Rays' Ryan Thompson: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson underwent thoracic outlet surgery Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson hadn't appeared at the big-league level since late June due to a shoulder issue which eventually required surgery. He's expected to be ready for spring training.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Set for thoracic outlet surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) will undergo surgery in the near future to address thoracic outlet syndrome, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson was originally shut down in late August while experiencing lingering soreness in his right shoulder, and he was eventually diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. The 29-year-old is without a specific return timeline but is expected to be ready for spring training.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Slated to visit with doctors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) will visit with doctors in the coming days to help determine the extent of his injury, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson was shut down in late August since he continued to experience soreness in his shoulder, and he hasn't yet resumed throwing. The right-hander's upcoming examination is expected to determine whether his injury is related to thoracic outlet syndrome, and a better timetable for his return will likely be revealed after he visits with doctors.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Shut down from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) was recently shut down from throwing due to ongoing soreness in his shoulder, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The right-hander's return from the injured list was pushed back a few days when he was struck by a comebacker in the leg last week, and his return will now be delayed significantly longer. It's unclear how long Thompson will be shut down, but there's a chance it could prevent him from rejoining the Rays before the end of the regular season.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Return timeline pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays aren't expected to bring Thompson (shoulder) back from the 60-day injured list for at least a few more days after he was struck on the leg by a comebacker in his latest rehab appearance at Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

On the shelf since late June with right shoulder inflammation, Thompson was cleared to begin a rehab assignment in mid-August and has made five appearances between the rookie-level Florida Complex League and Triple-A. Thompson doesn't appear to have suffered a major snag in his recovery program after being struck by the comebacker, but he won't be able to make his next rehab appearance until Thursday while he heals up from the minor injury. With that in mind, Thompson may have to wait until the first full week of September before rejoining the big club.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Back on mound in Durham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) fired a scoreless eighth inning in Triple-A Durham's loss to Jacksonville on Sunday, allowing a hit and a walk while recording a strikeout.

Thompson had reported feeling some shoulder tightness after his rehab appearance Wednesday, but he returned to the mound Friday with a scoreless inning before repeating the feat Sunday. The right-hander has now logged four rehab outings overall with the Bulls, and assuming he remains free of setbacks, he could be ready for activation from the 60-day IL when first eligible Friday.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Residual fatigue after rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) felt "Ok, not great" following his rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

The description of Thompson's condition a day after his sharp seven-pitch outing came from manager Kevin Cash himself. The right-handed reliever can't be activated for another week anyhow, so Thompson should have additional opportunities to build up his stamina and could always stay on the injured list for a bit longer if necessary.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Impressive in first Durham outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) fired a scoreless eighth inning in Triple-A Durham's win over Jacksonville on Wednesday, allowing a hit while recording two strikeouts.

Despite allowing a hit, Thompson couldn't have been more efficient in terms of location, as he fired all seven of his pitches for strikes. The 29-year-old's appearance Wednesday was actually the second of his rehab assignment, as he also logged a scoreless inning for the FCL Rays on Monday. Thompson's recent transfer to the 60-day injured list means he can't be activated before Aug. 27, so he should have a chance to make at least a couple more appearances, at minimum, with the Bulls.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Set to begin rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash announced that Thompson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Thompson has been working his way back from shoulder inflammation that has sidelined him since late June. The right-hander most recently tossed a live batting practice session Friday, and he has now gotten the green light to begin a rehab stint. Given the length of Thompson's absence, he's likely to get a handful of outings under his belt with Durham before being activated, which means he probably won't return to the Rays' bullpen until the last few days of August at the earliest.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Rehab assignment coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said Thompson (shoulder) could begin a rehab assignment in the rookie-level Florida Complex League early next week, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Before the Rays map out a rehab schedule for Thompson, he'll first need to make it through a live batting practice session Friday without issue. Thompson currently resides on the 60-day injured list and isn't eligible to rejoin the Tampa Bay bullpen until late August.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Logs another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) completed a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson has now completed two side sessions in the last three days without incident, a sign that he could be ready to take the next step forward in his rehab. After being moved to the 60-day injured list earlier this month, Thompson won't be eligible to rejoin the Tampa Bay bullpen until the final week of August at the earliest.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Bullpen session successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Thompson's rehab hasn't been progressing as quickly as the team had initially hoped, but his successful return to the mound Saturday is a significant step in his recovery. Since the right-hander isn't eligible to return until from the 60-day injured list until Aug. 27, the team will see how his shoulder responds in the coming days before determining when his next throwing session will occur.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Slated to throw bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Thompson was transferred to the 60-day injured list earlier in the week, but he'll continue mound work following Tuesday's transaction. The right-hander isn't eligible to return until early September, but he's still making progress following his brief shutdown in July.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays transferred Thompson (shoulder) on Tuesday from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson was shut down in late June with right shoulder inflammation, and while the Rays were initially optimistic that he would return from the IL within a month, he isn't progressing in his recovery as quickly as was anticipated. The Rays haven't indicated where Thompson currently stands in his rehab program, but the move to the 60-day IL means he likely won't be ready to rejoin the big club until September.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Bullpen session upcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) is expected to throw a bullpen session Friday or Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Thompson was shut down from throwing shortly before the All-Star break after experiencing some discomfort during a session, but he's apparently now set to pick things back up. The 29-year-old isn't expected to be activated at any point during the initial series of the second half against Atlanta.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Won't return out of break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) isn't expected to make his return from the 10-day injured list until the final week of July, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Thompson was placed on the IL on June 30 and was recently shut down from throwing, though he looks poised to resume activity shortly. However, the Rays will still want to see Thompson complete a rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham before he rejoins the active roster, so he'll likely remain sidelined for the club's first three or four series coming out of the All-Star break. The 29-year-old righty owns a 2.38 ERA and 1.03 WHIP to go with a 37:9 K:BB, 11 holds and three wins across 36 relief appearances this season.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Shut down from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (shoulder) has been shut down from throwing temporarily, the team's official site reports.

The right-hander was able to throw Sunday and Monday with relatively minimal soreness, but he then felt an increase in discomfort during a Thursday session. As such, Thompson was given Friday and Saturday off, and he'll attempt to resume throwing Sunday. If all goes without setbacks, the reliever should be ready to return sometime shortly after the All-Star break.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was placed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Wednesday, retroactive to June 28, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Thompson gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning Sunday but still earned the hold against the Angels. It's not yet clear whether his injury will force him to miss more than the minimum of 10 days, but he'll be eligible to return just before the All-Star break. The Rays are hopeful that he'll have a short stay on the injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Left-hander Ryan Sherriff was recalled from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Up to nine holds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson garnered his ninth hold in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday, firing two-thirds scoreless innings during which he recorded two strikeouts.

Thompson inherited a certifiable mess from bullpen mate J.P. Feyereisen, who walked three of the four batters he faced to open the eighth inning and jam the bases. However, Thompson was masterful when called upon, recording strikeouts of Ryan Zimmerman and Josh Bell to snuff out the threat. The 28-year-old continues to be one of manager Kevin Cash's most reliable later-inning options, and he's now generated nine scoreless efforts in his last 10 appearances.

Rays' Ryan Thompson: Gets seventh hold in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson recorded his seventh hold in a win over the Yankees on Monday, firing a scoreless eighth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

Thompson was optimally efficient, firing 10 of 12 pitches for strikes during a dominant frame. The right-hander has churned out six scoreless appearances in his last seven trips to the mound, a 6.2-inning stretch during which he's posted a win in addition to Monday's hold and lowered his ERA from 2.55 to 2.22.
