Schafer signed a minor league contract with the Orioles on Thursday, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

Schafer slashed .238/.342/.317 for the Twins over 74 plate appearances last season. He spent most of the season in Triple-A Rochester, where he posted a .264/.340/.361 slash line in 244 plate appearances. If he earns a call-up to the Orioles next season, he'll only be expected to provide added outfield depth.
