Schmidt throws 71 pitches with seven K's in rehab outing
The 34-year-old right-hander, sidelined since the middle of April with shoulder inflammation, allowed two hits while walking one and striking out seven in the 66ers' 2-1 victory over the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. The game was scoreless when Schmidt left.
Schmidt, who signed a three-year, $47 million contract during the offseason, threw 71 pitches -- 51 for strikes. He is 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA in three starts this year.
