  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Throwing bullpen Wednesday

    Tiedemann (shoulder) is throwing another bullpen session Wednesday, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Tiedemann also was able to complete a bullpen session Saturday, and he continues to make progress from the minor left shoulder soreness that has plagued the southpaw since the middle of March. The top prospect in the Toronto system will begin the season with either Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo, but regardless of his landing spot, he has a great chance to make starts with the Blue Jays before the end of 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: To throw off mound Saturday

    Tiedemann (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    It's a day later than was originally planned, but the top prospect continues to progress as he works his way back from what the Blue Jays are viewing as minor left shoulder soreness. Tiedemann -- who was reassigned to minor-league camp earlier this week -- has been throwing on flat ground for a few days.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Cleared for flat-ground work

    Tiedemann (shoulder) will throw off flat ground at Blue Jays camp Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    Manager John Schneider noted that Tiedemann is scheduled to get back on the mound Friday for a bullpen session if he fares well while playing catch Wednesday. The Blue Jays' top pitching prospect had been tending to the sore shoulder before being reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, but the injury doesn't look to be anything that will cost him significant time -- if any -- to begin the season.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Reassigned to minors camp

    Tiedemann (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Blue Jays on Monday, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Tiedemann was recently shut down from throwing due to left shoulder soreness, but he likely was going to be sent to minor-league camp regardless of the injury. The top pitching talent in the Toronto system, Tiedemann was sensational in 2022, and assuming good health, he has a great opportunity to help the Blue Jays before the end of the 2023 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Dealing with sore shoulder

    Manager John Schneider said Monday that Tiedemann was recently shut down for a couple days due to left shoulder soreness, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Tiedemann has since resumed long-toss throwing and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, so his shoulder injury seems to be relatively minor. However, any time a team's top pitching prospect is dealing with a sore shoulder, some level of concern is warranted. Tiedemann is headed back to the minors to start the season either way, but, if healthy and pitching well, he could push to make his MLB debut at some point in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Dazzles in Grapefruit League debut

    Tiedemann struck out two batters during a perfect sixth inning in Tuesday's split-squad game against the Tigers.

    The 20-year-old lefty was working deeper in the game, but he still faced big-league hitters and had no problem at all putting them away, getting Javier Baez to swing through a 99 mph fastball for strike three before inducing a weak groundout from Austin Meadows. Matt Vierling, who Detroit picked up from Philadelphia in the offseason in the Gregory Soto trade, went down on strikes to end the frame. The buzz around Tiedemann is growing louder, and while his chances of breaking camp on the Blue Jays roster are remote, the top prospect is well on his way to making his big-league debut some time in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Already impressing in camp

    Tiedemann was hitting 96-97 mph with his fastball in a bullpen session Friday and drew raves from catcher Danny Jansen, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    "The fastball comes out hot and doesn't seem to really be straight, which is a good thing - it's got some ride, it's got some run on it," Jansen said afterward. "The action was great on his changeup, you could tell it's a pitch that he's always had. It's a good feel pitch for him. Then his slider was the same thing, it's a good pitch." Tiedemann had a breakout campaign in the minors last season, and while the 20-year-old lefty is almost certain to begin the 2023 season at Triple-A, he may not be there long. Alek Manoah had a similar minor-league trajectory and made only three starts for Triple-A Buffalo in 2021 before getting called up for good that May, so the Blue Jays organization has a track record of promoting top pitching prospects as soon as they seem ready. Lackluster options Yusei Kikuchi and Mitch White (shoulder) are the current contenders for the fifth starter job, but if neither one seizes the opportunity in camp or early in the regular season, Tiedemann could be the next man up.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Named Toronto's top minor leaguer

    Tiedemann was named the Blue Jays' 2022 Minor League Player of the Year by Baseball America after putting up a 2.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 117:29 K:BB over 18 starts across three levels this season.

    Tiedemann finished the year with an 11-inning stint in Double-A, where he looked just as good as he had in Single-A and High-A. This was a spectacular breakout season for the 2021 third-round pick, with the only drawback being that he pitched a mere 78.2 innings. It'll take some time for Tiedemann to ramp up to an MLB workload, but all signs are pointing up for him.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Moving to Double-A

    Tiedemann will make his debut for Double-A New Hampshire on Friday and is scheduled to pitch no more than three innings, Scott Mitchell of reports.

    Tiedemann hasn't made a minor-league appearance in nearly a month, as the Jays shut him down for a while to manage the 19-year-old's innings in his first pro season. The promising lefty has sailed past the competition in his first two stops this year, and it'll be worth watching his performance in Double-A. He may have a chance to make his MLB debut at some point in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Dominant again for Vancouver

    Tiedemann struck out nine and allowed three hits and a walk over five scoreless innings for High-A Vancouver on Friday in a win over Tri-City.

    The 19-year-old southpaw continues to soar up prospect rankings with a breakout campaign. In four starts since his promotion to High-A, Tiedemann has a 0.46 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 28:3 K:BB through 19.2 innings, and the third-round pick in the 2021 draft is looking like an absolute steal for the Blue Jays. Tiedemann's fastball sits 95-96 mph and he pairs it with a changeup and slider that have both flashed plus, as all three pitches were producing a CSW rate of over 35 percent at Single-A prior to his promotion last month. While the organization won't want to over-extend a promising teenage arm in his first pro season, it seems likely Tiedemann will get a look at Double-A batters this summer if he remains unchallenged in the Northwest League.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Moving up to High-A

    The Blue Jays are expected to promote Tiedemann from Single-A Dunedin to have him make his High-A Vancouver debut Friday, Scott Mitchell of reports.

    Vancouver will break in two new starting pitchers in its rotation this week, as Yosver Zulueta is scheduled to make the jump from Dunedin to make his High-A debut Thursday. Tiedemann earned the call-up to Vancouver after delivering a 1.80 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 49:13 K:BB across 30 innings at Dunedin.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Perfect start at Single-A

    Tiedemann had the best start of his career Friday for Single-A Dunedin, striking out nine over five perfect innings.

    The 91st overall pick in the 2021 draft, Tiedemann didn't make his pro debut until this season as a 19-year-old at Single-A. He has gone exactly five innings in each of his first four starts and has not allowed a run while giving up just two hits total over his last three starts. Tiedemann walked four batters in both his second and third starts of the campaign, but that's the one blemish on his early resume. He has a mid-90s fastball and leans on a strong changeup, which is a good recipe for a 6-foot-4 lefty to have success in the lower levels.
