Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Nearing throwing program
Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Monday that Tiedemann (biceps) is expected to resume a throwing program next week, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The talented young left-hander exited his May 4 start with Double-A New Hampshire due to left biceps inflammation, an injury which could be related to the left shoulder soreness he dealt with during spring training. Fortunately for Tiedemann, his setback doesn't appear to be an overly significant one, though he may be two weeks or more away from returning to game action while he works to ramp back up again....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: MRI shows biceps inflammation
An MRI on Tiedemann's left shoulder has revealed biceps inflammation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
It would seem to be as good of a diagnosis as the Blue Jays could have hoped for. Tiedemann is considered week-to-week. The Jays' top prospect has been limited to just four starts this season because of arm issues.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Undergoing MRI on biceps
Tiedemann is undergoing an MRI on his left biceps Friday after exiting his start Thursday for Double-A New Hampshire, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
The initial diagnosis is biceps soreness, but Tiedemann will have imaging to hopefully rule out any structural issues. Injuries have been a problem for the young lefty to begin the season, as he missed the first couple weeks with a shoulder issue. The top prospect could push to make his big-league debut at some point in 2023, but he'll need to get healthy first.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Placed on 7-day IL
Tiedemann has been placed on the 7-day injured list by Double-A New Hampshire on Friday with left biceps discomfort.
Tiedemann felt the biceps discomfort during his start Thursday for the Fisher Cats. The left-hander will miss at least one turn in the rotation, but the results of the imaging have yet to be made public, so a long-term injury cannot be ruled out for the top pitching prospect in the Toronto system. If healthy, Tiedemann has the stuff to be a fantasy contributor in the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Being evaluated for biceps issue
Tiedemann is being evaluated for left biceps discomfort after making an early exit from his start Thursday at Double-A New Hampshire, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Tiedemann motioned to the dugout after throwing his 60th pitch of the game in the top of the fourth inning and was promptly removed. Early indications are that this biceps issue is unrelated to the shoulder trouble that caused him to miss the first couple weeks of the minor-league season, but there should be more clarity once further testing is conducted on the 20-year-old top prospect....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Early exit at Double-A
Tiedemann left his start Thursday at Double-A New Hampshire with an apparent arm injury, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Tiedemann called for a trainer immediately after throwing a pitch in the top of the fourth inning. He missed a couple of weeks in April due to left shoulder soreness and may now be headed back to the minor-league injured list. The highly-touted 20-year-old southpaw registered a sparkling 2.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 117:29 K:BB over his first 78.2 professional innings last summer between Low-A, High-A and Double-A....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Dominant in season debut
Tiedemann gave up two hits and struck out nine batters over three scoreless innings in his season debut for Double-A New Hampshire on Thursday.
That's not a typo -- every out he recorded Thursday came via strikeout. The 20-year-old southpaw made an early push in camp to open the year in the majors before a sore shoulder derailed his spring, but once he got healthy Tiedemann wasted no time demonstrating his arsenal is too much for Double-A hitters, as he touched 99 mph with his fastball while firing 35 of 49 pitches for strikes. The Blue Jays are going to carefully monitor his workload this season, but the team may have little choice but to try and challenge him with a promotion to Triple-A soon enough, and a big-league debut later in the season -- even if it's just in a bullpen role -- seems likely if he keeps dominating in the minors....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Season debut coming Thursday
Double-A New Hampshire plans to reinstate Tiedemann (shoulder) from the 7-day injured list to have him start Thursday versus Portland, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
The Blue Jays' top pitching prospect opened the season on the shelf after he experienced left shoulder soreness about a month ago, but he was never shut down from throwing and looks to be just about fully recovered from the injury. Tiedemann will still be eased in Thursday with a light workload, however, with Mitchell relaying that the southpaw is expected to be capped at around 50 pitches.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Recovering well from shoulder issue
Tiedemann (shoulder) is expected to join the Double-A New Hampshire rotation by mid-April, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Tiedemann battled some shoulder soreness in camp this spring, but he's made steady progress and is now closing on a return to live action. The 20-year-old left-hander was selected in the third round of the 2021 MLB Draft and worked to a stellar 2.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 117:29 K:BB over 78.2 innings last season between Low-A, High-A and Double-A ball. If he stays healthy, it's not out of the question Tiedemann makes his big-league debut later in the season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Set for lower workload
Tiedemann (shoulder) will begin the season at Double-A New Hampshire and pitch every sixth day instead of every fifth, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The young lefty dazzled early in camp with his 99 mph fastball before a bout of shoulder soreness slowed down the hype train. Tiedemann pitched an inning in a minor-league game Sunday and struck out two of the four batters he faced, however, so the issue seems to be behind him. The Blue Jays will keep a very careful eye on the 20-year-old's workload this season, but the organization's plans to have him throw fewer minor-league innings over the summer could be an indication they are open to the possibility of him joining the big-league staff later in the year....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Throwing bullpen Wednesday
Tiedemann (shoulder) is throwing another bullpen session Wednesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Tiedemann also was able to complete a bullpen session Saturday, and he continues to make progress from the minor left shoulder soreness that has plagued the southpaw since the middle of March. The top prospect in the Toronto system will begin the season with either Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo, but regardless of his landing spot, he has a great chance to make starts with the Blue Jays before the end of 2023....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: To throw off mound Saturday
Tiedemann (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
It's a day later than was originally planned, but the top prospect continues to progress as he works his way back from what the Blue Jays are viewing as minor left shoulder soreness. Tiedemann -- who was reassigned to minor-league camp earlier this week -- has been throwing on flat ground for a few days.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Cleared for flat-ground work
Tiedemann (shoulder) will throw off flat ground at Blue Jays camp Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Manager John Schneider noted that Tiedemann is scheduled to get back on the mound Friday for a bullpen session if he fares well while playing catch Wednesday. The Blue Jays' top pitching prospect had been tending to the sore shoulder before being reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, but the injury doesn't look to be anything that will cost him significant time -- if any -- to begin the season....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Reassigned to minors camp
Tiedemann (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Blue Jays on Monday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Tiedemann was recently shut down from throwing due to left shoulder soreness, but he likely was going to be sent to minor-league camp regardless of the injury. The top pitching talent in the Toronto system, Tiedemann was sensational in 2022, and assuming good health, he has a great opportunity to help the Blue Jays before the end of the 2023 campaign....

Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Dealing with sore shoulder
Manager John Schneider said Monday that Tiedemann was recently shut down for a couple days due to left shoulder soreness, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Tiedemann has since resumed long-toss throwing and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, so his shoulder injury seems to be relatively minor. However, any time a team's top pitching prospect is dealing with a sore shoulder, some level of concern is warranted. Tiedemann is headed back to the minors to start the season either way, but, if healthy and pitching well, he could push to make his MLB debut at some point in 2023.... See More ... See Less
