Rays Sign Jaime Schultz, Gavin CollinsJanuary 26, 2023 | 12:23 PM
The Tampa Bay Rays signed right-hander Jaime Schultz and catcher Gavin Collins to minor-league deals on Wednesday that include invitations to major-league spring training. Schultz didn't pitch at all last year while dealing with an oblique injury, but the former Rays prospect will return to Tampa as pitching depth in 2023. In 26 major-league outings (one start) with the Rays and Los Angeles Dodgers in two seasons, he has a 5.86 ERA (5.55 FIP) and 1.24 WHIP over 35 1/3 innings. Collins has yet to play in the big leagues. The 27-year-old backstop spent the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Columbus in the Cleveland Guardians organization and slashed .235/.326/.370 with a .696 OPS, four home runs, 16 RBI and 15 runs in 41 games.
