Athletics designated LHP Patrick Schuster for assignment.

Schuster was called up on August 6, but it was a brief cup of coffee. In 6 2/3 innings this season, he has allowed eight runs. The 25-year-old southpaw does not hold tangible fantasy value, even if he is able to latch on with another club.

Royals claimed LHP Patrick Schuster off waivers from the Padres.

The Astros selected Schuster from the Diamondbacks in December's Rule 5 Draft and then flipped him to the Padres in the Anthony Bass deal. The 23-year-old was placed on waivers on Monday after he didn't make the team, so now he's on the move again. It looks like he has a chance to beat out Francisley Bueno for a left-handed specialist role.

Padres placed LHP Patrick Schuster on waivers.

Schuster posted a 2.25 ERA over eight Cactus League appearances, but it wasn't enough to convince the Padres to carry the Rule 5 pick on their roster. The southpaw will go back to the Diamondbacks if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Astros selected LHP Patrick Schuster from the Diamondbacks with the No. 1 pick in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft; traded him to the Padres to complete the Anthony Bass deal.

The Padres will get a 23-year-old that they hope can be a LOOGY in 2014. Schuster, Arizona's 13th-round pick in 2009, likely still holds the affection of A.J. Hinch and Josh Byrnes, who lead San Diego's front office. Schuster is a low-angle southpaw -- which helps him torment left-handed hitters -- who once threw four straight no-hitters in high school. He had a 1.83 ERA and 45/18 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings this year with High-A Vasalia.
