Reese didn't elaborate on where exactly Schmidt stands in his recovery from a right elbow strain, but the 25-year-old has apparently steered clear of any setbacks since beginning a throwing program more than a week ago. Since the Yankees moved Schmidt to the 60-day injured list prior to Opening Day, he won't be eligible for reinstatement until late May, but Reese appears confident the right-hander will make an impact for the big club at some point in 2021. Once deemed healthy, Schmidt will most likely report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
