Top Thomas Szapucki News

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Headed to injured list

    Szapucki was placed on the 15-day injured list with a hip strain Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Szapucki dealt with hip tightness in late September but returned to the mound late last week. However, he's apparently been diagnosed with a strain that will force him to miss the final series of the regular season. The southpaw made 11 appearances (one start) between the Mets and Giants this year and posted a 7.20 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 15 innings.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Moves past hip injury

    Szapucki (hip) struck out two in a perfect inning Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Szapucki hadn't pitched since Sept. 24 after exiting his last appearance with hip tightness. Friday marked his first clean outing this year, though his season-long numbers remain skewed by his lone appearance with the Mets in May in which he allowed nine runs in 1.1 innings versus the Giants. He has given up three runs in 11.2 innings across nine outings over two stints in the big leagues with the Giants since he was included in the Darin Ruf trade at the deadline.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Leaves with hip tightness

    Szapucki was removed from Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with right hip tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Szapucki tossed a couple scoreless innings behind starting pitcher Alex Cobb, needing just 20 pitches to record six outs. It seems he would have continued on if not for the hip injury. If this turns out to be more than a day-to-day issue, Szapucki will finish the campaign with a 9.00 ERA and 16:5 K:BB in nine big-league appearances (one start) between the Mets and Giants.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Recalled to big leagues

    Szapucki was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

    After recording a 1.08 ERA in Sacramento, Szapucki will make his return to the majors. The 26-year-old lefty has pitched four innings out of the bullpen for the Giants this year, recording a 2.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in that time. Fellow releiver Zack Littell was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Sent to Triple-A

    Szapucki was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

    Szapucki was called up by the Giants in mid-August, and he posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP while striking out seven in four innings over three relief appearances during this stint with the major-league club. However, he'll cede his spot in the bullpen to Scott Alexander, whose contract was selected Friday.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Recalled by Giants

    Szapucki was recalled by the Giants on Friday.

    Szapucki's lone big-league appearance of the season came against the Giants back in late May, prior to his deadline-day move from the Mets. His current employers knocked him around for nine runs in just 1.1 innings in that appearance, but he's been far better at the Triple-A level, posting a 3.38 ERA. Yunior Marte was optioned to clear space in the bullpen.

  • Giants' Thomas Szapucki: Dealt to San Francisco

    Szapucki was traded from the Mets to the Giants on Tuesday along with J.D. Davis, Nick Zwack and Carson Seymour in exchange for Darin Ruf, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    A lefty who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2019, Szapucki's 65.1 total innings this season are his highest mark in a pro season to date, so it's safe to say he does not have the durability to be a starter. At 26 years old and with a 3.38 ERA and 87 strikeouts at Triple-A, he could be ready to help the Giants' bullpen in short order.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Sent back down

    Szapucki was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Szapucki made his first major-league start Wednesday against the Giants and gave up nine runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two in 1.1 innings. It's not very surprising to see him sent down following his rough outing, but he'll likely be in the mix to serve as a spot starter later in the year since he has a 2.86 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 22 innings for Syracuse.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Disastrous first start

    Szapucki (0-1) allowed nine earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two across 1.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Giants.

    Szapucki was called up to make his first big-league start to fill an opening in the rotation after the Mets had a doubleheader over the weekend. However, he was crushed for four home runs prior to being yanked after recording just four outs. Szapucki will likely find himself back at Triple-A Syracuse in the coming days, where he has maintained a 2.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Promotion official

    The Mets recalled Szapucki from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Giants in San Francisco, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    New York optioned reliever Stephen Nogosek to the minors to make room on the 26-man active roster for Szapucki, who will likely just be making a spot start for the Mets before heading back to Syracuse. Over his seven starts at Syracuse this season, Szapucki has maxed out at five innings and has turned in a 2.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 23.1 K-BB%.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter

    Manager Buck Showalter said Szapucki will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse to start Wednesday's game in San Francisco, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    Szapucki will likely just be making a spot start before returning to the minors, as the Mets had to temporarily transition to a six-man rotation as a result of their doubleheader with the Rockies last weekend. Ideally, Szapucki will be able to give the Mets a decent amount of length in his first MLB start and second career appearance in the majors, as New York needed five relievers to cover the final 4.1 innings of Tuesday's 13-12 loss. Through seven outings with Syracuse in 2022, Szapucki has compiled a 2.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Could start Wednesday in San Fran

    The Mets are "leaning heavily" toward recalling Szapucki from Triple-A Syracuse to start Wednesday's game against the Giants, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Due to a doubleheader this past weekend in Colorado, the Mets will need to break a sixth starter into the rotation Wednesday, and Szapucki looks like the leading option to make a spot start. Arm injuries have slowed Szapucki's progression through the Mets' farm system since he was drafted in 2015, but he's been healthy and effective at Triple-A this season, submitting a 2.86 ERA and 1.32 WHIP while striking out 30 in 22 innings. If Szapucki does in fact get the call to start Wednesday, he'll most likely be sent back to Syracuse following the outing, but he could make a case to stick around as a back-end member of the rotation over Trevor Williams or David Peterson if he fares better than anticipated in what would be only his second MLB appearance.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Healthy at Triple-A

    Szapucki (elbow) gave up two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four over three innings in his season debut last Tuesday for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Szapucki was shut down in July of last season after undergoing ulnar transposition surgery in his left elbow, but he received a clean bill of health heading into spring training. The 25-year-old lefty retains a spot on the Mets' 40-man roster, but he likely doesn't rank high on the list for a potential promotion into the big-league rotation.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Placed on 60-day injured list

    Szapucki (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Szapucki had been on the injured list at the Triple-A level since mid-July after undergoing season-ending elbow surgery. He had to be recalled before he could be placed on the 60-day injured list, so he'll now be earning major-league pay and service time while he recovers.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Elbow surgery ends season

    Szapucki underwent ulnar transposition surgery in his left elbow that will end his season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The procedure was necessary to repair a nerve issue in the lefty's pitching elbow. Szapucki appeared in one game for the Mets this season and struggled, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks in just 3.2 innings. It's unclear whether he'll be healthy for the start of spring training in 2022.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Optioned to Triple-A

    Szapucki was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    The young left-hander will return to the minors after getting tagged for six runs over 3.2 frames in his big-league debut Wednesday. Szapucki will hope for another chance in the majors this season but will head back to Syracuse for now.

  • Mets' Thomas Szapucki: Lit up in MLB debut

    Szapucki made his MLB debut out of the bullpen in Wednesday's 20-2 loss to Atlanta, giving up six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings.

    New York was already trailing by eight runs when Szapucki was summoned from the bullpen in the bottom of the fourth inning, but the 25-year-old did little to clot the bleeding. Szapucki threw only 42 of his 82 pitches for strikes, and he was hit hard when he found the zone, giving up two home runs and two doubles. The Mets could have an opening in the rotation Monday against Milwaukee after Wednesday's starter, David Peterson, exited early with side soreness, but Szapucki may have disqualified himself from spot-start consideration after his ugly showing in Atlanta.
