Atlanta Braves’ Jordan Schafer Diagnosed with Stress Fracture in Foot
Jordan Schafer, outfielder for the Atlanta Braves, has been out with a foot injury since June 26 when he fouled a ball off of his right foot.
X-rays just after the injury didn’t show any fractures, so the Braves thought they would have Schafer back and ready to play very soon. However, an MRI revealed on Friday, July 12, that Schafer actually has a stress fracture in his foot, an injury more serious than what they thought.
This means Schafer will be out for longer than previously anticipated. For a fracture like the Scafer has, rehabilitation typically takes about six weeks.
So if everything goes as planned, Schafer should be ready to get back on the field in about four weeks since he has already been out for more than two. That would make his return to the game land in about the middle of August.
Cases such as this one show the importance of having an MRI for a diagnosis of these sorts of injuries. X-rays do not always catch stress fractures right away, so an MRI or a bone scan may be needed for diagnosis.
