Blue Jays and Brewers compete a trade

The Toronto Blue Jays have received RHP Paxton Schultz from the Milwaukee Brewers as the player to be named later to complete the February 15 trade of OF Derek Fisher.

Schultz, 23, was selected by the Brewers in the 14th round of the 2019 First-Year Player Draft. The Utah Valley State product pitched with the Rookie-level Rocky Mountain Vibes after his draft, going 1-3 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The 6-3, 205 lb. right-hander also played in nine games for the Brisbane Bandits of the Australian Baseball League in 2020 where he kept a 3.29 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 13.2 innings of work.
