Aaron Boone on Clarke Schmidt (common extensor strain): "As we've checked in with him, it's kind of been better each and every day. But he's still at least another week before he starts throwing. But range of motion, strength, all those things are coming back the way it should, but he's still probably at least a week away from throwing."

As soon as he goes three-and-out two times this year, his ass is going to get booed out of the stadium. It's not fair to the kid." Sanchez speaks from experience
