Mets' Tommy Hunter: Receives camp invite from Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter is working through league protocols to rejoin his teammates after previously testing positive for COVID-19, Todd Zolecki of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Will be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (forearm) is expected to be ready to go by Opening Day, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Hunter has been working his way back from surgery on his right flexor tendon, a procedure he underwent back in July of 2019. He would have opened the season on the injured list had the campaign begun as scheduled, but the delayed start has bought him enough time to get healthy. The veteran has 21 career saves and could add a few more to his tally this season, though the Phillies will likely be happy as long as he can manage to be a serviceable middle reliever.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Expected to open on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (forearm) is expected to open the season on the injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

The Phillies brought Hunter back on a major-league deal despite the fact that the veteran is still recovering from surgery on his right flexor tendon. This time last season, he was also dealing with a flexor issue, which wound up keeping him out until late June. It doesn't appear that things will go the same way this season, however, as he's already throwing regular bullpen sessions.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Two weeks from mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (forearm) is expected to throw off a mound in two weeks, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Hunter's season ended prematurely due to right flexor surgery in mid-July. He appears to have enough time to get up to speed by Opening Day, provided his recovery proceeds without setbacks.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Gets MLB deal from Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (forearm) passed his physical and is taking part in drills Wednesday at Phillies camp after signing a major-league deal with the club, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Reports that Hunter agreed to a deal with the Phillies surfaced a few days ago, but it wasn't apparent whether he would attend camp as a member of the 40-man roster or as a non-roster invitee. The Phillies cleared up any ambiguity about Hunter's situation by shifting David Robertson (elbow) to the 60-day injured list, thereby opening up a 40-man spot for the 33-year-old righty. Hunter's 2019 campaign ended in mid-July after he required surgery to address a right flexor tendon injury, but his ability to pass a physical suggests he won't face any restrictions this spring. He'll be looking to secure a middle-relief or setup role with the club.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Back with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (forearm) signed with the Phillies on Friday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

The financial details of the contract have not yet been released. Hunter had been paid $18 million by the Phillies over the previous two years, a deal which didn't entirely go as planned as he threw just 5.1 innings in the second season of the contract while battling arm troubles. If healthy, Hunter is a quality arm, as he owns a 3.19 ERA dating back to his conversion to relief back in 2013, but there's plenty of reason to doubt his health heading into his age-33 season.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter underwent surgery on his right flexor tendon Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Hunter was sent to the shelf July 14 due to a right forearm strain, and it was later determined that he needed surgery to repair his flexor tendon. His UCL was looked at during the procedure, and it was determined that it did not need to be surgically repaired. Skipper Gabe Kapler confirmed that Hunter will miss the remainder of the 2019 campaign after going under the knife, per Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Out with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right forearm strain.

Hunter missed the first three months of the season with a flexor strain in his right elbow and only rejoined the Phillies in late June, but he'll now make his way back to the IL. According to Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic, the 33-year-old is hoping to return to the mound this season, but a specific recovery timeline won't come into focus until he is further evaluated.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Primed for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday.

Hunter has been out since February due to a flexor strain but is ready to join the Phillies after four minor-league rehab outings. The 29-year-old had a 3.80 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 51:15 K:BB over 64 innings with Philadelphia last season and figures to work his way into a high-leverage role if he performs well early.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Could return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) could be activated from the injured list during this weekend's series against the Marlins, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Hunter has been on the shelf all season with a flexor strain in his right elbow. He's made four rehab appearances, allowing one run on three hits while striking out six across five innings. Hunter could make two additional rehab appearances Friday and Saturday before returning. Either way, the right-hander appears to be close to making his 2019 big-league debut.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Advances to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) will make another rehab outing with Double-A Reading Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Hunter could have been cleared after a re-evaluation Monday, but the team evidently decided he needs at least one more rehab outing. He allowed one run and recorded a 4:0 K:BB in three rehab innings for High-A Clearwater.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Could return early next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) will make another rehab appearance Sunday for High-A Clearwater and could be cleared to return after that, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

A right flexor strain has kept Hunter out of action since late February. He's made just two rehab appearances but will be reevaluated Monday following his third outing over the weekend and could be deemed ready to go at that point.

Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Clearwater on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Hunter has been dealing with a right flexor strain since late February. He's been throwing for over a month now, but the length of his absence means that his rehab stint is unlikely to be a short one.

June 7, 2019 05:56 PM
Phillies' Tommy Hunter: Closing in on rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter (elbow) is expected to embark on a rehab assignment within the next 7-to-10 days, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Hunter has been on the injured list since suffering a right elbow strain in February, but he's since resumed throwing and successfully tossed a side session May 29. Considering he hasn't pitched in a big-league contest yet this season, he'll likely need at least a handful of minor-league appearances before coming off the shelf.
