Marlins' Zach Thompson: Downed by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (2-3) took the loss Friday as the Marlins fell 5-2 to the Padres, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three.

The rookie right-hander settled down after spotting the Padres a 3-0 lead through two frames, but the Marlins' bats couldn't climb out of the hole. Thompson has done a great job plugging a hole in the Miami rotation, posting a 2.45 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB through his first 33 big-league innings, but the league might be figuring him out.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Works four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) allowed two unearned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision versus Philadelphia on Saturday. The game was suspended in the 10th inning with the score tied at 2-2.

The right-hander had some trouble in the first inning, yielding runs on a sacrifice fly by Andrew McCutchen and an RBI double by Rhys Hoskins. Thompson was taken off the hook when Jesus Aguilar hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to tie the game before rain in Philadelphia forced extra innings to be played Sunday. Thompson has a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB through 28 innings this year. He lines up for a tough matchup in his next start, tentatively scheduled for next weekend's four-game series versus San Diego.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Cleared to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) is slated to start Saturday's game against the Phillies, Craig Mish of reports.

The rookie missed his final start before the All-Star break while recovering from an illness, but the midseason intermission has afforded him ample recovery time. The 27-year-old right-hander has been a pleasant surprise for Miami through his first five big-league starts, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB across 24 innings.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Scratched from Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is feeling under the weather and was scratched from Friday's start against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The right-hander was slated to make his final start before the All-Star break Friday versus Atlanta, but he won't be able to pitch due to the ailment. Trevor Rogers and Pablo Lopez are penciled in as the starters for Saturday and Sunday, respectively, so Thompson likely won't pitch again until after the midseason festivities. The Marlins are expected to employ a bullpen game Friday in his absence.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Whiffs six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson allowed three runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Sunday.

While Thompson didn't allow much, three of the hits he gave up went for extra bases -- a two-run home run by Ronald Acuna and a pair of Dansby Swanson doubles. The right-hander continues to put together good outings, as Sunday was Thompson's second straight quality start. He has a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB through 24 innings spanning five appearances. He carries a 2-2 record into next weekend's rematch with Atlanta.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Start pushed to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will start Sunday in Atlanta instead of Saturday as previously scheduled, Craig Mish of reports.

The rookie right-hander will swap spots in the rotation with Sandy Alcantara, who will now take the mound Saturday. Thompson has pitched well in four starts since making his debut in early June with a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB across 18 innings.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Shines in Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out a career-high 11 to pick up the win against the Nationals on Saturday.

Thompson earned a quality start with his terrific performance, limiting Washington to an RBI double by Juan Soto in the first inning and another by Starlin Castro in the fourth. The 27-year-old Thompson now owns an impressive 25:6 K:BB through his first 18 major-league innings, and he's allowed just two earned runs over his past three starts.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Unlucky loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (1-2) allowed an unearned run on three walks and struck out seven in four no-hit innings, taking the loss Sunday versus the Cubs.

Thompson pitched well Sunday, but Miami's offense went quiet. In the third inning, Jason Heyward got aboard with a walk, reached third on an error and scored on a passed ball, which was enough to stick the right-hander with his second loss. Thompson has pitched well in 12 innings across his first three starts, allowing just three runs (two earned), eight hits and four walks. He's also struck out 14. The 27-year-old lines up to face Washington next weekend if he gets another turn in the rotation.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Blanks Atlanta for first MLB win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (1-1) picked up the win Saturday, giving up four hits over five scoreless innings in a 4-2 victory over Atlanta. He struck out six without walking a batter.

In only his second big-league start, the unheralded 27-year-old held the Atlanta offense in check over 66 pitches (45 strikes) and lasted just long enough to collect his first win. Thompson hadn't tossed more than three innings in any outing this year, either for Miami or for Triple-A Jacksonville, but with the Marlins scrambling to find warm bodies to plug into the rotation right now, he will continue to get stretched out after this strong performance.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Deemed fine after first MLB start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said after Monday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox that Thompson is feeling fine after his start and was pulled in the fourth inning merely as a precaution, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Thompson was the pitcher of record in the contest after giving up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out one over three innings.

The 27-year-old stepped into the Miami rotation for his big-league debut and was under a strict pitch count after having worked no more than three innings in any of his eight appearances at Triple-A Jacksonville prior to his recent call-up. Rather than as the result of any sort of injury, Thompson looks to have been pulled early due to workload concerns. After tossing 55 pitches Monday, Thompson should have his restriction bumped up another 10-to-20 pitches if he's needed to make another start this weekend versus Atlanta.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was removed from Monday's start against the Red Sox with an apparent injury, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The 27-year-old allowed two runs on four hits with a strikeout and a walk over three frames to open his big-league debut. but the training staff accompanied him to the mound for the fourth inning, and he was pulled after tossing a couple warmup pitches. The specifics of Thompson's injury remain unclear, but it's yet another blow for an already depleted starting rotation for Miami.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Starting in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Thompson would start Monday's game in Boston, Christina De Nicola of reports.

The 27-year-old righty gets a tough assignment in his MLB debut, facing off against a Red Sox offense that ranks seventh in the majors this season with a 107 wRC+ versus right-handed pitching. Prior to being called up over the weekend, Thompson had only built up to three innings over his eight outings at Triple-A Jacksonville, so he could be piggybacked in Monday's outing. The Marlins recalled Jacksonville starter Daniel Castano on Monday, and he would likely represent the top candidate to eat innings behind Thompson.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Contract selected by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson's contract was selected by the Marlins on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Thompson signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins in December, and he'll now join the major-league roster after Cody Poteet (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list as part of a shuffle. The right-handed Thompson served as a multi-inning reliever for Triple-A Jacksonville early in the season and posted a 6.60 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 15 innings, but he could be a candidate to take Poteet's spot in the starting rotation going forward.

Marlins' Zach Thompson: Latches on with Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins on Thursday, according to his personal Twitter account.

It is unclear if this comes with an invite to big-league camp. Thompson, a fifth-round pick in 2015, had previously only pitched in the White Sox's organization. He most recently logged a 5.50 ERA, 4.03 xFIP, 1.45 WHIP and 78 strikeouts in 70.1 innings as a multi-inning reliever at Triple-A in 2019.
