Blue Jays Claim Bo Schultz off waivers from the Diamondbacks

Jamie Sabau

The Blue Jays have picked up right-handed pitcher Bo Schultz off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Schultz pitched in 4 games with the Diamondbacks (his first MLB action). In 8 innings he allowed 13 hits, 1 walk and had 5 strikeouts. At Triple-A Reno, Schultz pitched in 28 games, starting 23. He was 10-8 with a 6.18 ERA. In 135.1 innings, he allowed 174 hits, 46 walks with 82 strikeouts. I guess it is the PCL, but those aren't numbers that make me happy to have him on the team.

Bo is 29 years old, he was a amateur free agent signing by the A's back in 2008 (which means he was passed up in the draft)

I'd imagine the Jays picked him up hoping that when they waiver him off the 40-man, he clears waivers.

Minor Leaguer points out that Bo Knows Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman, they played in the Arizona Fall League together last year, as members of the Salt River Rafters:

The Blue Jays now have 38 players on their 40-man roster.
