  • Ricky Tiedemann Wild Early On

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays top pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann is off to a wild start, walking nine batters over his first 8 1/3 innings in 2024 for Triple-A Buffalo. Tiedeman has also struggled to keep the ball in the yard in the early going, allowing three home runs over his first three starts. While the 21-year-old has been uneven at the beginning of the Triple-A season, he has ace-like upside and has flashed that with more strikeouts than innings pitched thus far. Look for Tiedeman to right the ship as he settles in to push his way to Toronto at some point this season.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Still In Mix For Rotation Spot?

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    If Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Kevin Gausman (shoulder) isn't ready to break camp with the team on Opening Day next week, manager John Schneider mentioned pitchers Mitch White, Yariel Rodriguez, Wes Parsons, Paolo Espino and Ricky Tiedemann as options to start the year in the rotation. "There are a lot of guys kind of in that conversation," Schneider said. Tiedemann, the team's top prospect per MLB Pipeline, is the most intriguing of the bunch, and he impressed Schneider with five strikeouts in three-plus innings in his Grapefruit League start on Thursday. Although it's probably still unlikely the Blue Jays push the 21-year-old southpaw to make his big-league debut at the start of 2024, it's another reminder that one of baseball's best overall pitching prospects should be stashed in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Records Five Strikeouts

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann tossed three innings and allowed one hit, one run and two walks while striking out five on Thursday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates in Grapefruit League action. Tiedemann, 21, was competing for a rotation spot, but with Thursday's announcement that Bowden Francis has won the fifth spot in the rotation, Tiedemann will be ticketed to begin the year at Triple-A Buffalo. The right-hander is one of the best pitching prospects in the game but has been limited in his young career with the injury bug. In two seasons, the left-hander has a career 2.71 ERA with 199 strikeouts in 122 2/3 innings (33 starts), with his highest level being Triple-A. Tiedemann has risen through the system and should absolutely be an option for the Blue Jays in 2023. His talent is too much to hide on the farm, and a strong start on the farm might force the Blue Jays to bring his talent to the big leagues. With enormous strikeout potential, Tiedemann is worth stashing in redraft leagues and should be rostered in all dynasty leagues.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Notches Two Strikeouts In Spring Debut

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays pitcherRicky Tiedemann(hamstring) struck out two batters while giving up one run on two hits in 1 1/3 IP in his spring debut against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. The Blue Jays lefty missed time this spring due to a minor hamstring and calf issue but has been working his way up. According to MLB Pipeline, the No. 29 overall prospect could make his major league debut earlier than anticipated with injuries to two of Toronto's key rotation pieces,Kevin Gausman(shoulder) andAlek Manoah(shoulder). Tiedemann racked up 58 Ks in 32 IP in Double-A for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, where he spent most of his time in the minors in 2023. He also dealt with control issues with a 13.7% BB%. That will need to come down if Tiedemann is to make Toronto's rotation in 2024.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Faces Hitters Sunday

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann (hamstring) faced hitters in a simulated game in camp on Sunday and took the time to fine-tune his changeup. Tiedemann, the No. 29 overall prospect in baseball per MLB Pipeline, is working his way back after a minor hamstring and calf issue cost him some time early in spring training. The young southpaw looked great on Sunday and is confident he can get up to the four-inning range by the end of camp. "Hopefully, late this coming week I'll be able to get back out there in a game," Tiedemann said. The 21-year-old has some of the best stuff in the game among pitching prospects, and with both Kevin Gausman and Alek Manoah dealing with shoulder injuries, it's possible that Tiedemann could open the 2024 regular season in Toronto's starting rotation.

  • Ricky Tiedemann To Face Live Hitters Soon

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays top prospect Ricky Tiedemann (hamstring) is feeling good after throwing a bullpen on Thursday, and it sounds like the next step is for him to face live hitters in camp soon. It should leave him plenty of time for a full ramp-up through March and into Opening Day late in March. The 21-year-old southpaw, one of the top overall pitching prospects in all of baseball, is still probably going to open the 2024 season with Triple-A Buffalo, especially considering he missed a big chunk of time last year in the minors due to an injury. Toronto isn't going to rush their best prospect to the big leagues, but he's still worth stashing in deep-mixed fantasy leagues due to his upside and the fact that he should make his MLB debut this year if he's healthy.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Plays Catch Wednesday

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann (left hamstring, calf) played catch as part of his recovery on Wednesday. Minor inflammation has limited Tiedemann early in camp, but his injury isn't believed to be very serious. MLB.com's latest injury update notes that "Tiedemann continues to play catch to keep his arm moving, and the Blue Jays should have a clearer plan in the coming days," adding that he should be available for the regular season if he doesn't need much longer to ramp up. The Jays would love to see him reach the majors after he produced a 1.98 FIP, a .199 opponent batting average, and 16.47 K/9 in the minors last year.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Considered Day-To-Day

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    An MRI exam on Toronto Blue Jays No. 1 prospect Ricky Tiedemann showed just minor inflammation between his left hamstring and calf muscles. Manager John Schneider isn't expecting the left-hander to miss much time and is calling him day-to-day. It's good news for Tiedemann, who missed considerable time in the minors last year with an injury. Tiedemann had to be scratched from making the start in the team's Grapefruit League opener on Saturday, although he could be back on the mound in short order this spring. While the 21-year-old southpaw has some of the best stuff of any pitching prospect in the game, Toronto isn't going to rush him to the big leagues, so don't be surprised if he begins the year at Triple-A Buffalo. Tiedemann is worth stashing in deep-mixed leagues, but fantasy managers will want to temper expectations for him in 2024.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Scratched With Left-Hamstring Tightness

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann (hamstring) has been scratched as the starter for Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Philadelphia Phillies due to left-hamstring tightness. The team doesn't think the injury is serious, but manager John Schneider said he'll have a better idea on Saturday. The Blue Jays aren't going to pitch one of the best pitching prospects in the game -- MLB Pipeline has him ranked as the No. 29 overall prospect -- especially after Tiedemann missed 10 weeks in 2023 with a biceps injury. The 21-year-old southpaw has some of the best stuff of any pitching prospect, but he's probably more likely to begin the season at Triple-A Buffalo, and Toronto will almost certainly keep him on a strict innings limit once he reaches the big leagues. Temper expectations in single-year fantasy leagues in 2024.

  • Ricky Tiedemann To Start Spring Opener

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann will make the start in the team's Grapefruit League opener on Saturday versus the Philadelphia Phillies. The 21-year-old is the team's top prospect entering the 2024 campaign and is fully expected to make his major-league debut this year, but he's expected to begin the season with Triple-A Buffalo. Tiedemann threw only 65 innings last year due to injuries, so the Blue Jays aren't going to rush him, and he'll most likely have a strict innings limit in both the minors and majors in 2024. He has an impressive arsenal and should already be rostered in dynasty/keeper leagues, but fantasy managers in single-year leagues should temper their expectations for Tiedemann at the major-league level in 2024.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Adds Muscle To His Frame

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann said that he put on around 19 pounds of muscle in the offseason. He entered last season at around 225 pounds and now is around 240 pounds. Ranked as the No. 29 overall prospect in baseball, the 21-year-old left-hander is generating considerable buzz in camp as a non-roster invite. He only threw 44 innings last year due to a biceps injury, but in that time he struck out 82 hitters and was a top-five pitching prospect entering 2023. Tiedemann is going to start 2024 in the minor leagues to gain more experience, but it would be an upset if he didn't make his major-league debut at some point later in the year. He's worth stashing in deep-mixed fantasy leagues for his upside. Tiedemann had a 2.50 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 23 walks over four starts in the Arizona Fall League last year.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Invited To Spring Training

    Headshot for Ricky Tiedemann

    Toronto Blue Jays pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann was among a group of non-roster players given invites to major-league spring training on Monday. Tiedemann, MLB Pipeline's No. 29 overall prospect, was limited to only 44 innings (15 starts) last year because of a biceps injury, but the 21-year-old southpaw still managed to strike out an impressive 82 batters. He looked good in the Arizona Fall League as well, posting a 2.50 ERA with 23 K's and eight walks and is one of the best overall pitching prospects in baseball entering the 2024 season. Barring another injury, Tiedemann should make his big-league debut for Toronto this year. However, the Blue Jays will not rush their best pitching prospect. At the very least, he should already be stashed in all dynasty/keeper leagues.
