  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Fans seven in no-decision

    Schmidt came away with a no-decision in Friday's 5-3 win over the Rays, allowing one run on seven hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.

    The right-hander blanked Tampa Bay for five frames before Richie Palacios tagged him for a solo shot in the sixth. Schmidt exited the game in line for a loss before the Yankees rallied for five runs in the seventh. He generated a massive 37 called or swinging strikes among his 102 pitches, but Schmidt is still looking to iron out some efficiency issues as he hasn't completed six innings in any of his four starts so far in 2024. He'll take a 3.15 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 23:8 K:BB through 20 innings into his next outing, which lines up to be a juicy home matchup against the A's next week.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Picks up first win

    Schmidt (1-0) earned the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and five walks over five innings. He struck out seven.

    Schmidt issued at least three walks for the second straight game but otherwise pitched well at Cleveland with 13 swinging strikes on 85 pitches. The right-hander also set a season high in strikeouts, and he's given up three runs or fewer in each of his first three outings of the campaign. Schmidt will carry a 3.68 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB over 14.1 innings into his next start, which is likely to come versus Tampa Bay next weekend.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: NYY-CLE postponed Friday

    Schmidt and the Yankees won't play against the Guardians on Friday since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    The game will be made up via a split doubleheader Saturday. Schmidt will start Game 1 of the twin bill while Cody Poteet will be called up to start the nightcap, according to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Shaky over 4.1 innings

    Schmidt allowed two runs on six hits and three walks over 4.1 innings in the Yankees' win against Toronto on Saturday.

    Schmidt was getting knocked around early but managed to avoid sustaining any significant damage, as he limited the Blue Jays to just two runs over his 4.1 innings of work. The right-hander allowed the leadoff man to reach base in four of the five innings in which he appeared and he's now given up 13 hits over 9.2 innings this season. Despite those alarming stats, Schmidt has held his opponents to three runs or fewer in each of his first two outings.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: No-decision in 2024 debut

    Schmidt didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Houston, going 5.1 innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and no walks. He struck out five.

    Schmidt held the Astros in check Sunday, yielding merely two extra-base hits. The pair of knocks came via a Jose Altuve homer in the third and an RBI double by Kyle Tucker in the sixth that ended Schmidt's day. The 27-year-old is entering his second year as a full-time starter and should remain at the back end of the Yankees fivesome even after Gerrit Cole (elbow) comes off the 60-day IL. Schmidt is expected to take the mound next weekend during a homestand against Toronto.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Adds pitch to arsenal

    Schmidt is throwing a new split-finger changeup this spring, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Schmidt threw a changeup on only 1.5 percent of his pitches last season, and when he did go to the offering, batters knocked it around to the tune of a .429 batting average. The right-hander has since worked on changing his grip on the pitch, modeling the adjustment on Blue Jays hurler Kevin Gausman. Of course, the Yankees would be ecstatic if Schmidt's results are anything close to Gausman's, but even if the new offering brings less dramatic improvement it could help the younger hurler bring stability to the back of the team's rotation. Schmidt posted a mediocre 4.64 ERA and 1.35 WHIP along with a 149:46 K:BB last season, but he gave an injury-riddled staff 159 innings, and manager Aaron Boone said in late February that he is guaranteed a spot in New York's Opening Day rotation.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Locked into rotation spot

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Schmidt is guaranteed a spot in the rotation, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Schmidt made 32 starts (33 appearances) for the Yankees last season, flashing promise but ultimately settling for a pedestrian 4.64 ERA and 149:46 K:BB over 159 innings. The Yanks will be hoping the 28-year-old takes a step forward in 2024 with a full season of big-league starting experience under his belt.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Settles with Yankees

    Schmidt signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Schmidt got his first substantial chance as a starter in the majors last season, and he posted an uninspiring 4.64 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 159 frames. His primary problem was the long ball (1.4 HR/9), though he managed a decent 14.8 K-BB%. That suggests there's some chance for him to see improved results in 2024, assuming he can stick in the rotation.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Another four-inning outing

    Schmidt did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits over four innings in a 5-2 victory over the Royals. He struck out three without issuing any walks.

    The 27-year-old hurler limited the damage to a run-scoring single by Nelson Velazquez in the first frame and a Salvador Perez solo homer in the third, but he was removed after just four innings for the second consecutive outing. Schmidt enjoyed a solid 14-start stretch between May 25 and Aug. 8, during which he posted a 6-2 record with a 3.09 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 56:15 K:BB across 70 innings. However, the right-hander faded down the stretch, accumulating a 5.73 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across his final nine starts (44 innings), and he will close out his 2023 campaign with a record of 9-9, a 4.64 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 149:46 K:BB in 159 innings.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Goes just four innings Monday

    Schmidt allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three batters over four innings in a no-decision against Arizona on Monday.

    The only runs Schmidt allowed came on an Alek Thomas double in the first inning. However, after a clean second frame, the right-handed hurler labored in the third and fourth, allowing a pair of runners in each inning. He didn't return for the fifth after having thrown 79 pitches. This was Schmidt's shortest outing since Aug. 14, when he gave up eight runs over 2.1 frames against Atlanta. He figures to have one more start remaining this season, which lines up to come against the Royals over the weekend.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Struggles against Blue Jays

    Schmidt (9-9) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks over five innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out one.

    It's been a tough stretch for Schmidt, who's pitched to a 5.48 ERA over his last four starts (21.1 innings). He was hurt by the home run ball Tuesday -- three of Toronto's runs came on a pair of homers, including a George Springer blast to lead off the game. Overall, Schmidt sports a 4.65 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and 143:43 K:BB through 30 starts (151 innings) this season. The 27-year-old right-hander will look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for this weekend against Arizona.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Takes no-decision in nightcap

    Schmidt allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out three batters over 5.1 innings in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against Boston.

    Schmidt had to wait awhile to make this start -- it was originally scheduled for Monday but got pushed back due to a pair of rainouts. He fell behind 2-0 in the first frame but recovered enough to last 5.1 innings and depart with a lead, though he had to ultimately settle for a no-decision. Schmidt gave up exactly three earned runs for his third straight start, though this was arguably the least impressive of that trio as he struck out just three batters compared to a combined 13 across the other two. Barring any more weather issues, he's set to face Toronto at home next week in his next scheduled start.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Start postponed again

    Schmidt won't make his scheduled start after Wednesday's game against Boston was postponed due to inclement weather.

    After having his start pushed back from Monday due to rain, poor weather conditions will force Schmidt to wait a bit longer before making his next start. The Yankees and Red Sox will play a doubleheader Thursday, and Schmidt will start the nightcap.

    Schmidt is now slated to toe the rubber Wednesday. Randy Vasquez will start Game 1 of Tuesday's twin bill and Carlos Rodon is set to handle the nightcap, per Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.
