The Yankees recalled Schmidt from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. He will start the series finale against the Mets.
The righty will make his first big-league appearance of 2021. He's pitched well in four games with the Triple-A club this season, posting a 3.00 ERA and 20:4 K:BB in 15 innings. Schmidt will presumably return to the minors after Sunday's outing, but a strong performance could earn him another start with the Yankees in these last few weeks of the regular season.
