  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Borucki (wrist) will be shut down for several weeks after being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Borucki initially went on the injured list in early April with what was called left triceps inflammation at the time. He had a setback last month when he tried to throw and now has a new diagnosis. With an open-ended timetable, Borucki is a candidate to move to the 60-day injured list when/if the Pirates need to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Suffers setback

    Borucki (triceps) felt soreness after playing catch last week but hopes to resume throwing in the next few days, reports.

    Borucki was placed on the injured list April 7 and was not shut down for long. However, he remains without a timeline to return, and it's unclear whether he may need a rehab assignment before being activated from the injured list.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Expects to resume throwing soon

    Borucki (triceps) is expected to begin a throwing program soon, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Borucki landed on the injured list over the weekend with left triceps inflammation, but he's already feeling better and it sounds like he could require only a minimum stay on the IL. The left-hander collected a 2.45 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 33:4 K:BB over 40.1 innings with Pittsburgh in 2023.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Lands on injured list

    Borucki was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with left triceps inflammation, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The left-hander presumably picked up the injury during his last outing Friday versus Baltimore, when he allowed two runs on three hits over one-third of an inning. Borucki doesn't have an official timeline for his return but will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Reaches agreement with Pittsburgh

    Borucki signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Pirates on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Borucki gets a well-deserved raise after delivering a 2.45 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 33:4 K:BB over 40.1 innings with Pittsburgh in 2023. He projects to operate in a setup role in 2024.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Opening Sunday's game

    Borucki will serve as the Pirates' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Twins, Justice delos Santos of reports.

    He's expected to work in front of Osvaldo Bido, who will likely serve as a bulk reliever after he had been initially listed as the Pirates' starting pitcher for the series finale in Minnesota. The left-handed Borucki previously served as an opener for Bido on July 22 against the Angels, striking out three over 1.2 scoreless frames.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Called up from Indianapolis

    Borucki's contract was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pirates on Sunday.

    Borucki will take the roster spot of Jose Hernandez after Hernandez was placed on the injured list with a calf strain. Signed to a minor-league contract by the Pirates in May after electing free agency rather than accepting an outright assignment from the Cubs, Borucki will be a middle-innings option for the Bucs while he's on the major-league roster.

  • Pirates' Ryan Borucki: Inks minors deal with Pittsburgh

    Borucki signed a minor-league contract Tuesday with the Pirates.

    Borucki elected to become a free agent after getting pushed off the Cubs' 40-man roster earlier this month. He did not get into a major-league game during his short time with Chicago and will presumably be stationed at the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis. The 29-year-old lefty reliever struggled to a 5.68 ERA in 25.1 big-league innings last season between Toronto and Seattle.

  • Ryan Borucki: Heads to open market

    Borucki elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Rather than sticking around in the Cubs organization with the club's top minor-league affiliate, the lefty reliever will hit the open market with the hope of finding a landing spot that can present him with a clearer path back to the majors. Prior to being outrighted off the 40-man roster, Borucki logged a 12.00 ERA and 2.11 WHIP over his nine innings at Iowa.

  • Cubs' Ryan Borucki: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Borucki cleared waivers and was outrighted Friday to Triple-A Iowa, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Borucki can either accept the assignment to Triple-A or elect to become a free agent. He was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Tuesday after a short stint in the majors during which he did not make an appearance.

  • Cubs' Ryan Borucki: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Cubs designated Borucki for assignment Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Borucki just had his contract selected to the major-league roster Sunday and he didn't wind up making an appearance during his brief time with the Cubs. Catcher Miguel Amaya has been called up from Double-A Tennessee in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Ryan Borucki: Added to MLB roster

    The Cubs selected Borucki's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Borucki will have a chance to make his 2023 debut with the Cubs after signing with the club as a non-roster invitee over the winter. The left-hander will be an option in the middle innings while with Chicago. Caleb Kilian was optioned to Iowa in the corresponding transaction.

  • Cubs' Ryan Borucki: Set for third spring appearance

    Borucki (forearm) is scheduled to make his third Cactus League appearance in Monday's game against the Mariners, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Between his first two relief outings of the spring, Borucki gave up one earned run on two hits while striking out three in two innings. The southpaw finished the 2022 season on the Mariners' 60-day injured list due to a forearm strain, and after being removed from Seattle's 40-man roster in November and electing free agency, Borucki struck a minor-league deal with the Cubs in January. He's attending camp as a non-roster invitee and is hoping to win a spot in Chicago's Opening Day bullpen.

  • Cubs' Ryan Borucki: Lands with Cubs

    Borucki (forearm) and the Cubs agreed Wednesday on a minor-league deal, Robert Murray of reports.

    The contract presumably includes an invitation to big-league spring training, where Borucki will look to compete for a spot in the Cubs' Opening Day bullpen. Before putting himself in consideration for a roster spot with Chicago, the 28-year-old will first have to prove that he's fully past the left forearm strain that sidelined him for the final two months of the 2022 campaign. Prior to getting hurt last season, Borucki made 32 appearances in the majors between the Blue Jays and Mariners, netting a 5.68 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB across 25.1 innings.

  • Ryan Borucki: Trying luck in free agency

    Borucki (forearm) elected free agency after he cleared outright waivers Wednesday.

    Borucki finished the 2022 season on Seattle's 15-day injured list with a left forearm strain, an injury that prevented him from making any appearances out of the bullpen after Aug. 8. With the southpaw having turned in an underwhelming 5.68 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 25.1 big-league innings prior to landing on the shelf, the Mariners weren't interested in adding him back to the 40-man roster and tendering him a contract for 2023. The 28-year-old may be ready to go for spring training, but he'll likely have to settle for a minor-league deal in free agency this offseason.

  • Mariners' Ryan Borucki: Chances for return dwindling

    Borucki (forearm) is slated to undergo more medical testing in Seattle before the week is out but is running out of time to return this season, the team's official site reports. "He'd have to put a ball in his hand real soon to have a chance to come back and help us," manager Scott Servais said.

    Borucki sustained his injury during an Aug. 8 relief appearance against the Yankees and hit the injured list a day later. Now approaching one month on the shelf and with no reports of an imminent return, it appears Borucki, who's 2-0 with a 4.26 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and four holds across 21 appearances since joining the Mariners, could be sidelined the rest of the regular season.

  • Mariners' Ryan Borucki: Lands on IL

    The Mariners placed Borucki (forearm) on the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

    Borucki's move to the IL was easy to see coming after he was diagnosed with a left forearm strain when he exited early in his relief appearance during Monday's loss to the Yankees. Even if Borucki's forearm strain is revealed to be of the low-grade variety, he's still likely to spend more than the minimum 15 days on the shelf. The Mariners recalled fellow left-handed reliever Brennan Bernardino from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

  • Mariners' Ryan Borucki: Likely IL-bound with forearm strain

    The Mariners are expected to place Borucki on the 15-day injured list Tuesday after he was removed from Monday's 9-4 loss to the Yankees with a left forearm strain, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    He's scheduled to undergo an MRI early Tuesday as the Mariners look to determine the severity of Borucki's forearm strain, but injuries of these sort typically require more than 15 days of recovery time. Since being acquired from the Blue Jays in early June, Borucki has appeared in 21 games out of the Seattle bullpen and has posted a 4.26 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB in 19 innings while collecting two wins and four holds.

  • Mariners' Ryan Borucki: Nabs second win Sunday

    Borucki (2-0) recorded the win in a victory over the Rangers on Sunday, firing 1.1 scoreless innings during which he issued two walks and recorded a strikeout.

    Borucki wasn't at his sharpest and labored a bit as a result, needing 27 pitches to record four outs. However, the southpaw served as an important bridge to the sixth inning after starter Chris Flexen, working on short rest, exited following 76 pitches. Sunday's appearance was the seventh consecutive scoreless effort for Borucki, and he's now recorded a win in two of his last three outings.

  • Mariners' Ryan Borucki: Impressive for first win

    Borucki (1-0) nabbed the win in an extra-innings victory over the Blue Jays on Friday, firing two perfect innings during which he recorded a strikeout.

    Borucki earned every bit of his first win -- which notably came against his old squad -- turning in a highly efficient outing that saw him pound 14 of his 21 pitches into the strike zone. The 28-year-old southpaw was rewarded for his pristine effort Friday when Eugenio Suarez walked it off with a three-run home run in the bottom of the 11th, and Borucki has now turned in eight scoreless appearances in his last nine trips to the mound, including five straight.
