Mets' Stephen Ridings: Sent outright to Triple-A
Ridings cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.
The move frees up a spot on the Mets' 40-man roster. Ridings, 27, has made just 10 appearances in the minors this season after recovering from a lat strain, holding a 6.75 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Stephen Ridings: Thriving at Triple-A
Ridings (lat) has made three appearances and has given up two earned runs on one hit and three walks while striking out five in 2.2 innings since being optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on June 15.
Ridings opened the season on the 60-day injured list while recovering from a right lat strain but was cleared to resume pitching in minor-league games in early June. Because of the extensive time that Ridings missed, the Mets will likely want to see the right-hander pitch effectively in the minors over a longer period of time before he gets a look in the big-league bullpen....

Mets' Stephen Ridings: Remains on IL
Ridings (lat) remains on the Mets' 60-day injured list and moved his rehab assignment from Single-A St. Lucie to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com previously reported Thursday that Ridings was reinstated from the IL and optioned to Syracuse, but he'll instead remain off the Mets' 40-man roster for the time being while he continues his rehab program.

The Mets activated Ridings (lat) from the 60-day injured list Thursday and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Mets' Stephen Ridings: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Mets transferred Ridings (lat) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
Since Ridings didn't appear in any Grapefruit League games prior to opening the season on the 15-day IL, he'll be eligible to come off the 60-day IL as soon as May 29. It's unclear if he'll be ready to go by that point, however, as the Mets haven't provided any updates regarding where he stands in his recovery from the right lat strain that landed him on the shelf. Whenever he advances to the point of being ready to pitch in games, Ridings will likely need multiple minor-league rehab appearances before the Mets consider activating him.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Stephen Ridings: Lands on 15-day injured list
The Mets placed Ridings (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list with a right lat strain.
Ridings is still working his way back from a shoulder injury that limited him to just two minor-league rehab appearances in 2022, and though he was expected to pitch in a Grapefruit League game at some point, that never came to fruition before spring training. The Mets are now classifying his injury as a lat strain, but it's unclear whether he suffered any sort of setback with the shoulder issue he dealt with a season ago.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Stephen Ridings: Might not pitch in spring games
Manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Ridings (shoulder) might not be ready to pitch in a Grapefruit League game before the end of spring training, Michael Mayer of Metsmerized reports.
Ridings has resumed throwing off a mound as he works his way back from a shoulder injury which cost him most of the 2022 season. However, he's still ramping back up slowly and appears to be a lock to begin the season on the injured list. Ridings was claimed off waivers from the Yankees back in November.... See More ...

Mets' Stephen Ridings: Throwing off mound Monday
Ridings (shoulder) was spotted throwing off the slope of a mound Monday at the Mets' spring workout, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Ridings, whom the Mets claimed off waivers from the Yankees in November, is one of the few members of the 40-man roster who has yet to make his Grapefruit League debut, as the organization appears to be taking things slowly with the 27-year-old reliever while he works back from the right shoulder injury that sidelined him for most of the 2022 season. Given that he's not yet facing hitters with two and a half weeks to go before Opening Day, Ridings appears likely to begin the season on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Stephen Ridings: Moves across town
Ridings (shoulder) was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Tuesday.
Ridings made his big-league debut for the Yankees in 2021, throwing five innings of relief. He battled shoulder issues for most of the 2022 season, throwing just a pair of rehab innings. If he gets healthy over the winter, he could push for a low-leverage relief role next spring.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Rehab moves to Triple-A
Ridings (shoulder) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

Ridings (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Somerset on Saturday.
Ridings has been facing live hitters for several weeks and will return to game action in the minors Saturday.

Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Nearing rehab assignment
Ridings (shoulder) has been facing live hitters and is expected to begin a rehab assignment soon, Max Goodman of SI.com reports.
Ridings hasn't pitched in a game for over a year and has made very slow progress in his recovery from a right shoulder impingement. However, he appears to have finally turned a corner, as Goodman reports that the righty reliever has been throwing without pain. With the season winding down, it's uncertain if Ridings will have enough time to fully ramp up and join the Yankees' bullpen, but it remains a possibility if he begins a minor-league rehab assignment in short order and doesn't encounter any setbacks....

Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Steps back on mound
Ridings (shoulder) announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he completed a bullpen session.
Ridings has been on the injured list all season while recovering from a right shoulder impingement that surfaced early in spring training. Due to his lengthy layoff, Ridings will likely require at least a few weeks to build up and complete a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated from the 60-day IL.... See More ...

Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Not showing progress
Ridings (shoulder) hasn't progressed in his activity beyond playing light catch, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports.
Ridings has been out all season with a right shoulder impingement, and his likelihood of making it back before the end of the campaign could be narrowing given his lack of progress in his recovery. The right-hander had done some throwing from flat ground in May, but he was subsequently shut down and hasn't made significant strides since. It's unclear exactly what is holding him back, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone was vague on the subject, stating, "It's just been a battle. He's still not doing much. I don't know that it's setbacks. He just hasn't gotten to a point where he's done much. He's played light catch, but he hasn't done more than that. He's had a lot of tests."... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Not close to return
Ridings (shoulder) still isn't throwing, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone recently indicated that he expects it to "be a while" before the reliever returns to action, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Ridings was placed on the 60-day IL with a right shoulder impingement in early April. He began throwing from flat ground in mid-May but was shut down a few weeks later, and he has yet to resume a throwing program. Ridings isn't expected to need surgery, but his return timeline is hazy.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: No longer throwing
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Ridings (shoulder) isn't throwing at the moment, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Ridings was reportedly throwing from flat ground a few weeks ago, so he may have encountered a setback in his recovery from a right shoulder impingement. However, Boone indicated that surgery is not being considered, thus it's unclear what Ridings' path toward a return currently looks like. Until more information is provided, a timeline for the right-handed hurler to make his season debut will remain murky.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Throwing from flat ground
Ridings has begun to throw from flat ground as he recovers from a right shoulder impingement, Joey Pollizze of MLB.com reports.
Ridings has been on the 60-day injured list since April 5, so he isn't eligible to return until early June. The right-hander has yet to pitch this season after entering spring with shoulder and back issues. Ridings will likely need a rehab assignment and may not have a spot on the 26-man roster even when he's physically ready to return to game action.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Making progress
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Ridings (shoulder) is making progress, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Ridings is currently on the injured list with a right shoulder impingement and isn't eligible to return until early June. In five games last season, the right-hander allowed one run while posting a 7:2 K:BB across five innings.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Lands on 60-day injured list
Ridings was placed on the 60-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement Tuesday.
Ridings tossed five major-league innings last season after an impressive showing in the upper minors, but he won't get to add to that total until at least early June. It's unclear exactly when he's expected to return, and he may not have a guaranteed spot on the 40-man roster to return to given his relative inexperience.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Not yet throwing
Ridings has yet to start throwing due to shoulder and back issues, Max Goodman of SI.com reports.
Ridings has pitched only five big-league innings, though he fared well by posting a 7:2 K:BB and allowing only one earned run across the five frames last season. He could compete for a bullpen role out of spring training if he heals up relatively quickly, but he may otherwise be destined to start the season at the Triple-A level.... See More ... See Less
