Clarke Schmidt solid in Yanks' win over Rays

by Chris Schommer | Yankees Correspondent | Sat, Apr 20th 7:35am EDT

Clarke Schmidt delivered a quality start, allowing just one earned run on seven hits while striking out seven across 5 1/3 innings in the Yankees' 5-3 victory over the Rays on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a high WHIP and BABIP that suggest he's been somewhat lucky to maintain a decent ERA, Schmidt's performance this season continues to be a mixed bag for fantasy managers. His high strikeout rate (10.4 K/9) remains a tantalizing asset, but the elevated WHIP (1.55) and BABIP (.404) indicate potential volatility in his future outings. Fantasy managers should consider him a risky play, depending on the matchup, as inconsistency might be part of his profile this season.
