Schmidt’s rehab could be extended

The 30-day limit only gives Jason Schmidt time to make one more start. “We think he needs more than that,” Joe Torre said. But last night, as he was pitching 3 2/3 innings for Single-A Inland Empire against Lancaster, throwing 65 pitches and routinely hitting 91 mph on the gun, Schmidt was hit in the left calf at one point by a line drive. It didn’t knock him out of the game. He kept pitching. But now, the Dodgers can say he incurred an additional injury, something they are believed to have already formally notified the league office of. That means that if Schmidt goes at least seven days without pitching again — that would allow him to make his next rehab start as soon as a week from today — the 30 days could start all over, beginning with the day he makes his next rehab. Funny how things work out.
