Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Throwing only fastballs

Schmidt (elbow) is throwing bullpens but is not tossing any pitches other than fastballs, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports. Schmidt continues to build up slowly, and a timeframe for his return remains uncertain. The fact that the right-hander isn't yet testing his elbow with any pitches other than fastballs suggests that he isn't particularly close to pitching in games again.

Schmidt (elbow) threw a bullpen session Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The 25-year-old has slowly been building up his arm by playing long toss over the past few weeks, but he's now thrown his first bullpen session since suffering the elbow strain in February.

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Progress remains slow

Schmidt (elbow) has played long toss up to 120 feet but still hasn't resumed throwing off a mound, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports. Schmidt is very slowly working his way back from an elbow strain suffered back in February, and the organization appears to have no desire to rush his return. Manager Aaron Boone has indicated that the right-hander is doing well, but given his current rehab status, it seems unlikely that Schmidt will be able to return to game action before late June.

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Yet to throw beyond 100 feet

Schmidt (elbow) has been playing long toss at around 100 feet, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports. Manager Aaron Boone indicated Friday that Schmidt is doing well, but the right-hander has yet to progress beyond long toss. The Yankees are likely to be cautious with Schmidt's recovery from a a right elbow strain, though they still expect him to make an impact with the big club at some point during the season. He'll likely start the campaign at Triple-A when he's ready to pitch.

Yankees: Clarke Schmidt injury update is positive but lengthy

The New York Yankees are coming off their third consecutive victory and fourth win in five games against the Cleveland Indians on Saturday afternoon by a score of 2-1. While their offense still hasn’t enjoyed that breakout performance, their pitching has been stellar, with Gerrit Cole lasting seven innings in the win, recording 11 strikeouts, and allowing just one run on three hits. He currently has a 1.71 ERA this season and has already put himself in the conversation as one of the best pitchers to ever wear the pinstripes.
