Yankees Starter to Hit IL, Out For Foreseeable Future

ANAHEIM, CA: The Yankees are placing starter Clarke Schmidt on the 15-day IL, retroactive to May 27, with a right lat strain. In correspondence, the Yankees are calling up Cody Morris from AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, per Jack Curry of YES Network.

Clarke Schmidt will be shut down 4-6 weeks with the lat strain, per Boone. That typically means around 4-6

weeks of buildup after that before he could return.

Schmidt, 28, has been a huge part of the Yankees pitching success, which ranks them top in baseball. Schmidt has pitched to a 2.52 ERA across 60.2 innings pitched.


Schmidt after his outing on Sunday: "I just felt physically a little - one of those outings where you don't feel like your best."


This obviously comes at a big price for the Yankees, whose pitching staff has already been lightened with the absence of reigning Cy Young Award winner, Gerrit Cole.

However, Gerrit Cole could make his return shortly as manager Aaron Boone told reporters yesterday that Cole “could” start a rehab assignment as soon as this coming week.
