Thompson (2-3) took the loss Friday as the Marlins fell 5-2 to the Padres, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three. The rookie right-hander settled down after spotting the Padres a 3-0 lead through two frames, but the Marlins' bats couldn't climb out of the hole. Thompson has done a great job plugging a hole in the Miami rotation, posting a 2.45 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB through his first 33 big-league innings, but the league might be figuring him out.
Thompson (illness) allowed two unearned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision versus Philadelphia on Saturday. The game was suspended in the 10th inning with the score tied at 2-2. The right-hander had some trouble in the first inning, yielding runs on a sacrifice fly by Andrew McCutchen and an RBI double by Rhys Hoskins. Thompson was taken off the hook when Jesus Aguilar hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to tie the game before rain in Philadelphia forced extra innings to be played Sunday. Thompson has a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB through 28 innings this year. He lines up for a tough matchup in his next start, tentatively scheduled for next weekend's four-game series versus San Diego.
Thompson (illness) is slated to start Saturday's game against the Phillies, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. The rookie missed his final start before the All-Star break while recovering from an illness, but the midseason intermission has afforded him ample recovery time. The 27-year-old right-hander has been a pleasant surprise for Miami through his first five big-league starts, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB across 24 innings.
Thompson is feeling under the weather and was scratched from Friday's start against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The right-hander was slated to make his final start before the All-Star break Friday versus Atlanta, but he won't be able to pitch due to the ailment. Trevor Rogers and Pablo Lopez are penciled in as the starters for Saturday and Sunday, respectively, so Thompson likely won't pitch again until after the midseason festivities. The Marlins are expected to employ a bullpen game Friday in his absence.
Thompson allowed three runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Sunday. While Thompson didn't allow much, three of the hits he gave up went for extra bases -- a two-run home run by Ronald Acuna and a pair of Dansby Swanson doubles. The right-hander continues to put together good outings, as Sunday was Thompson's second straight quality start. He has a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB through 24 innings spanning five appearances. He carries a 2-2 record into next weekend's rematch with Atlanta.
