Dodgers optioned OF Trayce Thompson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Dodgers recalled OF Trayce Thompson from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Thompson earns the call to the bigs to help fill in for Franklin Gutierrez, who just hit the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. In 236 at-bats last season, the 26-year-old outfielder hit .225/.302/.436 with 13 homers and 32 RBI. He probably won't receive enough playing time for fantasy relevancy.

Dodgers optioned OF Trayce Thompson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He was passed over in favor of Kike Hernandez and Scott Van Slyke. Thompson could have helped his case with a good showing in the Cactus League but instead he hit just .226 with 12 strikeouts over 31 at-bats. Thompson is coming off a stress fracture in his back that caused him to miss the entire second half of 2016.
Mar 30 - 8:44 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) will play in back-to-back Cactus League games soon.

The Dodgers have been slow-playing Thompson all spring after he suffered stress fractures in his back last season. He's surely not going to be available on Opening Day.
Mar 21 - 7:49 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) is hitting cleanup and hitting cleanup in his Cactus League debut on Saturday.

Thompson missed the second half of the 2016 season due to stress fractures in his back and has been brought along slowly in spring training. He's one of many options in a crowded outfield picture for the Dodgers but should be on the Opening Day roster as long as he's healthy.
Mar 11 - 11:13 AM

Trayce Thompson (back) is expected to make his Cactus League debut on Saturday.

Thompson missed the entire second half last season due to a pair of stress fractures in his back, so he has been brought along slowly this spring. If healthy, he's one of many options for the Dodgers' outfield. The 25-year-old amassed 13 homers with a .738 OPS over 80 games last season.
Mar 8 - 11:34 AM

Trayce Thompson (back) is expected to make his Cactus League debut next week.

Thompson has recently progressed to participating in simulated games, which is the final step before appearing in Cactus League contests. Thompson missed the second half of the 2016 campaign due to his back injury, so the club is proceeding with extra caution this spring.
Mar 4 - 3:05 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) saw 5-6 at-bats in a simulated game Thursday at Dodgers camp.

He was joined by Enrique Hernandez and Willie Calhoun. Thompson only faced minor league pitchers on Thursday but is expected to go against left-hander Hyun-jin Ryu in his next simulated game on Saturday. The Dodgers are taking things slow with Thompson after a back injury cost him the second half of last season. He's still on track for Opening Day.
Mar 2 - 7:56 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) will play in simulated games this spring before being cleared for Cactus League action.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Thompson is "on track" in his recovery from a pair of stress fractures in his back, but that doesn't mean he's on the same schedule as his teammates. The outfielder had expressed previously that he wanted to get into game action by March 1, but it's unclear whether that will happen.
Feb 24 - 12:34 PM

Trayce Thompson (back) is behind schedule in Dodgers' camp.

Thompson missed the second half last year due to a pair of stress fractures in his back and he's progressing slowly as camp opens. He's running right now, but his previously-stated goal of being ready for Cactus League games on March 1 might be unrealistic. Stay tuned.
Feb 15 - 3:29 PM

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said that Trayce Thompson (back) is a question mark for the beginning of spring training.

Friedman explained that while Thompson has been moving toward taking part in baseball activities as his rehab progresses, his availability for spring training remains dodgy. He has not yet swung a bat this offseason. The 25-year-old outfielder missed the second half of the 2016 campaign due to a pair of stress fractures in his back. In 80 games played last season, he hit .225/.302/.436 with 13 homers and five steals.
Jan 11 - 5:45 PM

Dodgers activated OF Trayce Thompson from the 60-day disabled list.

Thompson didn't play at all during the second half of the season due to two stress fractures in his back. The 25-year-old got off to a hot start in 2016 before finishing with a .225/.302/.436 batting line to go along with 13 homers and five steals over 80 games.

Trayce Thompson (back) hopes to resume baseball activities in the next couple of days.

Trayce Thompson (back) said his chances of returning this year are "dim."

He's still dealing with two stress fractures in his back and hasn't reported much progress. Thompson got off to a strong start this season but was slumping when he landed on the disabled list in mid-July. The 25-year-old has hit .225 this year with a career-high 13 homers in 236 at-bats.
