position in 2011.
