  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Recalled from Triple-A

    Hatch was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    The 26-year-old will join the Blue Jays for their series opener against the Twins. In two major-league outings this year, he has allowed four runs in 7.2 innings. Jake Lamb was designated for assignment Thursday in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Lands on 10-day IL

    Hatch was placed on the 10-day injured list with right hamstring tendinitis Friday.

    Hatch was removed from Thursday's series opener due to a hamstring issue, and the injury will likely force him to miss the remainder of the regular season. The right-hander made three appearances (two starts) for the Blue Jays this year and posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 9.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Dealing with hamstring tightness

    Hatch exited Thursday's game against the Twins with right hamstring tightness.

    Hatch exited Thursday's game after 30 pitches, with beat reporters suggesting that he looked uncomfortable throughout the outing. The results indicated the same, as he allowed three earned runs on one hit and three walks. The positive news is that he avoided an injury to his arm, so he should be ready for the 2022 season if he is sidelined for the remainder of the 2021 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Exits with trainer

    Hatch exited Thursday's game against the Twins after being visited on the mound by a trainer, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.

    Hatch was seen grimacing after throwing a pitch, and he was visited by trainers immediately after. There are no details on the nature of the injury at this time, but it is clear that Hatch was in a fair amount of discomfort.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Joins taxi squad for road trip

    The Blue Jays will include Hatch (hamstring) on their taxi squad for their seven-game road trip that begins Monday in Tampa Bay, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Hatch isn't expected to be added to the 28-man active roster unless the Blue Jays need lose a pitcher to an injury or need someone to eat innings out of the bullpen, but his inclusion on the taxi squad is an indication nonetheless that he's moved past the hamstring issue he picked up his last appearance with the big club Sept. 11 in Baltimore. The Blue Jays optioned Hatch to Triple-A Buffalo a day later, but he didn't make an appearance for the affiliate before joining the taxi squad.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Moves back to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Hatch (hamstring) to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Hatch was only up with the Blue Jays for one day after the team required a temporary sixth starter due to Saturday's doubleheader with the Orioles. He pitched the second game of the twin bill, working four innings and giving up one run on one hit and two walks while striking out three before exiting with a hamstring issue. The extent of the injury isn't yet clear, but evidently, it wasn't significant enough for the Blue Jays to move him to the 10-day injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Departs with hamstring injury

    Hatch exited Saturday's start against the Orioles with a hamstring issue, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Hatch was effective as the starter in Saturday's nightcap, as he allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three in four innings. However, the Blue Jays revealed after his removal that he's dealing with a hamstring injury. The right-hander was on the active roster as the 29th man, and the severity of his injury isn't yet clear.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Spot start Saturday vs. O's

    Hatch will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    He will be up as the 29th man in what will likely just be a spot start. Ross Stripling was originally listed as the starter for the nightcap. Hatch has shown promise in the past, but he has a 5.23 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over his last six starts at Triple-A. However, his 37:5 K:BB in 32.2 innings over that stretch paints a prettier picture.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Could join big club Saturday

    Hatch could be recalled to pitch in Saturday's doubleheader in Baltimore, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    He has a 5.23 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 37:5 K:BB in 32.2 innings over his last six starts at Triple-A. Hatch could have a bright future, but given his recent performance and the location of this potential start, it would be best to take a wait-and-see approach in redraft leagues.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Retreats to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Hatch to Triple-A Buffalo ahead of Sunday's game against the Royals.

    Hatch will cede his spot on the 26-man roster and in the rotation to Jose Berrios, whom the Blue Jays acquired from the Twins ahead of Friday's trade deadline. Toronto turned to Hatch to make his first start with the big club Monday in Boston, where the right-hander was ambushed for three runs on seven hits and one walk in 3.2 innings. Hatch should continue to make regular starts at Triple-A to stay ready in the event the Blue Jays' rotation depth takes a hit at any point in the second half.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Escapes with no-decision

    Hatch allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 3.2 innings in a no-decision versus Boston on Monday.

    The 26-year-old's first appearance of the year wasn't all that impressive, and he was on the hook for the loss before Bo Bichette's fifth-inning homer. Hatch has made eight starts for Triple-A Buffalo this year, but he's only covered 29.1 innings as he was on a pitch count due to an elbow impingement suffered in March. It's unlikely the right-hander sees a regular turn in the rotation once Alek Manoah (back) comes off the injured list, but Hatch could be a candidate to start in a doubleheader versus Boston next week.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Locked in to start Monday

    Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo confirmed that Hatch will start Monday's game against the Red Sox, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Before committing to starting Hatch in Monday's series opener, the Blue Jays made the right-hander available out of the bullpen in an emergency for Sunday's game against the Mets, but he wasn't needed in Toronto's 5-4 loss. Hatch has gone unused since being called up from Triple-A Buffalo on July 19, so Monday's outing will mark his 2021 debut for the big club. Alek Manoah (back) is ultimately expected to displace Hatch as a starter, but the latter could end up making two or three turns through the rotation due to a doubleheader against the Red Sox coming up Aug. 7.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Set to start Monday

    Hatch is scheduled to start Monday against the Red Sox if he's not needed out of the bullpen Sunday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Sunday's starter Ross Stripling was able to cover five innings, so it's unlikely Hatch will be needed in relief. Hatch was scheduled to start last Tuesday before the contest was postponed, and he's instead likely to receive the nod Monday. Manager Charlie Montoyo indicated the right-hander could stick in the rotation as the sixth starter for the near future due to upcoming doubleheaders.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Tuesday's game postponed

    Hatch won't start as scheduled Tuesday versus the Red Sox since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Hatch was promoted Monday and slated to make his season debut Tuesday versus Boston, but he'll lose out on that chance due to the postponement. Robbie Ray will remain on schedule to start Wednesday, per Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun, so Hatch may not make his first start of 2021 anytime soon, as Alek Manoah (back) is expected to miss only one turn through the rotation.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Set for season debut

    Hatch will start Tuesday's game against Boston, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Hatch was promoted to the big club Monday afternoon, and he won't need to wait long to make his season debut. He's found plenty of success at Triple-A Buffalo in 2021, accruing a 2.15 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 29 punchouts across 29.1 innings after posting similar numbers in his big-league debut last year.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Rejoins big club

    Hatch was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    The 26-year-old was reinstated from the 60-day injured list July 6 and was immediately sent to Triple-A, but he'll now join the Blue Jays in hopes of making his season debut in the majors. Hatch and Anthony Kay are in the mix to start Tuesday versus the Red Sox in place of Alex Manoah (back), who landed on the injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Reinstated, sent down

    Hatch (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Htch had been on the 60-day injured list since the start of the regular season due to right elbow inflammation, but he had been on a rehab assignment since May 20, and he built up to five innings during his most recent appearance. Across six rehab starts, the right-hander posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 19.1 innings. He'll remain at Triple-A Buffalo now that he's healthy, but he could be an option to join the Blue Jays at some point.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Builds up to 51 pitches

    Hatch threw two shutout innings while striking out three Friday in a rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    While Hatch was statistically effective in this outing, he needed 51 pitches to get through two frames, which put him at his pitch count and ended his night. He will likely need at least one more rehab start before he could be an option to join the big-league rotation.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Back in action for Triple-A

    Hatch (elbow) resumed his rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, pitching two scoreless innings while allowing no hits and one walk in a 29-pitch start.

    After opening the season on the 60-day injured list with an inflamed right elbow, Hatch began his rehab assignment at Buffalo on May 20 with a three-inning start. According to Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca, Hatch was omitted from Buffalo's pitching schedule for the next three weeks due to "mild tightness in his side," but he's apparently overcome that issue. He'll now turn his focus to building up his innings over his subsequent rehab outings, as Toronto views the 26-year-old right-hander as a potential option for the big-league rotation this season.
