Schultz Goes Six Strong in No-Decision
Maple Hill graduate Jaime Schultz took a no-decision on Wednesday night as the Durham Bulls beat the Buffalo Bison by a score of 3-2.
Schultz went six innings, allowed just four hits, and one earned run. He had four walks and supplemented those with seven strikeouts.
Schultz is now 3-1 with a 2.54 ERA in his first season at AAA. He was an all-star at the AA level a season ago, striking out 168 batters in 135 innings for the Montgomery Biscuits.
The Rays' farmhand doesn't figure to factor into the Tampa Bay Major League plans this season, but if he keeps performing he could force the Rays' hand to start the 2017 season. He's a hard thrower who can start or relieve. He's between 92-96 MPH on the mound with a good breaking ball and has developed a change-up.
Schultz, along with Jeff Hoffman (Shaker High School/Rockies), are both Capital Region natives who are knocking on the door of the Major Leagues.
