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.
