Ryan Thompson allowed two runs and three walks while striking out three over one 1/3 innings in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALDS.
Thompson was used as the opener in Game 4 and picked up the loss on Thursday. He walked three and surrendered a home run to Luke Voit in the first inning. Thompson was quickly replaced by Ryan Yarbrough in the second. It is unclear if the 28-year-old will be used as an opener for the ALCS against the Astros if the Rays advance.
Ryan Thompson will serve as the Rays' opener in Game 4 of the ALDS on Thursday.
The expectation is that Ryan Yarbrough will be the "follower", though that hasn't been officially announced. Tampa Bay can advance to the ALCS with a win today. The Yankees are countering with Jordan Montgomery.
