was diagnosed with nodular sclerosing lymphoma early in June but less than two months later he announced that he has been cleared of cancer.

"From day one this until now this journey has been life changing to say the least," Schmidt said Thursday morning on his Instagram account. "But with all the love and support of my friends, family, and everyone in the community this journey has been bearable. I can now officially say as of this morning I have been completely cleared of all cancerous cells in my body. I can't thank the doctors at Kennestone enough, Dr. Oyola you've become such a close friend to me and my family and I'm so thankful for you. Thank you to everyone for your love and support its meant more than you'll ever know."

According to Wikipedia, Nodular sclerosis (or "NSHL") is a form of Hodgkin's lymphoma that is the most common subtype of HL in developed countries. It affects females slightly more than males and has a median age of onset at ~28 years. It is composed of large tumor nodules with lacunar Reed-Sternberg cell (RS cells) surrounded by fibrotic collagen bands.

Schmidt was a weekend starter most of the 2013 season and was a long reliever and weekday starter in 2014. In 121.2 innings, he has an 8-11 record and a 4.44 ERA.
