Schuster signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Saturday. After seven seasons in the minor leagues, Schuster finally broke through to the majors in 2016, making 11 appearances between Oakland and Philadelphia. The results left a lot to be desired (18 earned runs in 8.2 innings), but Schuster posted a 1.21 ERA and 9.3 K/9 at the Triple-A level and will provide the Dodgers with quality organizational depth at the very least.
Schuster has elected free agency. Schuster was outrighted off the Phillies' roster last week. He had an 18.69 ERA in 8.2 innings between Oakland and Philadelphia this season, but was much better in the minors. He shouldn't have a problem finding an opportunity with another club this offseason.
Schuster was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. Schuster was excellent as a reliever in the minors, but he simply couldn't get things going in the majors. The left-hander is only 25 years old, so he could garner some consideration in the future if the Phillies need a left-hander out of the bullpen, but he'll act as organizational depth for the time being.
The Phillies claimed Schuster off waivers from the Athletics and optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports. Schuster was having a fantastic season previously at Triple-A with Nashville, posting a 1.16 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP in 38.2 innings. The 25-year-old struggled in his short stint in Oakland before being designated for assignment on Wednesday. Expect to see Schuster up with the big league club in Philadelphia when rosters expand in September.
Schuster was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. Schuster has made four appearances with the A's earlier this season, giving up eight earned runs on nine hits and three walks over 4.2 innings of work. He has faired much better with Nashville, posting a 1.16 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP during 38.2 innings. In a corresponding move, the club optioned Dillon Overton to Nashville.
