Jaime Matthew Schultz (born June 20, 1991) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Early years[edit]

Schultz attended Maple Hill High School in Castleton-on-Hudson, New York. Schultz was named to the All-New York State team for soccer, and also led the school's baseball and basketball teams to championships. For the baseball team, Schultz recorded 157 strikeouts in 71 innings pitched as a senior.[1] He enrolled at High Point University,[2] and was named to the All-Big South Conference's second team as a freshman, in 2010. He missed the 2011 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.[1]

Career[edit]

The Tampa Bay Rays selected Schultz in the 14th round of the 2013 MLB Draft.[3][4] After he signed with the Rays, he made his debut that same year for the Hudson Valley Renegades of the Class A-Short Season New York–Penn League[1] and spent the whole season there, going 1-2 with a 3.05 ERA in 44.1 innings pitched. Schultz played for the Bowling Green Hot Rods of the Class A Midwest League and Charlotte Stone Crabs of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League in 2014,[5] compiling a combined 4-1 record and 2.40 ERA in 14 starts between both teams. After the 2014 season, the Rays assigned Schultz to the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona Fall League.[6] Schultz spent the 2015 season with the Montgomery Biscuits of the Class AA Southern League[7][8] where he posted a 9-5 record with a 3.67 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 27 starts. Schultz was invited to spring training with the Rays in 2016 as a non-roster invitee.[9] He spent the 2016 season with the Durham Bulls of the Class AAA International League.[10] In 27 starts, he was 5-7 with a 3.58 ERA. The Rays added Schultz to their 40-man roster after the 2016 season.[11] In 2017, he began the season back with Durham but was placed on the disabled list on April 8 and missed nearly three months. He pitched only 19.2 innings in 2017. He began 2018 with Durham. He was 1-1 with a 9.98 ERA with 29 strikeouts in 15.1 innings pitching out of the bullpen prior with Triple-A Durham prior to his call-up.[12]

On May 27, 2018, Tampa Bay recalled Schultz.[13] He made his major league debut on May 29 in relief in the seventh inning against the Oakland Athletics, pitching one scoreless inning in which he struck out the side on 14 pitches.[14] However, he was sent back down to Durham after the game to make room for Nathan Eovaldi who was activated from the disabled list.[15] He was recalled back to Tampa on July 8th.[16]
