Baby Brave back from suspension

Add this share

Jordan Schafer’s road to redemption began on Friday.

The 21-year-old center fielder with the cover boy looks – who also happens to be the No. One prospect for the Atlanta Braves – completed his 50-game suspension on Friday. Major League Baseball pulled the plug on the promising prospect in early April for allegedly using human growth hormones.

He returned to Class AA Mississippi over the weekend and is expected to hit the field in a few days. The 6-foot-1-inch, 190-pound player was named heir apparent to Andruw Jones during Spring Training, just before a new internal investigations unit of the MLB lowered the boom.

Still unresolved, though, is any explanation from Schafer on what happened. He’s talked publicly once, as has his father, and both would only refute the HGH charges with the weak explanation that the situation was misconstrued and they couldn’t comment further. Schafer really needs to come clean to dissipate the clouds hovering over him and his career.
