Bo Schultz is the newest member of the Blue Jays’ pitching staff after Toronto claimed the right-hander off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday.
Schultz debuted with the Diamondbacks in 2014, appearing in four games out of the bullpen. The 29-year-old pitched eight big-league innings, allowing 13 hits and seven earned runs while walking one and striking out five. He averaged 95.3 m.p.h. with his fastball while also mixing in a slider and change-up.
Schultz, who signed with the Oakland Athletics as an amateur free agent in 2008, signed with Arizona in 2012. In seven minor league seasons, he has a 4.37 ERA with 6.8 strikeouts per nine innings and 3.4 walks per nine innings in 236 games, including 50 starts.
