Toronto Blue Jays pluck Bo Schultz off waivers from Diamondbacks


The name Bo Schultz wasn’t known in the minds of most Toronto Blue Jays fans prior to Tuesday afternoon. However, he’s going to gain some flashing interest in the next 24 hours after the team claimed him off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The team announced the roster move via a team press release.

As the tweet notes, adding Schultz to the 40-man roster brings the team’s tally to 38 players. However, Schutlz screams of a player the Blue Jays will use for roster flexibility down the road, and will likely try to sneak through waivers at some point this winter.

The 29-year-old is a 7-year minor league veteran, spending time in both the Athletics and Diamondbacks organizations. In 236 career appearances, the results have been somewhat middling, as Schultz sports a 4.37 ERA and 6.8 K/9 ratio.  Those numbers are somewhat misleading, as he was actually doing pretty well before getting roughed up in the Pacific Coast League.

  • In Triple-A, the right-hander went 10-10 with a disastrous 6.10 ERA, a 1.652 WHIP, and a 6.1 K/9 ratio in Reno over the past two seasons, with the D-Backs trying to shift him to a starting role this past season.

    The results weren’t much prettier when for some reason Arizona gave Schultz a look in the Major Leagues in four mop-up appearances. In 8 innings of work, Schultz was rocked for 13 hits and 7 earned runs.
