Top Tommy Hunter News

  • Rays' Tommy Hunter: Traded to Tampa Bay

    Hunter (back) was traded from the Mets to the Rays along with Matthew Dyer on Friday, with Rich Hill going the other way, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Hunter is presumably included in the deal as a salary dump. He's been out with back pain since late May, with reports from earlier this week indicating he may not pitch again this season. He'll be a free agent this offseason.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Status in doubt

    Hunter (back) may not pitch again this season, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since mid-May with a back injury, and he was shifted to the 60-day injured list in June. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Hunter apparently hasn't made much progress in his recovery and will have a tough time rejoining the Mets during the second half.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Hunter (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Hunter has been out since late May due to lower-back soreness. The issue is evidently serious enough to keep him out past the All-Star break. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mets to add Nick Tropeano, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Back recovering well

    Hunter (back) has been moving better in recent days and may return sooner than expected, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    The Mets' concern over Hunter's injury was largely driven by his history of back issues, according to manager Luis Rojas. The reliever is first eligible to return from the injured list Saturday and that remains a legitimate possibility due to his encouraging progress.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Out with back injury

    Hunter landed on the 10-day injured list with lower-back pain Friday.

    Hunter has made four appearances for the Mets this season, throwing eight scoreless innings while allowing just four hits, though his 6:3 K:BB isn't particularly impressive. The transaction was backdated to Wednesday, so Hunter can return a week from Saturday if he's healthy. Yennsy Diaz was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Opening bullpen game

    Hunter will be the first pitcher on the mound for what's expected to be a bullpen game Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Hunter hasn't started a game since 2012. He's unlikely to pitch deep into Saturday's game, as he hasn't recorded more than six outs in an appearance since 2013. Joey Lucchesi and Trevor Hildenberger are the top candidates to follow him out of the bullpen.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Contract selected by Mets

    Hunter's contract was selected by the Mets on Thursday.

    Hunter served as a non-roster invitee this spring and will join the major-league roster after Jordan Yamamoto was sent down and Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) was placed on the 60-day injured list. The veteran made 24 relief appearances for the Phillies last year, posting a 4.01 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 24.2 innings.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Back with Mets

    Hunter signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The 34-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invitee before being released last week, but he agreed to a new minors deal with the Mets on Tuesday. Hunter had a 4.01 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB over 24.2 innings for the Phillies last season.

  • Tommy Hunter: Heads to free agency

    Hunter was released by the Mets on Thursday.

    The veteran righty joined the Mets as a non-roster invitee prior to camp but had an opt-out in his contract in the event that he didn't earn a roster spot. He evidently wasn't going to break camp in the big-league bullpen, so he'll now look for work elsewhere.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Receives camp invite from Mets

    Hunter signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Sunday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

    The veteran right-hander spent 2020 in Philadelphia and had a solid season with a 4.01 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB over 24.2 innings. Hunter has a 3.24 ERA since converting to a full-time reliever in 2013 and should be able to crack the Mets' Opening Day roster with a decent showing in spring training.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Notches first save

    Hunter struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    The veteran right-hander picked up his first save of the season Saturday, as typical ninth-inning option Hector Neris worked during Friday's doubleheader and Brandon Workman has surrendered five runs over his last three outings. Hunter has mostly been working as a setup man this season and has eight holds, a 4.29 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB over 21 innings.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Getting more work as setup man

    Hunter gave up one hit and struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings en route to claiming his third hold of the season Tuesday in the Phillies' 8-3 win over the Nationals.

    The Phillies eased Hunter into action to begin the season after he arrived late to summer camp following a positive COVID-19 test. Though he was included on the Opening Day roster, his initial appearances came mostly in low-leverage spots, but Hunter has since emerged as one of manager Joe Girardi's more trusted setup men. He's collected all three of his holds over his last five appearances, during which he's yielded one run over six innings while striking out five.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Reports to camp

    Hunter (illness) reported to the Phillies' summer camp Friday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The veteran right-hander has been absent from camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he's apparently recovered and cleared the league's protocols. Hunter is expected to work in middle relief and see occasional high-leverage action, but he may need some extra time to reach game readiness with only a week until Opening Day.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Working back from positive test

    Hunter is working through league protocols to rejoin his teammates after previously testing positive for COVID-19, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    It was reported previously that Hunter was on the COVID-19 injured list, though placement on that list doesn't necessarily mean the player had tested positive themselves. In Hunter's case, he had, but he's seemingly on his way back. He'll have to test negative twice and be completely past his symptoms before he's able to return to workouts.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Placed on COVID-19 injured list

    Hunter was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Hunter and three of his teammates were placed on the injured list for initially undisclosed reasons, but it's since been revealed that all four have landed on the COVID-19 injured list rather than the normal 10-day injured list. That doesn't guarantee that any of them have tested positive for the virus, however, as players can be placed on the list simply for having been in contact with an infected person. With players' medical information being kept confidential in this area, it's difficult to say when Hunter is expected to return to the field.

  • Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Placed on IL

    The Phillies placed Hunter (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Though Hunter required right flexor tendon surgery last July and was limited in spring training, he was expected to be available for Opening Day after the start of the season was delayed approximately four months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the report doesn't cite any injury in particular behind Hunter's placement on the IL, the right-hander may be dealing with an issue unrelated to his forearm. Whenever Hunter receives a clean bill of health, he's expected to work as one of the Phillies' top setup men. Though he was limited to just five big-league appearances last season, Hunter was reasonably effective when healthy in 2018, posting a 3.80 ERA and 1.25 WHIP while recording 25 holds in 64 innings.
