Top Ryan Thompson News

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Thompson (right triceps inflammation) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    He was shut down for the season earlier this week, with a stress reaction in his right elbow being reported, so it sounds like the stress reaction is what was causing the triceps inflammation. Thompson will compete for a spot in the bullpen next spring if he is healthy.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Shut down for season

    Thompson (triceps) has been diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right elbow and will be shut down for the rest of the season, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Thompson has been on the injured list since the end of August due to right triceps inflammation, and he recently experienced discomfort in his elbow while throwing. In spite of his shutdown, he's expected to be ready for spring training in 2023. Over 47 relief appearances in 2022, Thompson converted three of eight save chances while picking up 10 holds with a 3.80 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 42.2 innings.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Out with triceps injury

    The Rays placed Thompson on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right triceps inflammation, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    A best-case scenario has Thompson returning around the middle of September, although it's unclear how significant his injury is. The sidearm-throwing righty hasn't pitched since Thursday, when he allowed two runs on four hits versus the Angels. Thompson sports a modest 3.80 ERA and 39:11 K:BB this season.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Reinstated by Rays

    Thompson (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list Monday.

    Thompson has been relatively effective over his last five appearances, as he's picked up two holds while allowing two unearned runs and striking out seven in 5.1 innings. He'll rejoin the Rays' bullpen in Boston after he was unavailable for the team's five-game set in Toronto.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Heading to restricted list

    Thompson will be placed on the restricted list and won't travel with Tampa Bay for the upcoming five-game series in Toronto, which begins Thursday, due to Canada's vaccination requirement, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Thompson allowed a walk and had two strikeouts over two scoreless innings during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Brewers, but he won't be available to face the Blue Jays on the road since he's apparently unvaccinated. The 30-year-old will be able to rejoin the team ahead of Monday's game at Boston.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Picks up third save

    Thompson did not allow a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Rangers.

    Thompson was called upon to protect a two-run lead in the ninth inning and retired the side on just eight pitches to record his third save of the season. He hasn't earned a high-leverage role with his performances of late, as he's allowed 13 earned runs across his last 8.2 innings. Despite those struggles, the Rays continue to rotate pitchers through the closer role, so Thompson could pick up spare saves while Andrew Kittredge (back) remains sidelined.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Can't hold lead

    Thompson allowed an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out two across two innings to blow the save Friday against Baltimore.

    Thompson entered the game in the 11th inning with a one-run lead. He retired the first two batters he faced but ultimately surrendered an RBI single to Austin Hays. Thompson came back out for the 12th inning and set down the side in order. He could see an uptick in save chances if Andrew Kittredge (back) remains sidelined, though Brooks Raley would likely be first in line. Thompson has a mediocre 4.40 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB across 14.1 innings, though he has tallied two saves and three holds on the campaign.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Earns second save

    Thompson picked up the save, striking out the only batter he faced in a 2-1 win Thursday over Seattle.

    Thompson entered the game with two on and two out and struck out Tom Murphy looking to finish the game. It was the second save for the righty in as many chances. Andrew Kittredge has received the most save opportunities and Thompson is second, although Thursday's save opportunity only came about when a misplayed ball extended the inning. The 29-year-old has not allowed a run this season and has proven trustworthy in high-leverage situations.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Picks up save

    Thompson did not allow a baserunner and struck out one across a scoreless ninth inning to record the save Sunday against Boston.

    Thompson entered the game with a three-run lead and needed 16 pitches to retire the side in order to record his first save of the season. Andrew Kittredge had served as the team's primary closer to this point in the campaign, though he pitched two innings Saturday and was likely unavailable as a result. While Thompson has delivered 6.1 scoreless innings early on this season, he isn't likely to regularly factor into the saves picture for Tampa Bay.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Recalled by Rays

    Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Monday.

    Thompson owns a 3.28 career ERA in 60.1 major-league innings. He'll replace Ryan Yarbrough on the roster after Yarbrough hit the injured list with left groin tightness.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Beginning year in minors

    Thompson was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Thompson underwent thoracic outlet surgery in September and started spring slowly, but he's been able to make three Grapefruit League appearances. While he'll miss out on the Opening Day roster, he should get plenty of chances this season as the Rays rotate through their relievers with options.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Could make spring debut

    Thompson (shoulder) is listed among Tampa Bay's available relievers for Thursday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Thompson, whose 2021 campaign came to an early end when he underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in September, has been brought along slowly in camp, but he looks as though he'll have a chance at earning a spot in the Rays' Opening Day bullpen. He made his spring debut last Friday, working an inning and giving up one run on one hit and one walk in a game against the Orioles. Thompson apparently checked out fine during that outing, and it looks like he'll be ready to make his second Grapefruit League appearance Thursday. The right-hander still has three minor-league options remaining, so the Rays could choose to send him to one of their affiliates early in the season if they want to give him more time to shake off the rust following surgery.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Faces hitters

    Thompson (shoulder) is scheduled to face hitters in live batting practice Tuesday.

    Thompson has yet to make his Grapefruit League debut while he works his way back from the thoracic outlet syndrome surgery he required last September, but he seems to be making positive progress in his recovery. Now that he's advanced to facing hitters, Thompson could be integrated into the Rays' spring pitching schedule within the next few days. Since he's a reliever who won't need to build up his pitch count substantially over what's left of spring training, Thompson could still have a chance to break camp as a member of the Opening Day bullpen, though a brief stint on the injured list to begin the season remains a possibility.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Throws bullpen Wednesday

    Thompson (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Thompson missed the second half of the 2021 campaign due to a shoulder injury that required thoracic outlet surgery at the end of September. Manager Kevin Cash called the right-hander's bullpen "very encouraging," but the team hasn't yet revealed whether Thompson will be ready for Opening Day in 2022.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Undergoes surgery

    Thompson underwent thoracic outlet surgery Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Thompson hadn't appeared at the big-league level since late June due to a shoulder issue which eventually required surgery. He's expected to be ready for spring training.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Set for thoracic outlet surgery

    Thompson (shoulder) will undergo surgery in the near future to address thoracic outlet syndrome, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Thompson was originally shut down in late August while experiencing lingering soreness in his right shoulder, and he was eventually diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. The 29-year-old is without a specific return timeline but is expected to be ready for spring training.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Slated to visit with doctors

    Thompson (shoulder) will visit with doctors in the coming days to help determine the extent of his injury, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Thompson was shut down in late August since he continued to experience soreness in his shoulder, and he hasn't yet resumed throwing. The right-hander's upcoming examination is expected to determine whether his injury is related to thoracic outlet syndrome, and a better timetable for his return will likely be revealed after he visits with doctors.

  • Rays' Ryan Thompson: Shut down from throwing

    Thompson (shoulder) was recently shut down from throwing due to ongoing soreness in his shoulder, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The right-hander's return from the injured list was pushed back a few days when he was struck by a comebacker in the leg last week, and his return will now be delayed significantly longer. It's unclear how long Thompson will be shut down, but there's a chance it could prevent him from rejoining the Rays before the end of the regular season.
