Patrick Bowen Schultz (born September 25, 1985) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2014 with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Career[edit]

Schultz attended Northwestern University, and played college baseball for the Northwestern Wildcats. He had a 3-10 win–loss record and a 9.13 earned run average in college.[1] Undrafted, he signed as a free agent with the Oakland Athletics. On September 7, 2009, Schultz was named Northwest League Pitcher of the Week.[2]

Schultz was released from the Athletics organization in 2011 and spent the remainder of the season in independent baseball. He then signed with the Diamondbacks before the 2012 season.[3] The Diamondbacks added Schultz to their 40-man roster after the 2013 season.[4]

Schultz competed for a spot on the Diamomdbacks' Opening Day roster in spring training in 2014. With the ability to carry ten relief pitchers on the roster for a two-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Sydney, Australia,[5] he was named to their Opening Day roster,[6] with the expectation that the Diamondbacks would assign him to the Reno Aces of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League after the series.[5] He made his MLB debut on March 22, 2014.[7] Schultz pitched eight innings for the Diamondbacks, in which he allowed seven earned runs on 13 hits and one walk, while recording five strikeouts.[8]

On October 7, 2014, the Toronto Blue Jays acquired Shultz from the Diamondbacks on waivers.[8]
