Take one look at the Braves clubhouse these days. It's there that you'll see how Jordan Schafer is a changed man.

Jordan Schafer got first base - the first base he touched in Philadelphia on his first major league homer - sent to him by the Phillies. He was pretty excited about that. Cool gesture by the Phillies. Jordan knows Charlie Manuel because they both live in the Winter Haven, Fla. area, but he’s not sure if Manuel was behind it or who. But pretty classy.

From Carroll Rogers on a classy move by the Phillies...

Baseball America: Prospect Q&A: Jordan Schafer

"I really don't have any idea what happened. I mean, I have probably more information that most people just because it was about me, but it's a bad situation. I hope that by next year I really don't get any more questions about this; I hope it's more in the past. For me being able to move on mentally, just let that go in the past, it's over with. People are gonna say what they want still. I still get crap all the time in the stands, people saying stuff, and I 100 percent understand that. What happened is unfortunate. It's not what people think. I didn't do something illegal to make me better. I'm the same player I was last year. I didn't do anything to increase my performance last year. If you ask anybody in the organization, ask the people that have been around me, they know how hard I work. They know my workouts in the offseason. (Former Braves and current Rangers shortstop) Elvis Andrus, he's my best friend, he came and stayed with me in the offseason. (Myrtle Beach shortstop) Brandon Hicks came and stayed with me in the offseason, worked out with me, and our workouts are like 10 hours a day. Nobody matches those workouts. You can go anywhere. I mean, people work out for two hours a day and they think that's a hard workout. It's more than just going to the field—there's so many different aspects that you have to improve on. If people want to know how I get better, if you want to come out in the offseason and watch me do my workouts, I'm more than happy—come out and watch me. Come out for a week, watch the whole a week. Anybody that wants to come out and watch, come out and watch, I have no problem with it, if they really want to know how I've gotten so much better."
