  • Thomas Hatch: Heading to Japan

    Hatch is expected to sign a contract with the Nippon-Ham Fighters of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan, Yakyu Cosmopolitan reports.

    Hatch had been on the Pirates' 40-man roster but evidently was allowed to pursue an opportunity overseas. The 29-year-old right-hander holds a career 4.96 ERA and 61:33 K:BB over 69 innings at the major-league level covering parts of four seasons.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Optioned to Indianapolis

    Pittsburgh optioned Hatch to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

    Kyle Nicolas has been selected from Indianapolis to fill the vacant spot in the Pirates' bullpen. Hatch, 28, carries a 4.08 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 26:12 K:BB across 28.2 major-league innings this season.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Gets another opener assignment

    Hatch is listed as the Pirates' opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Hatch will be opener for the Pirates for the second time this season, after he previously tossed three scoreless innings in an Aug. 21 matchup with the Cardinals. Since that time, Hatch has made three relief appearances for the Pirates, the most recent of which was a one-inning outing Wednesday. He should be able to give the Pirates around 2-to-3 innings Saturday before likely giving way to Bailey Falter, whom Hatch opened for back on Aug. 21.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Strong showing as opener

    Hatch did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing two hits and one walk over three scoreless innings against St. Louis. He struck out one.

    Hatch served as Pittsburgh's opener Monday, after he had exclusively pitched out of the bullpen this year for both the Blue Jays and Pirates. The 28-year-old righty fired three scoreless frames and handed the ball off to Bailey Falter, who operated as the team's bulk reliever. In four appearances since Hatch was claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh on Aug. 6, he has posted a 1.93 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP with two holds across 9.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Set to open Monday's game

    Hatch will serve as the Pirates' opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Cardinals, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Hatch has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen so far this season and tossed a scoreless inning against the Twins on Saturday, so his appearance Monday will likely be a brief one. Assuming that's the case, Bailey Falter seems to be the most likely option to operate as the primary pitcher behind Hatch.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Joining big-league bullpen

    Hatch will join the Pirates on Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Hatch was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays last Friday and claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh on Sunday. The 28-year-old right-hander holds a career 5.40 ERA and 45:26 K:BB in 46.2 major-league innings.

  • Pirates' Thomas Hatch: Claimed by Pittsburgh

    Hatch was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Sunday.

    Hatch was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, but he'll now have a chance to carve out a role as part of the Pirates' 40-man roster. Over six relief appearances with Toronto this year, he posted a 4.26 ERA and 2.37 WHIP in 6.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Designated for assignment

    Hatch was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Hatch spent only a couple of days in the majors and gave up three runs (two earned) in 2.1 innings of relief Thursday. The 28-year-old right-hander heads into DFA limbo carrying a 5.40 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 45:26 K:BB in 46.2 career innings at the MLB level.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Recalled from Triple-A

    Toronto recalled Hatch from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 28-year-old right-hander will replace Nate Pearson in the Blue Jays' bullpen ahead of Wednesday night's game against the Orioles. Hatch holds a career 5.28 ERA and 43:25 K:BB in 44.1 innings of work at the major-league level.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Shuffled back to Buffalo

    Hatch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Hatch was recalled Saturday, though his only appearance came Thursday, when he allowed two earned runs and recorded only one out in the opening game of the doubleheader. A former starter, Hatch has proven to be a reliable reliever with Buffalo this season, though he's never had sustained success in the majors.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Back in Toronto

    The Blue Jays recalled Hatch from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    The Jays optioned Hatch to Triple-A on June 16, but he's now back to provide depth to Toronto's bullpen. Hatch has yet to give up a run in the majors this season through 3.2 innings, and he's allowed just one run to score in four frames since heading back to the minors. Trent Thornton was optioned to Buffalo in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Sent down to Triple-A

    Hatch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Hatch has tossed 3.2 scoreless innings with an 8:3 K:BB this season during his brief time in the majors, but he's being jettisoned back to the minors nonetheless. Adam Cimber is back from paternity leave to take his roster spot.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Added to MLB roster

    Toronto recalled Hatch from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Hatch will provide a fresh arm for the Toronto bullpen. The 28-year-old has made two scoreless appearances for the Blue Jays in 2023 with a 3:1 K:BB over 1.1 innings of work. Bowden Francis was optioned back to Durham in the corresponding transaction.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Optioned to Buffalo

    The Blue Jays optioned Hatch to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Hatch was solid through his two appearances since being recalled last week. He threw 1.1 scoreless frames with three strikeouts and will now return to the minors, where he holds a less-impressive 4.91 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through 22 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Recalled from Triple-A

    Toronto recalled Hatch from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Hatch will join the Blue Jays' bullpen ahead of the second game of their big four-game series against the Yankees. He had posted a 4.91 ERA and 28:12 K:BB through 22 innings this season at Triple-A.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Optioned to Triple-A Buffalo

    Hatch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Hatch came up short in his bid to make the Opening Day roster. The right-hander struggled in Florida to the tune of a 9.35 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over 8.2 innings of work, and he'll head to Buffalo to begin his journey as an up-and-down option for Toronto in the 2023 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Sharp in relief

    Hatch struck out one in a perfect sixth inning during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.

    The fact that the right-hander was being used for a short relief outing this late in camp could be a sign the Blue Jays plan to transition him to the bullpen on a full-time basis this season rather than stretching him back out to start at Triple-A Buffalo. Hatch's 9.35 ERA and 2.08 WHIP through 8.2 innings this spring are ugly, but they come with an 11:2 K:BB, and he could be an option later this season when the big-league 'pen needs reinforcements.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Sent packing

    Hatch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    It was difficult to envision Hatch sticking around with the big-league team after he was clobbered for 10 earned runs on 12 hits in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. Hatch was replaced on the active roster by Trevor Richards (neck). Given he has an ERA north of 5.00 with Buffalo too, Hatch could be a DFA candidate around the trade deadline.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Rocked for 10 earned runs

    Hatch (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays, allowing 10 runs on 12 hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out four.

    The Rays swept the twin bill, and Hatch didn't really give his team a chance in the nightcap. He gave up runs in each of his first three innings, and Isaac Paredes and Francisco Mejia added on with homers in the fifth. Hatch was not the designated 27th man -- that was Casey Lawrence -- but it would not be a surprise to see Hatch sent down after this showing.

  • Blue Jays' Thomas Hatch: Called up ahead of start

    Hatch was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Hatch will make his season debut as the starter in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay. The right-hander has made 12 starts in Buffalo this year and has posted a 5.12 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 63.1 innings.
