Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Optioned to Triple-A

Schmidt was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday. The Yankees traded for Frankie Montas and Lou Trivino earlier in the day, so they need to clear space on the active roster. Schmidt has a 2.40 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 30 innings across 16 MLB appearances this year.

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Another three-inning save

Schmidt allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five across three scoreless innings to earn the save Saturday against the Royals. Schmidt recorded a three-inning save for his second consecutive outing, this time maintaining a six-run lead. Though low-leverage save chances are often fluky, the Yankees seem to be making a choice to use Schmidt in this manner since Michael King (elbow) was lost for the season. As a result, Schmidt could be a sneaky source of a handful of saves in the final two months of the season. He'll also help with ratios, as he has maintained a 2.67 ERA and 1.19 WHIP across 27 innings on the campaign.

Michael King and Clarke Schmidt have opened up the Yankees’ roster flexibility

Not many teams are afforded the opportunity to put clear-cut major league starting pitchers in their bullpen. It takes a few different things working out all at the same time. The first factor is pitching depth, and I’m not just talking a bunch of pitchers worthy of being on a major league roster. I’m talking a full rotation, bullpen, and upper-level minor league’s worth of good pitchers. The second is health — you never know what might happen with pitching. Everybody can do down at the same time or everybody can be healthy at the same time. The last factor is coaching/player development. You have to know what players can work in what situations and make sure all parties involved understand what each pitcher brings to the table.

Yankees fans don’t need to be up in arms over Clarke Schmidt option

Let’s enjoy the New York Yankees series win over the Tampa Bay Rays, shall we? A comeback effort capped by a Jose Trevino game-winning homer, powered by a two HR game from Aaron Judge, with a little bit of boneheaded misplays by Taylor Walls. What’s to complain about?

Yankees option Clarke Schmidt, add Albert Abreu in flurry of moves

The Yankees were busy this afternoon, swinging a deal with the Rays and rejiggering their roster in the process. The club announced they’d sent right-handed pitcher David McKay to the Rays in exchange for cash considerations, while also optioning Clarke Schmidt to Triple-A and adding Albert Abreu to the active roster.

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Sent to Triple-A

The Yankees optioned Schmidt to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. After striking out five while tossing three scoreless innings last Thursday in a spot start against the Rays, Schmidt moved back to the bullpen this week when Luis Severino was cleared to return from the COVID-19-related injured list. Schmidt appeared in both of the past two games and gave up one earned run over 1.2 innings, and he'll now be moved off the 26-man active roster with the Yankees needing to clear room for waiver pickup Albert Abreu. It's unclear if the Yankees plan to have Schmidt stretch out for starting duty at Triple-A or if he'll continue working as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen.

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Clarke Schmidt vs. Jalen Beeks

The Yankees thought that they would get to throw the capable Luis Severino out on the mound to go for the sweep of the division rival Rays tonight, but unfortunately, Sevy’s sick. He was placed on the COVID-IL this afternoon after experiencing symptoms yesterday, so instead, the Yankees will ask Clarke Schmidt to fill in.
