Schafer's contract was purchased from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Schafer will provide the Twins with some depth in the outfield after Danny Santana suffered a shoulder sprain in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays that will require a DL stint. The 29-year-old Schafer offers a capable glove in the outfield, but he's made a minimal impact with the bat over 646 plate appearances at the major-league level, putting together a .212/.286/.319 batting line.
