The right-hander gave up three runs and five hits in 4 2-3 innings, walked four, struck out two and had two wild pitches.
Schmidt's pitches topped out at 88 mph in his third start since being activated from the DL on June 5 after missing 45 games with bursitis in his right shoulder. He lasted just four innings against Toronto last Sunday.
"Something's just still not right," he said. "Everything's not quite there, so I keep experimenting. I just didn't feel like myself. The ball isn't coming out of my hand as smoothly as I'd like. It could be mechanical, it could be anything. But I'm not going to open a can of worms on this thing."
Many of Schmidt's changeups are staying flat instead of diving and his fastballs are running and cutting.
"There's still certain pitches that he's not comfortable throwing right now," pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said. "It's his slider and his curveball that he's not using as much as he probably would under normal circumstances, and he doesn't have his normal fastball. We're only seeing part of him."
The Dodgers on Sunday appeared to be in crisis management over what to do with pitcher Jason Schmidt and his troubling shoulder.

They wont use another lefty since they already have 2 there. And they cant go back to Bomko can they? ....can they?!!

With that manager? I'd be shocked. He's like Charlie Manuel; both idiots who cost their teams wins.
