  • 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.

  • Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Rehab moves to Triple-A

    Ridings (shoulder) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    Ridings made a rehab assignment at Double-A Somerset on Saturday and struck out two in a scoreless innings. It's possible that he'll require several Triple-A appearances since he hasn't pitched in a major-league game in over a year.

  • Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Rehab assignment begins Saturday

    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. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander will have enough time to ramp up prior to the end of the regular season since he hasn't pitched in a game in over a year.

  • 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.

  • 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."

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Boone offered no elaboration about Ridings' current level of activity, but it's nonetheless an encouraging update about the 26-year-old's status. 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Ridings was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster Friday.

    He made five appearances in the majors last season and made his way back onto the 40-man prior to the Rule 5 draft. Ridings projects as a low-to-mid-leverage reliever.

  • Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Plays catch Friday

    Ridings (undisclosed) played catch Friday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    Ridings is working his way back from an unspecified injury that landed him on the injured list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Aug. 23. The 26-year-old received his first taste of the majors with five outings in August and allowed one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over five innings.

  • Yankees' Stephen Ridings: Heads back to minors

    Ridings was returned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

    Ridings had served as a replacement player in the Yankees' bullpen since early August, and he posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in five innings across five appearances since he joined the major-league roster. However, he'll return to the Triple-A club since Jordan Montgomery is expected to be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list to start Tuesday's matinee against the Red Sox.
