Before Christmas 2020, Schroeder learned he had an aortal aneurysm as well as a defective heart valve and 60% blockage in one of his major arteries.

On 23 December, Schroeder spent 12 hours in surgery, which included a double bypass while fixing his other various heart issues.

Immediately after the operation, Bill said he’d cut back on his schedule to recover.

“I’m not going to do back-to-back games,” said Schroeder. “I’m probably going to do four or five innings in the beginning. Towards the end of spring, I’ll jump back in and be ready for the season.”

As for the regular season, he added: “Basically, I’m going to take a few road trips off. Nothing is etched in stone.

“I’m feeling really good about where I’m at, but I’ll be taking a few trips off, at least, at the beginning of the year.”

He’s obviously just taking a bit more time to recover right now.
