Schultz signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Schultz posted a 5.85 ERA with a 62:27 K:BB over 47.2 innings with Triple-A Omaha last season, but he has struggled in his limited major-league action, as he has a 5.86 ERA over 26 appearances between the Rays and Dodgers. The right-hander will likely serve as organizational depth for Oakland, but he could see some major-league action if injuries occur in the bullpen.
Schultz cleared waivers Sunday and was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Schultz was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Thursday but will remain with the organization for the time being after clearing waivers. The 28-year-old appeared in four major-league games this season, allowing four runs in five innings while striking out three.
Schultz was designated for assignment Thursday.
The Dodgers needed to make room on the 40-man roster with the return of Rich Hill, and Schultz was the chosen casualty. The 28-year-old pitched in four games for Los Angeles this season, allowing four runs in five innings.
Schultz was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.
Schultz spent just two days on the big-league roster, allowing four runs in two innings Sunday against the Nationals in his only appearance. Josh Sborz was recalled in a corresponding move.
Schultz was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Saturday's game against the Nationals.
Schultz has not allowed a run while striking out three in three innings thus far this season out of the big-league bullpen. Ross Stripling (biceps tendinitis) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Schultz was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Schultz pitched well in three relief appearances, fanning three and allowing just one hit over three scoreless innings of work. However, the Dodgers needed to clear a roster spot for the return of Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) from the injured list, and with Schultz pitching each of the last two days, he was the top candidate for a demotion.
The Dodgers recalled Schultz from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Los Angeles likely just brought up Schultz to get another fresh arm in the bullpen after JT Chargois -- who was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move -- worked in relief the past two days. Schultz made 22 appearances for the Rays in 2018, compiling a 5.64 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 30.1 innings.
Schultz was optioned to minor-league camp Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Schultz was designated for assignment earlier in the offseason by the Rays, prior to being dealt to the Dodgers. He made his major-league debut in 2018, but didn't impress, posting a 5.64 ERA and 1.86 WHIP across 30.1 innings. He's likely to serve as pitching depth out of the bullpen for the team this season.
Schultz was traded from the Rays to the Dodgers on Tuesday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Caleb Sampen, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The Rays were able to find a suitor for Schultz after the right-hander was designated for assignment last week. The 27-year-old made his major-league debut in 2018, struggling to a 5.64 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and 5.0 BB/9 in 30.1 innings. He did post an impressive 10.4 K/9 over that same stretch. Schultz will likely serve as pitching depth for the Dodgers in 2019.
Schultz was designated for assignment Friday to make room for new acquisition Oliver Drake, Juan Toribio of The Athletic reports.
Schultz pitched in the majors for the first time last season, finishing with an unimpressive 5.64 ERA in 30.1 innings. His 28.0 percent strikeout rate was quite good but wasn't enough to overcome a 13.6 percent walk rate or 29.0 percent groundball rate.
Schultz (2-2) suffered the loss against the Yankees on Thursday, allowing four earned runs, two hits and two walks over 0.2 innings. He struck out two.
Schultz served as the opener in Thursday's game while making his first career start in the big leagues, but he wasn't able to get out of the first frame. He gave up a run on a wild pitch after loading the bases, and then Miguel Andujar launched a three-run homer to chase him from the game with two outs in the first. With 30.1 innings under his belt so far in 2018, Schultz owns a 5.64 ERA with a 35:17 K:BB ratio.
Schultz will serve as the opener Thursday against the Yankees, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Schultz has pitched strictly out of the bullpen for the Rays this season, posting a 4.55 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB across 29.2 innings. He'll get the ball first in Thursday's series opener, though he figures to pitch just one or two innings before exiting.
Schultz (2-0) worked around a walk with one strikeout in a scoreless inning of work to earn his second win of the season Monday against Cleveland.
Schultz came on in the ninth with his team down one and tossed a scoreless inning before the Rays came up with two runs to win it in the bottom of the frame. He's now delivered four straight scoreless outings, but Schultz doesn't offer much fantasy value in his present role.
Schultz was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Schultz will offer additional bullpen depth throughout the final month of the season for the Rays. Across 12 appearances with the big club this season, the 27-year-old owns a 4.58 ERA and 23:12 K:BB in 19.2 frames.
Schultz was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday.
Schultz came up to the big leagues in early July to replace the injured Chaz Roe (knee) in the Rays' bullpen. However, with Roe expected to return Tuesday, Schultz will head back to the minors. The 27-year-old posted a 4.58 ERA with a 23:12 K:BB in 19.2 innings of work.
Schultz was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He'll give the Rays an extra arm out of the bullpen after Chaz Roe (knee) was placed on the 10-day disabled in a corresponding move. Schultz, who previously made his MLB debut for the Rays in late May, has posted a 6.91 ERA and 47:22 K:BB in 28.2 innings at Triple-A this season. He'll need to show improved control and command before manager Kevin Cash unleashes the right-hander in key spots late in games.
Schultz was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.
Schultz was effective in his 2018 big-league debut, striking out one in a perfect inning against the Athletics on Tuesday, but he'll head back to the minors in order to clear a roster spot for Wednesday's starter, Nathan Eovaldi. While his first stay in the majors was brief, Schultz's strong showing should afford him another opportunity with the big club sooner rather than later.
Schultz recorded his first hold in a win over the Athletics on Tuesday, striking out the side in a perfect seventh inning.
The hard-throwing right-hander acquitted himself well in his 2018 big-league debut, setting down the trio of Stephen Piscotty, the pinch-hitting Matt Joyce and Bruce Maxwell on swinging third strikes. Schultz encouragingly got through the frame on a relatively efficient 14 pitches and did not issue any walks, certainly an optimistic sign after he handed out 16 free passes in 15.1 innings with the Bulls before his promotion. While his stay at the major-league level may be abbreviated, Schultz has the ability to serve effectively in a seventh- or eighth-inning role while he's up.
The Rays recalled Schultz from Triple-A Durham on Sunday.
Schultz has delivered an eye-popping 29 strikeouts in 15.1 innings at Durham this season, but erratic command has largely undermined effectiveness. The right-hander has also yielded 29 hits and 16 walks, saddling him with a 9.98 ERA through 16 appearances. He'll likely only be in store for a brief stay in Tampa Bay with the Rays set to go with another "bullpen game" for Sunday's series finale with the Orioles.
The Rays optioned Schultz to the minor leagues Sunday.
While he battled a groin injury for a large portion of the past season, Schultz was limited to just 19.2 innings across stops at three minor-league affiliates. He entered spring training at full health, however, and should hold down a late-inning role at Triple-A Durham until the Rays believe the hard-throwing righty is ready to contribute in the big leagues.
