Santana placed on DL; Schafer called up

TORONTO -- Danny Santana is heading to the disabled list after a first-inning miscue forced the center fielder from Sunday afternoon's 9-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

Santana and Robbie Grossman were both chasing a fly ball off the bat of Jose Bautista when they collided in left-center field. Santana suffered an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder and is heading back to Minnesota to be re-evaluated.

The Twins have selected the contract of outfielder Logan Schafer from Triple-A Rochester, and the 29-year-old will join the club on Monday in Cleveland.

"We talked about the other day our communication with balls in the air, priority positions and people we need to take charge," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "I know it's a loud park, but you'd like to think that ball would be caught."

Eddie Rosario replaced Santana in the bottom of the second and finished the game 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Rosario, who was initially given the day off, finished the series against the Blue Jays going 4-for-11 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Schafer is hitting .264 with seven doubles, four home runs and 19 RBIs in 64 games with the Red Wings this season.

Originally a third-round pick of the Brewers, Schafer appeared in 69 games with Milwaukee last season hitting .221 with six doubles, a home run and six RBIs. He has yet to appear in a Major League game this season.
