Schlereth inked a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Schlereth finished the 2018 season within Seattle's farm system at Triple-A Tacoma. He struggled in 12 appearances, posting a 5.40 ERA with a 9:8 K:BB over 8.1 innings as a reliever. While Schlereth seems unlikely to make the big-league roster, he'll add organizational depth for the Red Sox.
Schlereth was promoted to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Josh Kirshenbaum of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The right-hander climbs the organizational ladder after signing a farm deal June 2 and spinning a 1.35 ERA in 6.2 innings for Double-A Arkansas. Schlereth will occupy a spot closer to a possible callup while he works in relief for the Rainiers.
The Mariners signed Schlereth to a minor-league contract Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Schlereth joined the independent Atlantic League in early May, and didn't have to wait long before making his way back to a major-league organization. The 32-year-old is likely headed to Triple-A Tacoma to serve as organizational pitching depth.
Schlereth signed with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League on Thursday, The Press of Atlantic City reports.
The 32-year-old has a bit of major-league experience, producing a 4.35 ERA in 93 career innings pitched. Schlereth will now head to an independent league, likely with the hope of pitching well enough to make a comeback in affiliated baseball.
Schlereth signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays on Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.
Schlereth made appearances in just three games for Triple-A Iowa of the Cubs organization last season before being released, but it appears the Blue Jays will give him another shot. He'll likely begin the season in Triple-A again this season, but could be a candidate for recall should some any bullpen arms get injured.
