Schmidt to start Tuesday

If he’s feeling good and ready to go, we feel confident we can put him out there for 90 pitches or so Tuesday. We know he’s going to compete, and we’ll see what happens.”

With Schmidt back in the rotation, left-hander Mark Hendrickson returns to the bullpen after going 2-3 with a 4.17 ERA in 11 games, including eight starts

Schmidt expressed confidence in his health coming off Wednesday's game in San Bernardino, where he struck out seven in six innings and allowed two hits.

"I'm feeling good, and when I'm feeling good, I can [throw] all day long," he said. "I came out of it good, felt fine the next day. I told them how I feel each day. I'm ready to pitch anywhere they tell me."

Jason Schmidt, SP LA

News: Jason Schmidt, the Dodgers' primary offseason pitching staff addition, will return from a nearly seven-week layoff because of an inflamed right shoulder to start Tuesday night in San Diego. The Dodgers made the decision to return Schmidt to their rotation after he threw six shutout innings Wednesday for Class-A Inland Empire in a rehabilitation start, then followed that with an impressive bullpen session Saturday in Pittsburgh. "We really needed to see how that ball was coming out of his hand," manager Grady Little said. "Hopefully, he can continue feeling good. If he's feeling good and ready to go, we feel confident we can put him out there for 90 pitches or so Tuesday. We know he's going to compete, and we'll see what happens."

Analysis: Little doesn't know if Schmidt's velocity will return immediately - the right-hander once threw in the mid-90 mph range, but was down from that earlier this season. "I think it will gradually come back, if he's feeling good," Little said. The 34-year-old Schmidt gave up two hits, walked one and struck out seven in his Class-A start Wednesday. Schmidt, who signed a three-year, $47 million contract during the offseason, was 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA in three starts for the Dodgers before being sidelined. When healthy, he is capable of being a Fantasy productive player. It appears safe to return him to lineups for Fantasy Week 10 (June 4-10). Schmidt is on track to be a two-start option right off the bat with a second start scheduled against the Blue Jays during the June 8-10 weekend.

So, you think owners should start him or see how he fairs out for his 1st game back?

With Clemens out of his 2 starts and Schmidt possibly getting 2 starts I am seriously thinking of starting him.

I wouldn't start him against San Diego.
The Padres own Jason Schmidt.

I would never start any player coming off an injury, except maybe the Royals, but even then I'm not so sure (damn you Kazmir...)

I would wait one start. I feel like they're rushing him a little. He only had 1 rehab start and it was against single A.

I own him and I'll prob wait one start. I want to see how his velocity is his first start.

yeah i feel like they're rushing him too. he was throwing way under his normal velocity when he was "healthy", i can only imagine how he's gonna throw out of the gates this time. id definitely wait a start or two to see how the velocity is.
