Schmidt Finishes Successful Rehab In Somerset; Sent To Scranton By Yankees


Custom Text

Long considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Yankees farm system, it would seem Clarke Schmidt’s stay in Somerset will be a short, but successful one.

The 25-year-old righty made his second and apparently final start for the Patriots on Wednesday evening, throwing 3 2/3 innings of two-run ball with one walk and one strikeout in the club’s 3-2 loss to the Portland Sea Dogs in the opener of their doubleheader at TD Bank Ballpark.

His fastball sat between 93-95 miles per hour, and he used a healthy mix of curveballs and changeups in-between.

“I felt good,” he told reporters in a statement through a team official.

“My goal coming into the game was to fill up the zone and throw more strikes, and I felt like I did that much better than the outing before. Other than a bad 0-2 pitch, I was very happy w/the outing.”

Following the game, Schmidt’s rehab assignment was ended, and the Yankees sent him to Triple-A Scranton.

Corey Kluber is set to rehab with Somerset tomorrow, while Luis Severino’s next start is officially TBD but believed to be taking place with Scranton.
