  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Outrighted to Double-A

    Thompson cleared waivers Saturday and was sent outright to Double-A Chattanooga, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson was pushed off the 40-man roster Thursday but will remain within the Reds organization after going unclaimed off waivers. He is slashing .200/.243/.314/ across 37 plate appearances since being sent down to Double-A and could reach Triple-A if his hitting improves, though a return to the big leagues seems unlikely at the moment.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Moves off 40-man roster

    The Reds designated Thompson for assignment Thursday.

    Since the end of the 2023 season, Thompson has now been DFA'd on four occasions; twice by the Reds, and one apiece by the Yankees and Twins. Thompson won a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster and hit .111 over 18 at-bats in 17 games before he was sent to Double-A Chattanooga on May 7. The 25-year-old outfielder had posted a .557 OPS in nine games since reporting to Chattanooga and was deemed expendable from the 40-man roster with the Reds opting to clear a spot for right-hander Brett Kennedy, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Sent packing to minors

    The Reds optioned Thompson to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Thompson has been on the Reds' roster since Opening Day but has hardly played, accumulating just 18 plate appearances. He should receive more reps at Louisville.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Late insert to lineup

    Thompson started in center field and went 1-for-4 with a double in Monday's 10-8 win over the Brewers.

    Originally held out of the starting nine, Thompson was a late addition as part of a shuffle following Jonathan India's leg injury suffered during pregame warmups. It was the second consecutive start for Thompson, who is 2-for-8 with four steals over eight games. He's mostly been used as a pinch runner.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Makes first start

    Thompson started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Mets.

    Thompson made his first start of the season and stole his fourth base. The speedy outfielder had served as a pinch runner over his first six appearances and stole his first three bases in that role.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Role being defined

    Thompson entered as a pinch runner, stole a base and scored a run in Monday's 6-3 extra-inning win over the Phillies.

    Thompson pinch-ran for Luke Maile as the designated runner to start the 10th inning and immediately stole third base before trotting home on Spencer Steer's grand slam. It was the third consecutive game in which Thompson entered as a pinch runner and stole a base. The role suits the speedy Thompson, who has a .286 on-base percentage during his time in the majors. It appears this will be his job for as long as TJ Friedl (wrist) remains sidelined.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Logs second steal

    Thompson entered as a pinch runner and stole a base in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Nationals.

    For the second straight game, Thompson entered as a pinch runner and stole a base. His stay with the team may be a short one -- TJ Friedl (wrist) could return by May 1 -- but Thompson's speed could be helpful while he's on the roster.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Logs steal in loss

    Thompson entered Saturday's game as a pinch runner, stole a base and scored a run in a 7-6 loss to the Nationals.

    Thompson may not play a significant role for the Reds, but his speed could be useful. He's two years removed from stealing 18 bases in 55 games for the Rangers. He can also play center field, a position in flux after TJ Friedl (wrist) opened the season on the injured list.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Joins big-league roster

    The Reds recalled Thompson from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

    The 25-year-old was optioned to Louisville in mid-March but ended up earning a place on the Opening Day roster after he posted an .828 OPS in 15 games during spring training. Thompson should serve as a reserve outfielder with TJ Friedl (wrist) set to miss the first month of the season.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: In mix for final roster spot

    Thompson is in the mix for the final roster spot, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    The Reds trimmed their roster Friday and are at 25 players with the need to add another. Thompson and Jacob Hurtubise, both of whom were reassigned to minor-league camp earlier this spring, are the most logical candidates -- they're on the 40-man roster and fill the team's greatest need in the outfield. Alternatively, Cincinnati could look outside the organization, monitoring roster cuts by other teams over the weekend.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Reds optioned Thompson to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Thompson has slashed .353/.421/.471 this spring but wasn't able to break into the Reds' crowded outfield. He'll play regularly at Louisville, with most of those starts likely to come in center field.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Back with Cincinnati

    The Reds claimed Thompson off waivers from the Twins on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson had been claimed by the Reds back in October before being dumped two months after that. He's now found his way back to Cincinnati as he continues his waivers merry-go-round. The speedy outfielder will compete for a reserve role.

  • Twins' Bubba Thompson: Removed from 40-man roster

    Thompson was designated for assignment by the Twins on Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson was claimed off waivers by the Twins just last month, but his stay on the 40-man roster didn't last long. The 25-year-old speedster has slashed just .242/.286/.305 in 241 career major-league plate appearances.

  • Twins' Bubba Thompson: Claimed off waivers by Twins

    The Twins claimed Thompson off waivers from the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Thompson is now with his fifth different organization since August as he continues to bounce around via waivers. The Twins are known to be seeking some center field help as protection for Byron Buxton (knee) and Thompson could fill that role. The 25-year-old has slashed just .242/.286/.305 in 241 career major-league plate appearances, but he runs well and can play all three outfield spots.

  • Yankees' Bubba Thompson: Dropped from 40-man

    The Yankees designated Thompson for assignment Friday.

    With the signing of Luke Weaver becoming official Friday, Thompson will lose his spot on the Yankees' 40-man roster. The 25-year-old Thompson registered nine hits in 53 major-league at-bats last season, and he slashed .256/.334/.391 across 302 plate appearances in Triple-A.

  • Yankees' Bubba Thompson: Lands with Yankees via waivers

    The Yankees claimed Thompson off waivers from the Reds on Thursday.

    Thompson has slashed just .242/.286/.305 in 241 career major-league plate appearances but offers plus speed and the ability to play all three outfield positions. The 25-year-old first-round pick will compete for a reserve role in spring training.

  • Reds' Bubba Thompson: Exits 40-man roster

    Thompson was designated for assignment by the Reds on Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Thompson was claimed off waivers by the Reds in October and will now go through the waiver process again as the club frees up a 40-man roster spot for the re-signing of Buck Farmer. The 25-year-old has elite speed but has slashed just .242/.286/.305 in 241 career major-league plate appearances.
