Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Pitches 3.2 innings as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson didn't factor into the decision during Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. He gave up two hits with two walks and struck out two across 3.2 scoreless innings.

Making the first big-league start of his career, Thompson was in control on the mound despite facing one of the best offenses in the National League. After the doubleheader, the Cubs' upcoming schedule will allow the team to get by with a four-man rotation until at least May 18, so Thompson will most likely be returned to Triple-A Iowa following his start.

Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Summoned for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs have recalled Thompson from Triple-A Iowa to start the second game of the Tuesday's doubleheader with the Dodgers, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Thompson will be making his first big-league start in the second half of the twin bill, stepping into the rotation as a replacement for Jake Arrieta, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right thumb abrasion. After the doubleheader, the Cubs' upcoming schedule will allow the team to get by with a four-man rotation until at least May 18, so Thompson will most likely be returned to Iowa following his start. Thompson made his MLB debut over the weekend, covering an inning of relief in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati. With that in mind, he'll likely have a limited pitch count in Tuesday's start.

Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Sent back to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was optioned to the Cubs' alternate training site Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Thompson spent just two days on the big-league roster, allowing two hits and a walk in a scoreless inning of work in his lone appearance. Joc Pederson (wrist) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Called up by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson earned his first major-league call-up Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Thompson has yet to pitch above Double-A and has made just three appearances over the last two years due to injury and last year's canceled minor-league season. In 158.2 career minor-league innings, he owns a 3.46 ERA and 1.09 WHIP, striking out 23.4 percent of opposing batters while walking 6.0 percent. Kyle Ryan was optioned in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Moves to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs optioned Thompson to Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

Thompson's demotion leaves the Cubs with 47 players still left in big-league camp as the club looks to pare down its active roster to 26 men ahead of Opening Day. The 26-year-old right-hander will get his first taste of Triple-A in 2021 after he previously made 14 starts for Double-A Tennessee between the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Cubs' Keegan Thompson: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson's contract was purchased by the Cubs on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

He missed most of 2019 with an undisclosed injury but spent this past summer at the Cubs' alternate training site. The 6-foot-1 righty turns 26 in March, so while he has only made one start at Double-A in his career, he could get some run in the majors as a depth bullpen arm now that he is on the 40-man roster.
