Twins Reach Arbitration Agreement With Jordan Schafer


The Minnesota Twins reached deals through arbitration with a handful of eligible players last week. Only two players found themselves still at odds with the club. Both Jordan Schafer and Brian Duensing thought they were worth a bit more money. Today the Twins have reached an agreement with the outfielder.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported that, as expected, the Twins did in fact come to an agreement with Jordan Schafer. After both sides submitted their numbers, it was assumed that some sort of middle ground would be agreed upon.

With the sides agreeing to the $1.55 million number, the middle ground is exactly what was reached. The Twins avoid an arbitration settlement with their waiver claim outfielder, and they can turn their focus to Duensing. The same expectation should be had for Duensing, that both sides will reach an agreement prior to the February 1st cut off date.

MLB Trade Rumors projected Jordan Schafer at $1.5 million, coming very close. The site has a projection of $2.5 million for Duensing.
