  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Cubs recalled Thompson from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Thompson will provide a fresh arm for a bullpen that was needed to cover 7.1 innings Friday. He holds a 4.97 ERA and 19:6 K:BB over 12.2 relief innings during his time with the Cubs this season.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Activated, staying at Triple-A

    Thompson (illness) was activated from the 15-day injured list Friday and was optioned to Triple-A Iowa, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Thompson has been recovering from a viral illness since mid-May and was rehabbing with Triple-A Iowa this week. While he's over the illness, he'll stick around in the minors, where he started this season. He's appeared in three games for Iowa during his rehab stint, yielding one run on three hits with six Ks over 4.2 innings.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Beginning rehab assignment

    Thompson (illness) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Since Thompson is working his way back from a viral illness rather than a physical injury, he's not expected to require a lengthy rehab assignment before being activated from the 15-day injured list. Prior to being deactivated, Thompson had posted a 4.97 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB in 12.2 innings over nine appearances out of the Chicago bullpen.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Placed on IL

    The Cubs placed Thompson on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a viral illness, Ryan Herrera of MLB.com reports.

    He will be sidelined at least until late May while he recovers from the ailment. Luke Little was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take Thompson's spot on the Cubs' 26-man active roster and in their bullpen.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Back in big leagues

    The Cubs recalled Thompson from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    He was just optioned Monday but is back a day later to replace the injured Daniel Palencia (shoulder). Thompson has allowed seven runs (four earned) and recorded just three outs over his last two appearances with the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Cubs optioned Thompson to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Thompson has pitched well overall out of the Cubs bullpen this season, but he was roughed up in his last two appearances while yielding seven runs (four earned) and recording just three outs. He's being sent out to make room on the active roster for lefty Justin Steele (hamstring), who was reinstated from the injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday versus the Padres.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Continues strong play

    Thompson tossed 2.2 scoreless innings of relief in Friday's 7-1 win over the Red Sox. He allowed two hits and a walk, while striking out two.

    Thompson has still yet to allow an earned run this season across 9.2 innings out of the bullpen. The righty has tossed multiple innings in four of his five appearances this season, making him an effective long-relief weapon for the Cubs. His fantasy value is capped in the role, but Thompson figures to have some occasional appeal whenever he vultures a win or scoops up a save.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Effective in relief Friday

    Thompson tossed two scoreless innings of relief with four strikeouts in Friday's 8-3 win over the Marlins.

    Thompson allowed just a lone walk over his two strong frames Friday, and he kept his season ERA at a perfect 0.00 across six innings. This level of play is of course unsustainable, though the righty could be emerging as a key multi-inning option for the Cubs. Thompson doesn't seem to be in the mix to start anytime soon, however, and his fantasy value will remain limited in a long-relief role.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Called up Friday

    Manager Craig Counsell revealed on "The Parkins & Spiegal Show" that the Cubs had called up Thompson from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, per 670 The Score.

    With Jose Cuas being sent down Thursday, the Cubs are bringing in Thompson to shore up their bullpen depth. Thompson has not allowed a run in his last three outings with Iowa, striking out six batters while allowing one hit and two walks in five innings over that span.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Sharp in 2024 debut

    Thompson tossed two scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Thompson was called up from Triple-A Iowa earlier in the day with Jose Cuas getting sent down, and he immediately had a positive impact. The righty can give the Cubs some length out of the bullpen, as he's a former rotation member who made 23 starts for the team between 2021 and 2022. While he could vulture a win here and there, Thompson is unlikely to have a huge fantasy impact in his current role.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Opening season in minors

    The Cubs optioned Thompson to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.

    Thompson was one of five players cut Sunday as the Cubs reduced their group at big-league camp to 42 men with Opening Day about a week and a half away. The right-hander had a decent showing in spring training, but his underwhelming results over a larger sample of work in the big leagues in 2023 (4.71 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 26:19 K:BB in 28.2 innings) likely played a greater part in the Cubs' decision to send him to Triple-A to begin the 2024 campaign.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Continues strong spring

    Thompson, who logged a scoreless inning of relief with two strikeouts in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, has yet to allow a run this spring.

    Thompson has only tossed three innings across three Cactus League appearances, so it's a small sample size, but he's looked good so far. After making 17 starts for the Cubs in 2022, the righty worked entirely in relief last season, and he struggled with a 4.71 ERA across 28.2 innings. Now that Thompson has settled in a bit more as a reliever, he'll look for better results in 2024, though it likely will be in a lower-leverage role.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Sent to rookie ball

    The Cubs optioned Thompson to the Arizona Complex League on Friday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Following the activation of Adbert Alzolay (forearm) from the 15-day IL, Thompson will be pushed off the active roster and continue working at the Cubs' facility in Arizona. He holds a 4.71 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 28.2 innings on the year, and he could end up being a bullpen depth option in the postseason should the Cubs secure a spot.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Recalled from Iowa

    The Cubs recalled Thompson from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    With Brad Boxberger (forearm) headed for the injured list, Thompson will rejoin the Cubs' bullpen to provide depth for the final week-plus of the season. Thompson holds a 4.71 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 28.2 innings in the majors this year and will likely serve in middle relief while with Chicago.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Sent back to minors

    Thompson was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    He's giving up his roster spot to Brad Boxberger, who is back following a long stint on the injured list. Thompson had been scored upon in each of his last three relief appearances, yielding a total of five runs over 5.1 innings.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Notches first save

    Thompson recorded his first save of the season in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Reds, giving up one run on two hits over two innings. He struck out two.

    The right-hander was brought in to work the eighth inning with the Cubs protecting a 4-1 lead, and then stayed in the game after they tacked on two insurance runs in the top of the ninth. It's Thompson's second appearance since he rejoined the big-league bullpen in late August, and he's worked two innings in each with an impressive 7:0 K:BB. Friday's usage suggests he could be moving into a high-leverage role, but the 28-year-old is no threat to Adbert Alzolay's job as closer.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Recalled to bullpen

    The Cubs recalled Thompson from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Thompson will join Chicago's bullpen mix ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Pirates. The 28-year-old former starter has issued 35 walks in 46.1 innings this season between the minors and majors while working exclusively in relief.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Cubs optioned Thompson to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson surrendered three earned runs while recording no outs in his last appearance Wednesday versus the Astros. He carries an overall 4.22 ERA in 21.1 innings of relief this year with Chicago.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Bright spot in big loss

    Thompson tossed two perfect innings of relief with two strikeouts in Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Twins.

    Thompson was one of seven Chicago players to take the mound Sunday, and he and Brandon Hughes, who retired a single batter, were the only ones to not get scored upon. Thompson has been good in relief this season with a 2.95 ERA across 21.1 innings. With Hayden Wesneski struggling some as the team's fifth starter, Thompson could be a candidate to start at some point after making 17 starts in 2022, though he'll stick in long relief for the time being.

  • Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Struggles in loss

    Thompson (1-2) allowed three runs on four hits while retiring just one batter to take the loss Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Starter Hayden Wesneski allowed just one run across six innings, but Thompson struggled mightily in the seventh. The righty has taken losses in each of his last two outings while allowing four earned runs and retiring only two batters. Thompson has seen his ERA climb from 1.23 to 3.52 in the process. Better days should be ahead for Chicago's long reliever, who had a 3.38 ERA in 2021 and a 3.76 mark last season.
