Josh Schmidt to Trenton, Brian Anderson and Steve Garrison heading to the DL

I expected Steve Garrison would be placed on the disabled list, given the obvious injury that occurred in yesterday's game. Anderson, however, is a bit of a surprise. He's been nails so far this season, and losing him is a huge blow to the Thunder's bullpen.

Getting Josh Schmidt, however, might be a bit of a boon. He's always performed well in extensive experience in the Eastern League, and is capable of doing anything from getting one out, to going multiple innings, to starting.

In Scranton this season, Schmidt was 2-1 with a 1.17 ERA. He'd allowed six hits in 7 2/3 innings, walked four and struck out 11.

He's been moderately successful at every level, but he's seen as an organizational pitcher, and shuttling back and forth between clubs.
