The Atlanta Braves and Jordan Schafer have reunited after the team claimed the center fielder off waivers from the Houston Astros on Thursday.

The Atlanta Braves will have to replace Chipper Jones' production in 2013, and they also have decisions to make regarding Michael Bourn and Brian McCann. Will they look to a trade or free agency to bolster the roster?
