Royals claim Schuster, so much for four consecutive no-nos

The Kansas City Royals have claimed Patrick Schuster – the man who threw four consecutive no-hitters in high school – off waivers from the San Diego Padres.

Schuster, 23, had accomplished the feat while pitching for Mitchell High School in New Port Richey, Fla.

This spring, the lefty allowed two earned runs and 11 hits in eight innings of work (2.25 ERA). Schuster didn’t really have a shot at entering the rotation to see if he could accomplish a no-no at the Major League level, but he was looking to earn a spot in the bullpen.
