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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Notches ninth victory
Schmidt (9-8) earned the win over Detroit on Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six batters over 6.1 innings.
Schmidt gave up a run on two hits in the first inning, then rolled through the following five frames, at one point retiring 16 straight hitters. The right-hander had his final line tarnished a bit during the seventh, when he gave up three hits and two runs while retiring just one batter, but he was still able to finish with a quality start and a win. Schmidt came into the contest without a victory over his previous four appearances, a span during which he posted a 6.52 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 19.1 innings. In his first full season as a starter, he's posted a 4.54 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 139:38 K:BB across 140.2 frames.... See More ... See Less

Schmidt tossed 4.2 innings in a no-decision against Detroit on Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven batters.
Schmidt was solid through four frames, holding the Tigers scoreless while yielding just two hits. The right-hander couldn't keep it going in the fifth, as Zack Short led off the inning with a solo shot and Detroit scored twice more before Schmidt was lifted with two outs. This was just the second time in his past nine starts that Schmidt has failed to complete five innings, and he now has a 4.56 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 133:38 K:BB over 134.1 frames on the season....

Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Tough-luck loss
Schmidt (8-8) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits over 6.2 innings against the Rays. He struck out five without issuing a walk.
Two of the three runs charged to Schmidt were unearned and the Yankees' offense didn't provide any run support, resulting in an unfortunate loss for the 27-year-old. Aside from a bad outing against Atlanta on Aug. 14, Schmidt has been impressive since the All-Star break, posting a 4-1 record with a 3.20 ERA and 0.97 WHIP across 39.1 innings in his other seven second-half starts. The right-handed hurler is currently slated to face Detroit on the road next week.... See More ... See Less

Overall, the 27-year-old right-hander is 8-7 this season with a 4.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 121:35 K:BB across 25 starts (123 innings).

Schmidt's ERA is up to 4.76 with a 1.36 WHIP and 113:33 K:BB across 24 starts (117.1 innings) this season.

Despite allowing just four hits and fanning seven batters, Schmidt fell two outs shy of a quality start and was pulled at 88 pitches. His lone blemish on the day came on a solo homer by Andrew Benintendi, the sixth long ball Schmidt has allowed in as many appearances. Tuesday's outing also marked his 14th consecutive start allowing three or fewer runs, a streak that dates back to May 14. The 27-year-old is expected to take the mound against the Marlins this weekend.... See More ... See Less
