Schmidt To Scranton

(PR) (Trenton, NJ) – The Trenton Thunder, Double-A Affiliate of the New York Yankees, announce that RHP Josh Schmidt has been promoted to Triple A Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre. The transaction leaves the Trenton 24-man active roster at two below its maximum.

Schmidt, a 15th round selection of the Yankees in 2005 out of the University of the Pacific, has appeared in 15 games for Trenton this year, compiling a 2-2 record with a 1.59 ERA. The righty began the year in Triple A where he went 2-1 with a 1.17 ERA in five games.

The Thunder will return home to Waterfront Park Friday to kick-start a six-game homestand. Game one of a three-game series with the Binghamton Mets begins at 7:05 PM. Trenton will turn to RHP Craig Heyer (5-3, 2.78), while the B-Mets will counter with RHP Bradley Holt (2-4, 3.67). Tune-in to the game on 91.3 WTSR-FM and on trentonthunder.com. The SBLI Pre-Game Show with Jay Burnham and Hank Fuerst begins at 6:45 PM.

The first 1,500 fans to Friday’s game at Waterfront Park will receive Thunder Baseball Card Sets presented by Verizon Wireless.

    I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to hear how the roster fills out.
    Maybe Bleich or Horne?

    Good Luck to Josh !!!!!

  3. Craig NJ Says:

    Any injury updates lately? Have you heard anything about Horne or anyone else on the DL?

    When I hear stuff, I always get it out on here or via Twitter…haven’t heard anything new as of yet.

    Mike -curious why the Yankees dont call up this guy, Eric Wordkemper, or George Kontos with all there current injuries. Their minor league stats are much better than Sanit or Marquez. Is there a reason the Yanks dont believe in these guys?

  6. thunderbaseball Says:

    Kontos has the most legitimate shot of the three. I don’t think Schmidt and Wordekemper are viewed as any more than org. guys, fair or unfair

  7. shawn Says:

    thats a shame, all three are putting up great numbers. I guess they will have better luck with minor league free agency getting them to a different team. Are all three eligible after this year or no?

    Believe so, yes.
