Jake Thompson tossed five innings of one-run ball in Tuesday’s 4-1 victory over the Nationals.
Thompson wasn’t efficient, needing 94 pitches to cover his five frames, but he limited the Nats to just four hits and a walk while recording five strikeouts. A Howie Kendrick solo shot was all Washington was able to tally off the right-hander. He hasn’t been pitching deep into games, but Thompson has allowed only two runs over his previous three outings. This was likely his last start of the season. Sep 26 - 10:23 PM

A cross-country matchup with the Dodgers in Philadelphia is on tap for Thompson on Tuesday.

Jake Thompson was tagged for seven runs (five earned) over five innings in a loss to the Nationals on Friday.

The big blow as an inside-the-park grand slam from Michael Taylor in the third inning. Thompson gave up seven hits and walked a pair while failing to strike out any of the 25 batters he faced. This comes after he struck out seven batters over six innings of one-run ball in his last start against the Marlins. The young right-hander will try to get back on track when he faces the Marlins next time out.

More starts like this one will go a long way in securing a starting spot next year. He'll get a chance to continue the run on Friday when Philadelphia travels to Washington.

Jake Thompson gave up seven runs -- two earned -- in five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

The ERA was salvaged, but Thompson still gave up three homers as part of a seven-run third inning. He's not without some potential, but he's a poor bet for fantasy purposes right now.

Phillies recalled RHP Jake Thompson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

May 5 - 3:31 PM

Phillies optioned RHP Jake Thompson to Triple-A Lehigh Valley; re-assigned RHP Dalier Hinojosa, INF Hector Gomez and C Logan Moore to minor league camp.

Thompson was already on the outside looking in for a rotation spot when he arrived to camp, and he fell further behind when he got a late start due to a sore wrist. The good news is he's healthy now and there should be an opportunity for him in the Phils' rotation at some point this season.
Mar 24 - 9:18 AM

Making his first start this spring, Jake Thomspon pitched three scoreless innings Tuesday against the Twins.

It was his second outing overall. Thompson dealt with a right wrist soreness last month, leaving him with only a couple of opportunities to make a strong impression this spring. He could still be the first starter called up by the Phillies this year, but he'll have plenty of competition in Triple-A.
